Since Superior was established in 1932 as a privately held family business in Indianapolis, we have worked to develop strong relationships with our customers. Nearly 90 years later, Superior has evolved into one of the top 20 chemical and top 5 composite distributors in North America. Now that's a testament to our partnerships!
A key point in our history was the company's conversion to an Employee Stock Ownership Plan in 2008. From that point forward, our team of nearly 300 employee-owners has been truly invested in serving our customers, suppliers, and communities.
From our start as a home fuel oil jobber, we have grown into a full-service distributor, manufacturer, and services provider. But more than that, we've developed a solid reputation for offering value-added solutions that improve your processes, keep you compliant, and save you money.

"SUPERIOR…not a name you slap on the front door of your business unless you’re ready to back it up. These folks do just that. I have had them show up in an emergency situation in the middle of the night to deliver supplies we needed as well as help us work through a problem we were having with paint adhesion that wasn’t related to their products. Reliable, trustworthy, honest and always got your back, that’s SUPERIOR!"
