Carus was founded in 1915 by Dr. Edward Hegeler Carus, who first produced permanganate while at the University of Wisconsin. When World War I in Europe threatened supplies of potassium permanganate in the United States, Carus saw an opportunity. Today, Carus Corporation’s President and CEO, Inga Carus represents the third generation of the Carus family to manage the corporation.
During its more than 90-year history, Carus’ ongoing reliance on research and development, as well as its emphasis on technical support and customer service has enabled the company to become the world leader in permanganate, manganese, oxidation, catalyst and blended phosphate technologies.
Today Carus Corporation manufactures a range of products for the municipal and industrial markets with a majority used in environmental applications. Products include CAIROX® and AQUOX® potassium permanganates, RemOx® ISCO reagents, CARULITE® catalysts, AQUA MAG® blended phosphates, CARUSOL® liquid permanganate and LIQUOX® sodium permanganate.
Carus Corporation has expanded from its single location in LaSalle, Illinois, USA, to become a global corporation with locations in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Carus plans to further expand as we look for new opportunities to develop new and unique products for the environmental markets.
