About us

Company details

Worthen Industries began in 1866 as Union Paste Company (UPACO). We have since grown to offer fifteen distinct product lines, but we keep the original values of our family-owned company alive.
We embrace sustainability and operate in a fully responsible manner according to our Corporate Values. And, of course, we take care of our employees and our community in the same way we would take care of our own family.

We honor our customers and their need for fast and accurate solutions. Our mission is simple: to exceed their expectations. After 150 years in the industry, we know how to meet your needs.
We provide value to our customers by being dynamic and “can do” when they present us with their unique needs.

Worthen Industries’ success is built on the simultaneous pursuit of economic viability, environmental quality, and worker-community health. Sometimes this is called Corporate Social Responsibility; we just call it our Responsibility.
We are committed to working with our customers, suppliers, and vendors to apply responsible and innovative environmental practices in our design, production, and distribution processes. We have several success stories from when we combined our passion for sustainability with our ability to creatively achieve customer goals. Worthen’s highly-qualified professional staff and specialized consultants are helping us to go beyond the mandatory regulatory requirements at our facilities.

Worthen Industries 250+ employees are among the best and brightest in our industries, and they are treated with the dignity and professionalism they deserve.
Safety is a non-negotiable. Our safety mission statement is driving us to be an accident-free work environment. In addition to our Employee Assistance Program, we offer our employees a Wellness Coach to build and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
We invest in our employees’ professional development and recognize when they go above and beyond to deliver value to our customers. After all, they are our best asset.

We don’t sell products--we sell solutions. That means when you present our team with a challenge, we are committed to finding you the answer.
We have the resources of five production facilities and fifteen Business Units at our disposal to tackle those problems that other companies won’t.
We employ a systems-thinking approach to every challenge, so you can count on us to evaluate all cost, environmental, safety, and end-customer factors during R&D and testing.

We are worldwide company, but we take pride in the local communities where we operate.
Worthen Industries is an active supporter of nonprofit organizations and associations. We are committed to encouraging employee wellness, participating in the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smoke Out and the Cigna/Elliot Hospital 5k Road Race. Many of our philanthropic efforts focus on environmental protection and sustainability.
Our employees are our company’s best ambassadors. They are encouraged to become involved in local community organizations to help make the world a better place.
