Molex is a reliable partner that offers solutions to meet the needs of any industry. Whether you are in the oilfield, concrete, agricultural or asphalt industry, we have the resources to manufacture your product. Our specialty manufactured products are engineered using amines, glycols, glycol ethers, surfactants, alcohols and oleo chemicals.

Custom formulated products provide value added solutions for your business and everyone in your supply chain. Molex is ready to work with your technical group to select, formulate and prescreen suitable products to reduce the evaluation period and eliminate unnecessary testing.

With developmental labs in Texas and Alabama, we are continuously innovating to provide a reliable outlet for by-product, co-product and surplus chemicals. Materials are professionally handled and repurposed, rather than burned or sent for expensive disposal. Our ISO 9001:2015 certification guarantees safe product stewardship from manufacturing to final formulation.

For 2021, we are proud to announce the launch of Molex Specialty Solutions, a manufacturer's representative selling both proprietary and commodity products.


Molex was founded in 1985 by Rodger Bennett, a chemical engineer with a BS from Georgia Tech. While working as a plant manager, Rodger recognized the potential for by-products with industrial customers seeking lower cost raw materials. He built Molex from a small local business to servicing companies throughout the U.S. and 20 foreign countries. Even after retiring in 2013, Rodger continues to mentor the Molex development team, sharing his knowledge gained from many years of product design.

Keith Bennett started with Molex in 1993 after graduating from the University of Alabama in Huntsville with a BS in mechanical engineering. He became president of the company in 2006. Together with Co-owners Derek Puppa and Don Hutton, Molex continues to develop innovative product solutions based on by-products. In addition to its storage and blending facility in Texas, Molex procures material and distributes proprietary products globally.

Our chemists and engineers have many years of combined experience and knowledge about the chemical by-product industry. Molex operates with the highest standards and delivers solutions that meet our customers' needs for reliable, inexpensive products.




Whether you are in the oilfield, concrete, agricultural, asphalt or other industry, Molex is a reliable partner that offers inexpensive solutions to meet your needs. Molex supplies intermediates and finished products to customers who then sell into the end use application. Molex serves several domestic and international markets. With a long history of quality products we engineer specialty, manufactured finished goods using amines, glycols, glycol ethers, surfactants, alcohols and oleo chemicals.


Custom formulated products provide value added solutions for you and your customers. Molex is ready to work with your technical group to select, formulate and pre-screen suitable products to reduce the evaluation period and eliminate unnecessary testing. We work in partnership with our customers to gain technical understanding of their performance requirements and design products accordingly. Molex then sources economical raw materials domestically and internationally to manufacture the cooperatively invented finished goods. Our test labs in Alabama and Texas work continually to create new proprietary products using our mix of by-product chemicals.


Molex has developed a reliable network of suppliers to ensure continuity of supply to our customers. Extensive knowledge of international shipping, documentation and distribution allows Molex to provide timely shipments to our customers. By reworking chemical by-products, Molex is achieving sustainability goals for the environment.


Molex is proud to have earned its ISO 9001:2015 certification, ensuring that our products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. We reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors, and strive to maintain effective product stewardship by standardizing our processes.


Resource planning is an integral part of any business and Molex is here to help. Today’s business environment demands strict standards of quality and this is met with an on-site QA/QC lab. ACB International, our sister company strategically located near the Port of Houston, is the primary location for the storage of our products. By housing 44 tanks, we can provide over one million gallons of storage. Our fully indoor storage facility allows Molex to ship without weather delay. We also have offsite storage at five Houston area locations, which allows us to best position materials depending on proximity to our customers.

Executive Vice President 



"Molex was founded in 1985 by my father Rodger Bennett. The name is short for “molecular exchange,” and he chose it to concisely describe our company. Molex develops innovative, environmentally friendly products formulated with by-product chemicals.

Molex is now a Texas company, relocating in 2013 from our original offices in Alabama to our 65 acre site in Chambers County. Our newly built storage facility is constructed to meet rigorous modern standards for safety, health and environmental stewardship. This substantial investment highlights our commitment to Texas and the robust U.S. chemical industry.

It is a privilege to work with the outstanding team of men and women that Molex employs. I am proud of the dedication and integrity of our team, and how they professionally represent our company in the marketplace. Together we have forged strong relationships with our suppliers, customers and partners that drive our success, and we look forward to providing them with innovative business solutions in the years ahead."
