Our History

Specification Chemicals, Inc. has been a family-owned company since 1975. The company was founded by Clarence Ball, who started out working in the lumber industry in Arizona. He moved to Minnesota and, with the help of a large chemical company, formulated and developed the White Plastic® products. Later, Ball relocated to Boone, Iowa, and opened Specification Chemicals, Inc. where he manufactured coatings and converted roofing fabrics for contractors, homeowners, and private-labels for the roofing industry.
Later, Clarence’s daughter, who had a background in accounting, joined the business to head the office and cover everything in the back end of the business. His son also joined Specification Chemicals, Inc. and worked the manufacturing, product demonstration, and product support end of the business.

Mathew, a third-generation family member and MBA graduate, now runs the company alongside Suzy. As a family, we have been blessed, and we strive to offer excellent customer service and help our customers at every opportunity.
