Chuck Walker, Chemlink Laboratories
Chuck Walker is the Founder and Chairman of Chemlink Laboratories. For over 25 years, Chemlink has been a leader and innovator in tablet technology.

In 2015, the company participates in the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Safer Choice program, an initiative that helps consumers, businesses and institutional buyers identify products which perform well, are safer to use and are cost-effective.
