- Company Description:Founded in 1957, Helena Chemical Company has grown to be one of the nation’s foremost distributors of crop protection and crop production inputs and services for agricultural, turf & ornamental, forestry, aquatics and vegetation management markets.
Helena was on the leading edge of this trend and accelerated its expansion. In the late 1980's, it began acquiring companies and opening wholesale locations in the Midwest and other northern regions, including the Great Lake states and the Pacific Northwest. Fertilizer products and related services were also becoming a staple of Helena's offerings, along with pesticides, seed, and a growing, diverse line of proprietary products that the company developed under Helena Products Group.
Helena's Specialty Division also expanded its market presence in turf & ornamental, forestry, aquatics and vegetation management markets with similar product mixes and chemistries that are used in agriculture. The Specialty sales force now operates across the country in key markets in these unique and growing industries.
