WASHINGTON (February 8, 2013) - The American Chemistry Council's (ACC) board of directors yesterday approved the addition of three new manufacturing member companies, two new Affiliate member companies, one new Associate member company and one new Responsible Care® Partner company. The Industrial Metal Catalyst Manufacturing Group also joined as a new product and market sector group under ACC's Chemical Product and Technology Division.

"The chemical industry is the cornerstone of this country's manufacturing future, so it's vitally important that we have common-sense, science-driven policies that encourage marketplace competition, fuel economic growth, and spur the innovations that make the world a better and safer place," said ACC President and CEO Cal Dooley . "Starting a new year with sustained growth really affirms the good work that we continue to do here at ACC as we make steady progress toward those goals," Dooley added.

In 2012, ACC added a total of nineteen new members in addition to eight product and sector groups.
