Variety may be the spice of life, but not everyone likes things spicy. Gaylord Chemical Company manufactures just three products: dimethyl sulfide, dimethyl sulfoxide, and dimethyl sulfone. But those three chemicals go into a number of end products, including pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, petrochemicals, inks, and solvents, as well as in semiconductor manufacturing. The company operates a manufacturing facility and research and technology center in Louisiana and sells globally. It had been a subsidiary of Temple-Inland as a result of that company's 2002 purchase of the former Gaylord Container Company. Temple-Inland then sold Gaylord Container's chemicals business to members of that unit's management team.
