The companies ship in excess of 25,000,000 LBS per year.


In the late 90’s Velasco first purchased Warner Chemical which specializes in tunnel products, dressings, shampoos and all purpose cleaners. Shortly after JB Chemical, known for their oil & fuel treatments, was purchased and provided synergistic growth. Later P&B Manufacturing was acquired with an immense depth in emulsion engineering. He is actively looking for new acquisitions and is currently in preliminary talks with another factory in the same industry.


The companies sell to distributors/re-packers/wholesalers that re-sell to auto auctions, full service car washes, fully automated car washes, new car dealerships, used car dealerships, panel shops, reconditioning centers, body shops, high volume detail/valet centers and the public DIY (do it yourself).
