About Share Corporation
In 1970, Paul Des Jardins had a vision.
His vision was of a corporation that offered its customers
high-quality chemical products at a great price. On November 9,
after meeting with 13 individuals who shared Des Jardins' desire
and determination to make his vision a reality, Share Corporation
Share Corporation's original strategic plan was to service the
end-user directly with competitively priced quality products, all
while assuring the corporation and its sales force of a fair
profit. This plan was implemented at a small, 10,000 square-foot
warehouse in Brookfield, Wisconsin, where $100,000 worth of
merchandise was shipped in it's first month of existence.
Over the next decade, Share experienced tremendous growth in sales,
size and diversity.
After moving into a new 30,000 square-foot warehouse in 1980, Share
purchased Athea Laboratories, Inc., a specialty-chemical
manufacturer and product development company. It wasn't long after
the purchase of Athea that Share became an industry leader in the
niche market of chemical specialties.
With the help of Athea's research and development expertise, Share
quickly expanded it's product line to their current level of over
400 specialty-chemical products. From herbicides to insecticides to
industrial cleaners to aerosols—Share has a product to serve
virtually every industry and business.
Share's corporate headquarters is currently located in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, where today's employees continue to bring Paul Des
Jardins' initial vision to light and maintain the family tradition
that he instilled throughout the entire corporation.
