On September 1, 2014, Fanwood Chemical, Inc. (FCI) announced that it had assumed Richard F. Buhn’s agrochemical-oriented import and export monitoring business. FCI took this step because we recognized that for more than 30 years, Buhn’s reports had set a standard of excellence that others have sought to emulate. We also recognized that Dick’s activities would fit into FCI very well. FCI has more than 25 years of experience monitoring movements of specialty chemicals into and out of the US as well as other parts of the world.
Fanwood Chemical’s principal, V.M. (Jim) DeLisi, has been with FCI for 38 years. He has expertise in the tracing of imports and exports, both here and abroad, the sale of specialty chemicals and intermediates internationally, as well as the marketing of toll manufacturing capabilities. He has particular expertise in all areas of the harmonized tariff system, including classification issues, rules of origin, and temporary duty suspension. In addition, he has experience with trade remedy cases, and has been deeply involved with REACh. Please visit FCI’s website at www.fanwoodchemical.com for more information on our company.
FCI offers clients an enhanced service, while maintaining much of the formatting to which Dick’s clients had become accustomed. Our goal remains providing the most accurate, up-to-date trade data available so that our customers can develop a better understanding of the competitive landscape.
In addition, we are pleased to advise that we have Buhn’s historical data and product studies. In some instances, we can provide an accurate historical record going all the way back to 1984.
