Has it been 60 years already?

In 1955, DeVere Dawald had an idea that changed the way we clean even today.  He developed and patented the first specialty surfactant that made it possible to have an “all purpose cleaner”.  That was the first time other companies copied DeVere, but not the last.  Our founder laid the groundwork for the DeVere of today.  We are still family owned and hold the same core values DeVere instilled in the company to which he gave his name.
