How it all started…

T. Vanderbilt Company opened its doors for business on 42nd Street in New York City in 1916. It was started by a 31-year-old named Robert Thurlow Vanderbilt who had $1,000 of his own, a $24,000 family loan, and a contract to sell clay for a company in the South. Since the paper industry was a prime market for clay, it was here that Robert Vanderbilt saw his Company begin to grow.

And so the Company has grown from year to year until today they sell more than sixty categories of minerals and chemicals, made up of over 800 products, to twelve different industries. Their customers include some of the most visible and popular global brands that have become part of our everyday life.

Vanderbilt Minerals, LLC provides a full array of minerals, clays and chemicals for use in Life Sciences including markets such as global Personal Care, Pharmaceutical and HI&I applications, amongst others. Their range of products for personal care formulations are both extensive and practical and provide overall versatility, stability, and rheology control for your formulations.
