The Customer Care Experience

About Flo-Kem

Chemco Products Company is a leading specialty chemical company whose Quality, Innovation, Custom Tailored Programs and Customer Service exceeds the expectations of our customers.

In 1962, our founder, Lyman M. “Bill” Cole, started Chemco to fulfill a small niche in developing and selling conveyor chain lubricants and cleaners to industry in Southern California. Lyman, M. “Bill” Cole also founded, Flo-Kem, to manufacture all of the specialty blended chemicals for Chemco.

For over 5 decades, Chemco and Flo-Kem operated as two separate companies and Chemco was considered to be Flo-Kem’s largest customer. In 2013, the two companies merged and are known legally as LMC Enterprises dba Chemco Products Company and dba Flo-Kem.

However, the core focus is on Dairy, Food and Beverage and Water and Waste Water Treatment. Our products and tailored programs are now distributed nationwide. Key to Chemco’s continuing success is our willingness and flexibility to be responsive to the customers’ individual needs.
