Chroma has 6 locations throughout the United States. We have a broad customer base with extensive product offerings and technologies. Many of our materials are used in products you might see every dayù for example if you washed your hair this morning, the shampoo bottle you used may have been made from one of our products. Or if you were working outside with lawn care equipment or a chain saw, one of our products may have helped you accomplish a task to help you maintain your home. More unique uses of our products can be seen in specialized applications where our products support our active military in the work they do to keep all of us safe. From routine daily-life to life-saving applicationsùwe make a difference. Our broad scope of products and services keeps our environment interesting and challenging with a culture focused on success. If you want to make a difference in a fast-paced environment with a company large enough to offer you room to grow but not so large that you become ôjust a numberö, Chroma might be the ideal company for you.
