American Pride


100 Years of Manufacturing Excellence

Hydrox Laboratories was originally established in 1913 and has the unique distinction of being one of the oldest continuously running manufacturing companies in the United States. The company has been manufacturing hydrogen peroxide since 1913.

In 1981, Mr. K. Ramanandan (Ram), a research chemist by trade, purchased Hydrox Laboratories and the company has since expanded its product line to meet the needs of its diverse markets. Today, Hydrox manufactures over 100 products, from hydrogen peroxide and rubbing alcohol to a surgical instrument care line.

Hydrox Laboratories is one of the few MBE (Minority Business Enterprise) certified manufacturers of health and beauty products in the U.S. We pride ourselves on the relationships we have built with our many long-term, loyal clients, as evidenced by the numerous World-Class Supplier Awards we’ve received from healthcare, beauty and retail industry leaders.

Complete state-of-the-art manufacturing, warehousing and laboratory capabilities comprise over 100,000 square feet of space in our corporate headquarters. The facility was custom designed to meet the world-class standards of our customers and position us as a strategic supplier in our industry. Hydrox Laboratories’ strategic location in the metro Chicago area is 30 minutes northwest of O’Hare International Airport. The corporate headquarters is ideally located off the Northwest Tollway in Elgin, Illinois (near the Route 31 exit).
