Who We Are

Our Roots

In 1908, Harvey N. Dauler was employed by Gulf Oil Corporation, selling oil and gasoline to garages and repair shops. His idea to establish curbside gasoline stations, selling directly to motorists, was rejected. Dauler resigned and opened what is generally accepted to be the world's first service station on Bigelow Boulevard in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Five years later, Dauler sold his gas station to none other than Gulf Oil.

In 1925
, Harvey Dauler, Edwin Hodge, Jr. and William S. Gardiner incorporated Neville Chemical Company to manufacture coumarone-indene resins and solvents from coke by-products generated by the steel industry. Neville's coumarone-indene resin plant was constructed on Neville Island in 1927, the second such facility in the western hemisphere.  The resins found immediate use in floor tile, protective coatings and molded rubber.

During World War II, Neville was called upon to produce numerous specialty chemicals for the military, such as binders for smokeless powder, anti-flash components for naval shells and over 100 other different products.

In 1948, Neville introduced its first petroleum hydrocarbon resin that not only exhibited excellent formulation properties, but was also available at a lower cost.

Today, Neville Chemical Company is one of the world’s most highly respected hydrocarbon resin producers, known for its innovative research, high quality products, exceptional customer service, and competitive pricing.  Its products enhance the performance characteristics of manufactured goods such as coatings, adhesives, ink, roofing, and rubber.
