During the 1950s, the product range expanded to include chemical products for building maintenance. The manufacture of floor sealers, polishers and waxes for hard floors became a major objective of the AGDC. The company has made many advances in introducing improved methods for floor maintenance, expanding recently to a range that includes soft flooring and carpet care.
The AGDC made a significant contribution to the formation of the first chemical trade organisation – the Association of Sanitation Chemical Manufacturers. Today, Whiteley Corporation continues to support the Australian Chemical Speciality Manufacturers Association and its affiliated activities.
