What We Do


Investment in infrastructure.
Commitment to quality. And to you.

Since 1959, Reagent has continually invested in railcars, trucks, facilities and people to service the needs of our customers and suppliers.  These assets enable Reagent to safely and efficiently provide the best quality HCl throughout the supply chain.

Quality Assurance

Our philosophy on quality is simple. We adhere to all applicable standards and specific customer requirements to deliver a quality product that meets our customers’ needs. Our Quality Assurance Department has multiple laboratories strategically located across the United States.

The Reagent Network

Investment in infrastructure, personnel, and technology have enabled us to become the largest marketer of liquid hydrochloric acid in North America.

The most HCl railcars in the industry.

We have more than 3,000 rubber lined railcars — the largest HCl fleet in North America. Our advanced fleet is designed specifically for the safe and efficient transport of HCl and is meticulously maintained in our state-of-the-art repair and rubber lining facilities.

Reliable supply chain.

We know our suppliers and customers rely on a consistent supply chain. To meet your needs, we have built storage complexes strategically located around the country to support all stages of supply. With industry leading storage capacity, service interruptions due to market fluctuations in HCl production and consumption are minimized.

An extensive tank truck fleet.

Our fleet of several hundred tractors and trailers provide efficient service to our customers and suppliers.  Utilizing modern in-vehicle technology systems we provide 24/7 service, 365 days a year.
