With more than 75 years of industry experience, Goulston is a market leader in the chemicals sector. While much of our experience and history is in the synthetic fibers area, we also have developed expertise in other surface modification technologies. Our mission at Goulston is to be the global leader in surface modification technologies by providing our customers with innovative products and services that are consistently superior in technology, quality, performance and value.
Founded in 1937, Goulston began operations in Scituate, MA providing spinning lubricants to the woolen and worsted mills of New England. Since that time we have established ourselves as the largest dedicated supplier of formulated fiber lubricant products to the synthetic fiber manufacturing industry. Takemoto Oil & Fat Co., Ltd., purchased Goulston in 1988. Takemoto manufactures a wide range of fine chemicals and formulated products for use in the textile, construction, plastic and agricultural industries. The combination of these two companies, along with their dedication to research and development, technical services and marketing, has created the premier source of fiber lubricant technologies in the world.
