Target was established in Gardena, California, in 1969 as A.S.L. Chemicals. In May 2010, a joint venture between Target Specialty Products and B&G Chemical Company extended Target’s foot print to Texas as well as a branch in Oklahoma City, OK.
In 2012 Ehrlich Distribution joined forces with Target Specialty Products. Ehrlich Distribution’s goal since its founding in 1928, has been to provide products for the control of pests and vegetation. They have been serving the East Coast to the Mid-West, providing a comprehensive approach to our customers’ needs.
Target again expanded by purchasing Residex in July of 2016. This increased our presence in the Midwest and East by adding 23 locations to our existing 19 in the US plus Canada, and additionally over 180 associates, expanding our services throughout North America.
We are a Founders Circle Member of the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. Pledging to support the Urban Entomology program at the University helps ensure that they can continue valuable research in the field of pest management.
We will continue to focus on intelligent growth and serving the needs of customers and employees.
