Ascensus Specialties

Ascensus Specialties is a manufacturer of specialty chemicals.

Ascensus Specialties, headquartered in Elma, WA, is the global leader in sodium borohydride chemistry and participates primarily in two end-markets: pharmaceutical drug manufacturing and pulp & paper processing. In pharmaceutical drug manufacturing, sodium borohydride is used as a reducing agent. In pulp & paper processing, sodium borohydride is used as a bleaching agent to prepare paper products for end-customer use.

Wind Point acquired Ascensus Specialties in January 2015 as an add-on for Vertellus Specialties, Inc., a former Wind Point portfolio company. Ascensus Specialties is now a standalone company under Wind Point ownership.
