NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ (June 8, 2021) -Celebrating its 50th year in operation, Spectrum Chemical Mfg. Corp., a global leader in fine chemicals, laboratory equipment and supplies, has partnered with the City of New Brunswick to provide personal protective equipment to police and fire department personnel. This month Spectrum Chemical donated 1,000 N95 respirators and several cases of Spectrum-brand hand sanitizer to support New Brunswick first responders.

The company’s corporate headquarters in New Brunswick, NJ, includes major production, distribution and warehouse operations, as well as quality control labs and a pharmaceutical compounding training center.

“Our company has been a part of New Brunswick for 31 years, and we remain committed to giving back to the community that welcomed and supported us,” said Randy Burg, Spectrum Chemical president and CEO. “As part of our 2021 Giving Back Program, we want to thank first responders with New Brunswick police and fire departments for their heroic efforts on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. Spectrum is extremely happy to show our appreciation and support with these protective masks and other supplies.”

Throughout 2021 and beyond, Spectrum Chemical plans to continue to share its 50 years of success with local communities.

“We’re grateful to have Spectrum Chemical as a long-time partner in our city,” added New Brunswick Mayor Jim Cahill. “The true definition of any successful business or corporation is one that prioritizes bettering its own community, and Spectrum sets the standard. We thank them for this generous donation.”
