Yokogawa Corporation of America has been approved as an affiliate member by the Board of Directors for the American Chemical Council (ACC). The ACC is America’s oldest trade association of its kind, representing companies engaged in the business of chemistry.
“ACC had a strong year of growth in 2015 and continues to add to that with the addition of these new members,” said ACC President and CEO Cal Dooley. “As our membership expands, ACC continues to strengthen its position as the leading voice of the chemical industry throughout the value chain.”
ACC affiliate members consist of the chemical industry’s value chain partners and are not chemical manufacturers. Affiliate membership requires participation in an approved environment, health, safety, and security performance program. Yokogawa has OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 certifications.

Yokogawa is the number one leading global supplier of distributed controls systems and process safety systems to chemical manufacturers. As an ACC affiliate member, Yokogawa will gain access to market intelligence, networking opportunities, a forum for education, and a venue to work collaboratively with ACC on mutual advocacy issues. The council’s mission is to deliver business value through exceptional advocacy, and to foster a regulatory and marketplace environment that allows members to innovate, expand, and efficiently create products that respond to consumer demand. The ACC aims to promote and protect the business of chemistry’s leadership in driving innovation, creating jobs, and enhancing safety in performance, processes and products.
