Our Company

Our independence is your assurance of satisfaction.

In an industry that sees continued consolidation and corporate takeovers, Barton Solvents, Inc., remains fiercely independent, just as we have since our modest beginnings as a one-truck operation founded by Bud Barton in 1938.

As a family-owned company, our stock price or corporate dividends are of secondary concern. This enables us to keep our focus where it belongs. On you.

Our independence means we can better serve our customers large and small. We always have. We always will.

You’ll discover we don’t make a big issue about titles here. When we come to work in the morning, each of us has one major commitment: to provide you with the best customer service you’ll ever experience…anywhere.

We inventory and deliver chemicals from a large roster of suppliers. You can always select the products and formulations that meet your specifications precisely without having to compromise.

From a five-gallon pail or 55-gallon drum to a full transport load, Barton Solvents delivers the quantity of product you need. Every customer is important to us.

By utilizing our own delivery vehicles, we can tailor quantities to suit your application, and we get it there when you need it.

We serve customers in 13 states from six locations in the Upper Midwest. We warehouse most chemical products you use in your business. And with our owned fleet of more than 100 delivery units, we can move the product to wherever you need it fast.

When you work with Barton Solvents and our regular scheduled routes, you will know exactly when to place your order for Just-In-Time delivery. We can also help you maintain your inventory by using our keep-fill service.

Of course, we understand you may sometimes experience unusual depletion of your inventory. You can call us anytime for delivery of product to satisfy your unexpected requirements on short notice.
