Summary

ChemPoint, one of the leading e-distributors of specialty and fine chemicals, works with a literal who's who of chemical suppliers to take over product lines in geographies where there are small customers. The company is able to obtain the products from suppliers in bulk and then, by use of strategic locations, advanced supply chain practices, and heavy use of the web, provide an effective distribution channel to this special, small customer segment of the market.
