Sterling becomes ERCO and revives its roots. (News Briefs/Nouvelles en Bref).
The original ERCO was started by W.T. Gibbs in Buckingham, QC after he recognized the combined potential of ore deposits, electric power, and electrochemistry for producing chemicals such as phosphorous.
The pulp chemicals section of the original ERCO was sold to Sterling Pulp Chemicals in 1992. The ERCO name continued in relation to technology sales. In 2003, ERCO resurfaces as a recognized name in the chemical industry and as a member of the Canadian Chemical Producers' Association.
