Research and development (R&D) and procurement professionals can now source Alnor Oil Company’s products on the leading digital customer experience platform for ingredients, polymers, and chemicals. 

Family owned and operated since 1968, Alnor provides natural, non-hazardous, non-polluting, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly products to the chemical industry.

“Joining Knowde was an easy decision for us,” said Jonathan Kaplan, Co-President of Alnor Oil Company. “Leading chemical companies around the world are using Knowde to find suppliers and we look forward to working closely with the team at Knowde to connect with those prospective customers.” 

With Knowde, formulators, R&D professionals, and procurement teams can search for Alnor’s products, request documents, order samples, receive quotes, and access experts who can answer technical questions.
