Founded in 2010 by a group of industry veterans, Xenon arc was created to redefine distribution by transforming the way specialty chemical and food ingredient producers go to market. Since then, Xenon arc has grown to 150 employees across 4 global offices servicing North America, Europe, South America and Mexico.

Xenon arc builds branded channels to market on behalf of specialty chemical and food ingredient producers. Rather than choose between your direct customer relationships or migrating them to distribution, we give you the best of both options. Our model consists of a branded commercial team, a branded eCommerce site, and lead management, with full distribution services.

We fill a critical gap in your channel strategy and enable you to maintain and grow your relationship with traditionally difficult to serve customers, while off-loading the operational complexity and cost of servicing those customers.

Welcome to your branded channel to market.


We have established strategic relationships with key leaders across multiple sectors within the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry, playing a critical role in their channel and go-to-market strategies. We drive targeted growth among traditionally difficult-to-serve customer segments.
