General view of the Virginia State Chamber of Commerce exhibition display celebrating Chemical Progress Week. The display includes photographs from the Hercules Powder Company facility in Hopewell, Virginia alongside samples of products "made better because of chemistry."
Formed in 1912 as part of an anti-trust settlement with DuPont, the Hercules Powder Company (later Hercules Inc.) initially specialized in the manufacture of explosives and smokeless powders and subsequently diversified its business to encompass a variety of industrial products, including pine and paper chemicals, synthetics, pigments, polymers, and cellulose.
