Long-term Partnership with NexTec Helps HB Chemical Grow into a Major Global Player
HB Chemical selected NexTec Group as its business partner many years ago. Together they have built a technology infrastructure that has enabled the company to grow from $6 million to $135 million in annual revenues.
About HB Chemical

Microsoft Dynamics GP
Here’s how NexTec Group and Microsoft Dynamics GP helped solve HB Chemical’s challenges.
As a chemical manufacturer, HB Chemical must produce accurate Certificates of Analysis for the products it sells. “For years, we were able to get by with a Certificate of Analysis process that wasn’t even computerized,” recalls Annette Doria, VP of Operations at HB Chemical. “But as we grew, we clearly needed a purpose-built tool to help us both document and ensure the quality and consistency of our products. NexTec worked with us to build a Certificate of Analysis application that integrates with Microsoft Dynamics GP.”
The application houses all of the technical data needed and automatically generates the certificates and required safety data sheets during shipping.
