Learn more about Gabriel Performance Products

Gabriel Performance Products’ legacy dates to 1955, when the Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) began developing what is today our 40-acre plant site in Ashtabula, Ohio. In 1962, the ADM plant was purchased by Diamond Shamrock Chemicals Company.  Diamond Shamrock greatly expanded the facility’s resources, including equipping it to perform product research and development. Occidental Chemical Company acquired Diamond Shamrock Chemicals in 1986 and further strengthened the plant’s capabilities and infrastructure.

Recognizing the continuing potential of the plant and its people, Gabriel Holdings purchased the facility in 2001 and formed Gabriel Performance Products. In 2014 Gabriel was purchased by Audax Capital, and embarked on their current buy and build strategy.  In 2015 Gabriel added an additional manufacturing facility in Rock Hill South Carolina, and two additional product families.  Today, Gabriel Performance Products delivers to the marketplace all the benefits of a proven and growing history as a chemical industry leader.

Gabriel goes far beyond compliance with applicable laws and regulations. In addition to being ISO 14000 and ISO 18000 certified, we look for opportunities to proactively make our company and community attractive places to work and live.
