  2. 2. ExCEllENCE ANd INNOvATION ACROSS THE PERIOdIC TAblE THE GFS PROMISE At GFS, we pride ourselves on delivering the product you want, with the consistency you need, in the packaging and quantities you require. We work with you to make sure you have exactly what you asked for, exactly when you need it. • Consistent quality: We don’t operate on a lot-selection basis. We manufacture to your specifications to ensure consistent quality each time you order, no matter the quantity. • Reliable delivery: We are a U.S. supplier with our operating and manufacturing headquar- ters in Ohio. Our domestic supply chain ensures reliable delivery with minimal risk of interruptions due to overseas instability. • Expert guidance: Our PhD and master-degreed chemists have the experience and education to answer your questions and solve your problems. We put our deep experience in inorganics to work for you to meet some of the most difficult technical challenges in the industry. • Superior service: We make it easy for you to order. We’ll work within your inventory requirements, ensure that all certificates are in place, and ship materials in the quantities and packaging that you require. GFS is a world leader in the manufacture of perchloric acids and saltsFor more than 80 years, our clients have relied on GFS Chemicals to meet exacting stan-dards in inorganic chemistry for a variety of R&D and industrial applications. We produce inorganics to meet customer specifications with consistency fromsmall bottles to multi-ton lots. That’s why our customers count on us when they needconsistent purity and quality throughout the product development cycle, from R&D andprototyping to full production scale. Our inorganic chemicals are used in processes across many different industries.• Aerospace• battery Production• Fuel Cells and Energy• Catalysts• Electronics• Mining• Pharmaceutical• Semiconductors
