Company History

In the early 1980s Ed Geddes was working as an engineer for a Pressure Washing manufacturing company when he had a brilliant idea: to create boxes or “packs” that would contain all the chemicals to make a barrel of soap. The Drum Pack and Vector Laboratories were born. In the late 1980s and early 1990s the company was expanding with the manufacture of detergents for companies such as Landa, Inc. Rug Rover and others. Vector has since grown with new customers, new private label accounts and new products using the latest innovative technology available in the Chemical Industry today. Read More

We are always researching the newest chemicals and formulations to bring the latest innovations in the Industry to our customers. Our detergents are 100 % BIODEGRADABLE and we are also leading the Industry by being entirely Nonylphenol FREE. We will soon be happy to report that all of our detergents will be Phosphate free.
