The Terra Firma Company LLC

Specialty chemicals distributor Dunleary Inc., which includes two recently acquired companies, has announced its new corporate identity: The Terra Firma Company LLC. The three-company rebranding will serve 28 states and cover a variety of chemical markets.

With the goal to provide stability for chemical suppliers and customers, Terra Firma has more than 50 employees on staff. The company also works with markets including: coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers, as well as plastics, oil and gas, and construction, among others.

Company Evolution

Terra Firma, headquartered in Towson, Maryland, will still maintain service in Baltimore, Boston and Dallas, the respective headquarters of the three companies, which will help ensure comprehensive coverage of these markets.

“Our three companies made a collective decision to combine and form Terra Firma, our vision of sure footing during changing times,” said CEO David Behan. “This was facilitated by our closely shared values, strong belief in customer centricity and changes in world markets.

“Our longevity has allowed us to provide our customers and principal partners with dependable and familiar faces that are always ready to serve. And by offering this stability, we allow them to focus on necessary changes while we remain a valued constant, or as our name implies, solid ground.”

Terra Firma’s management team includes John Lukens, COO; William Chestnutt, President; and Julia Williams, Executive Vice President.
