Vernon CaliforniaC.C.I. (formerly Cherokee Chemical Company, Inc). is a privately held corporation, founded in 1950. It was first incorporated in California in 1957 and re-incorporated in 1964 as a State of California “C” Corporation. Our base business at that time was cleaning compounds for USDA food plants, as well as for metal finishing shops.


Over the years, we have developed over 150 USDA approved formulas for cleaning compounds, cooling tower, and boiler treatment products, as well as AWWA approved wastewater materials. Currently, C.C.I. lists a total of over 5,000 products in its list of assets.


Along with our own facilities, we also have partnerships with several international chemical companies. The purpose of these partnerships is to allow a free-flowing transfer of goods, services and technologies, all of which ultimately benefit our customers. It is these sort of symbiotic relationships that have allowed C.C.I. to give its customers the highest quality products and services at the lowest possible prices.


The scope of C.C.I.’s business has broadened considerably since 1950. While still maintaining its position in the USDA sanitation chemistries, cooling tower, and boiler chemistries, C.C.I. now provides the following industries with water treatment chemistries and wastewater treatment chemistries – along with unmatched technical service:
