Serving multiple end-use customers that target municipal, industrial, agricultural, water treatment and chemical synthesis.
Responsibly Meeting the Chlorine Needs of Central U.S. and Western Canada
We are a regional manufacturer of chlorine produced at our two state-of-the-art facilities in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada and Port Edwards, Wisconsin, United States. We solely supply in railcar quantities and the risk of unscheduled weather related shutdowns at these two facilities is minimal.

The use of chlorine to disinfect water for drinking has been designated as one of the greatest public health achievements of the 20th century, virtually eliminating drinking water-borne pathogens such as typhoid and cholera. Chlorine is also an essential building block in the chemicals industry, assisting in the creation of a myriad of products we use every day for health, safety, nutrition, security, transportation, and high-tech innovation. Chlorine’s list of applications and uses includes everything from antibiotics and surgical equipment to foam seating, jet engines, semiconductors, vitamins and disinfectants.
An Active Supplier that Prevents Disruption
ERCO allocates a significant amount of capital each year to keep our plants operating at peak performance. Our dedicated R&D resources are tasked to ensure high quality control standards in our manufacturing processes. Additionally, our railcars are individually GPS-tracked for faster addressment of unforeseen issues and our customer service and logistic teams routinely monitor product movement.
Other ways we eliminate/minimize supply disruptions include:
- We offer Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) where customer inventory is checked daily with shipments adjusted to maintain target levels
- Weekly interdepartmental meetings to review/address customer inventory levels
