COVID-19 Update

Dear Valued Customer,

GFS Chemicals is a Columbus, OH, USA. based manufacturer of specialty and fine chemicals serving customers worldwide since 1928. GFS is closely monitoring global, national, and local developments of the COVID-19 outbreak, and we would like to share an update on our current state of business.


Like many other businesses GFS has instituted risk mitigation strategies to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Our site-specific safety committees have been increasing cleaning and disinfection activities in our facilities.  This is an ongoing effort that will continue for the foreseeable future.  GFS is a B to B business with no customer interaction at our facilities which fundamentally reduces the risk of contamination from outside sources. GFS facilities are 100% owned and controlled by GFS or holding companies associated with GFS and we share no facilities with other entities or tenants.


At this time our manufacturing levels remain at full capacity, and we currently have stock available of our forecasted products. We are proactively planning for any changes in either local or national situations and will promptly communicate updates if and when necessary.  As such, GFS does recommend that you evaluate your need for any critical materials for your laboratory for the next few months and place orders accordingly.  This will help to ensure you receive the materials you need in a timely manner for the smooth operation of your business. This being said, we would like to encourage you not to order items in excess of your normal safety stock. 


GFS Chemicals is committed to its customers throughout this time and its staff is ready to work with and understand the challenges its customers face and delivers custom solutions to meet their needs. GFS has delivered results in demanding markets for over 90 years and will continue to do so going forward.


In addition to our normal phone and email customer support activities, we would like to encourage you to check out and register on our full e-commerce website at
