Whitaker started in 1928 with a single gas pump and a mission to provide motor fuels and oils, along with the highest quality service, to independent retailers and service stations. Since then, we have expanded and diversified to become one of the top chemical and composite material distributors, blenders and packagers in the Southeast.  We have evolved from a small, local operation to a regional company serving thousands of customers.

Our vision: We’re committed to growing our business by adding new customers and offering new chemical solutions.  We’ll have the best leaders, managers and people in the industry.

Our purpose: Providing solutions to our customers and stability for our employees.

Having grown steadily throughout our 90-year history while diversifying and expanding our products and services, Whitaker fulfills orders from our facilities in Georgia, Florida and South Carolina and has a strong sales presence in Alabama and Tennessee.

A fourth generation family-operated business, we take immense pride in mastering world-class customer service, building strong supplier relationships and providing a great workplace for our dedicated team of employees. At Whitaker, fairness and honesty aren’t just core values; they’re a way of life.
