Organic Technologies to Wiley Companies
In 2018, we decided it was time to go back to our roots. The name Organic Technologies served us well as we've grown over the last 20 years. As we look to the future, we believe that a name like Wiley Companies allows us to expand to meet our vision for growth while also paying homage to where we started. Wiley Companies honors our family's mission to leave a meaningful impact on the world and serves as a strong foundation for our company's operating values. Under the new Wiley Companies brand, we look forward to supporting our clients and our community for decades to come!

A Family Business at Heart
Privately held and family-operated for more than 35 years
The Wiley family purchased the research catalogue business from Albany International after its ChemSampCo acquisition in 1981. We’ve always been about growth—finding ways to continuously innovate and push the boundaries of what’s possible. Today, our team continues to work together to find creative solutions and enhance the wealth and wellbeing of our clients.
1951 - It all began with a research project
Vincent Wiley begins work with Dr. Kenneth Greenlee on a research project for the American Petroleum Institute (API) at the Ohio State University. Their goal is to synthesize, isolate, and catalogue all of the hydrocarbons, alcohols, and ketones in the gasoline range.
1964 - Founding ChemSampCo
Armed with experience and business savvy, API researchers Vincent Wiley and Dr. Kenneth Greenlee found Chemical Samples Company (ChemSampCo), a private enterprise in synthetic organic chemicals. ChemSampCo soon gains international recognition for supporting a fine chemical catalogue sales business offering over 1,800 high purity research chemicals for sale.
1978 - Commercializing insect pheromone technology
Over the years, ChemSampCo’s expertise in organic synthesis grew into the field of insect pheromones, or sex attractants. A large international conglomerate, Albany International, acquired ChemSampCo in 1978 to commercialize their insect pheromone technology.
1981 - Wiley Organics, Inc. takes over
After the ChemSampCo acquisition, Albany International sells the research catalogue business to Vincent, Dorothea, David, and Paul Wiley. The Wiley family founds Wiley Organics, Inc. and picks up where ChemSampCo left off. A catalogue of over 1,500 fine chemicals for industry and research are offered, focused primarily in hydrocarbons, alcohols, and ketones.
1986 - Moving into fine chemical, flavor & nutraceutical markets
With the expansion of larger volume projects, Wiley Organics soon outgrows the small 13,000 sq. ft. facility in Columbus, Ohio. A 50,000 sq. ft. facility in Coshocton, Ohio is acquired and the company greatly expands distillation and reactor capabilities. The larger facility provides for greater capacity and expanded growth into the fine chemical, flavor, and nutraceutical markets in the late 1980s and into the 1990s.
1990 - Introducing processing solutions for health & nutrition products
Wiley Organics continues to expand and acquires a facility in Newark, OH. Work continues to expand in fine chemicals, toll manufacturing, and in growing nutraceutical products. Wiley Organics builds upon the lessons learned over the past 40 years in synthesis and separations and begins to provide processing solutions for a fledgling health and nutrition products marketplace.
1996 - Introducing processing solutions for health & nutrition products
To reflect the increased focus on health and nutrition products, Wiley Organics adopts Organic Technologies as the “doing business as” (d.b.a.) name for the company. As production volumes and processing contracts grow, the company shifts focus on supporting larger scale business. Supporting a fine chemical catalogue business of over 1500 compounds no longer fits with the Organic Technologies business model, and the catalogue business is divested. Still operated successfully today under its age-old name, ChemSampCo, the catalogue business still thrives under new owners.
2003 - Expanding the Newark facility and implementing Emerson DeltaV®
Organic Technologies performs a major expansion at the Newark facility. This expansion was to toll manufacture large-scale GMP production of plant sterols for food and pharmaceutical uses for the largest producer of non-GMO pine sterols in the world, Arboris, LLC. Part of this expansion involved implementing Emerson DeltaV®, a world-class digital process control system for process automation and control. In addition, the expansion spurred us to bring our quality systems to the highest standards for Food GMPs and several demanding quality audits were passed.
2005 - Expanding for GMO plant sterols and more
Organic Technologies performs a major expansion at the Coshocton facility to toll produce GMO plant sterols and sterol esters from oilseed sources for a venture between P&G, Bunge North America, and Peter Cremer North America. Significant reaction, distillation, and material handling capacity is installed, including a 10,000sqft GMP packaging warehouse and rail tanker logistics for handling bulk materials.
2006 - Increasing production of ultra-high purity hydrocarbon gases
Organic Technologies builds and installs a high-efficiency hydrocarbon distillation still for increased production of ultra-high purity hydrocarbon gases to support chemical, polymer, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, and related markets.
2007 - Adding nutritional products to high purity product offerings
Organic Technologies completes third party Food GMP audit certification under the GMA-SAFE Supplier Assessments for Food Excellence. Results from the week-long comprehensive quality audit report are made available to customers online. Follow-up audits are performed on a two-year rolling basis.
Organic Technologies also introduces new nutritional products into the marketplace in 2007. A range of Plant Sterols, Sterol Esters, and Natural Tocopherols (Vitamin E) products are added to the company’s portfolio of high purity products for the health and nutritional market.
2008 - Walnut Street headquarters
Organic Technologies acquires a 230,000 sq. ft. warehouse and office in Coshocton, Ohio, greatly expanding the GMP storage and warehousing capabilities for raw materials and finished products. Company headquarters are established at 545 Walnut Street, and growth in the nutritional products and fine chemical markets continues.
2011 - Launching AlaskOmega
Organic Technologies launches a line of concentrated marine-sourced Omega-3 essential fatty acids, AlaskOmega. Freshly caught from the cold, clear waters of the Bering Sea, Organic Technologies’ Omega-3s are sourced and refined entirely within the borders of the United States.
2012 - Launching Wiley’s Finest™ nutritional supplement company
The company launches Wiley’s Finest™ Wild Alaskan Fish Oil with a mission to bring Personal. Sustainable. Potent.™ Omega-3 Fish Oil supplements to customers who value a made-in-the-USA, certified sustainably caught source.
2019 - Rebranded to Wiley Companies and opened the Granville Office
In an effort to take the company back to its roots while paving a strong path for the future, Organic Technologies was rebranded to Wiley Companies. The new name, honors the original name - Wiley Organics - and also establishes a new, modern face for the company as it expands into new markets and new locations around the world. The company also expanded and opened the Granville Office in the same year.
