Seidler Chemical Company will represent Degussa in the Northeast for the personal and home care business line, Glenn Corp. will manage the Midwest and R.O.S.S. will handle the Southwest. Taylor Chemical will manage home care in the Southeast with the exception of Florida. Personal care in the southeast as well as Florida will be handled by Ed Leonard.
