Dowd and Guild Inc., Terra Firma (based in Baltimore, MD) and Northspec (based in Toronto, Canada) are pleased to announce the next step in delivering a truly “bespoke” specialty chemicals distributor providing comprehensive sales coverage to the entire United States and Canada.

Dowd and Guild Inc. and Northspec have joined Terra Firma through a partnership recapitalization.  The principals of all three firms remain heavily invested through this recapitalization which allows for a true joining of forces, zero management exits, and no consolidation of offices.  In addition, the assistance of our newest financial partner, Goldner Hawn, one of the nation’s oldest private investment firms, helps us move forward stronger than ever before.  The combination of Terra Firma, Dowd and Guild Inc. and Northspec further enhances our abilities to remain intensely focused on our customers’ formulary and logistical needs; helping to drive their growth objectives and success in the marketplace.
