CPS Performance Materials

About Us

CPS is a rapidly growing specialty chemicals company with 3 business units – GEO Specialty Chemicals and FAR Chemical.  Our companies are leaders in their fields, stemming from strong technology capability to produce high value materials.  We focus on end markets where performance counts – including specialty coatings, eyecare materials, pharmaceutical intermediates, and animal and human nutrition ingredients.  We pride ourselves on working with our business partners to take on tough challenges and deliver innovative solutions.  

We also own a minority interest in USALCO, one of North America’s leading water treatment chemical producers with 27 sites extending from California to Puerto Rico.  Our minority ownership stake began in October 2021 when we merged our majority owed subsidiary, G2O Technologies, with USALCO. G2O Technologies was created in March 2020 when we combined the former GEO and Gulbrandsen water treatment businesses.
