Gulf Resources Inc manufactures and trades bromine and crude salt, and manufactures and sells chemical products used in oil and gas field exploration, oil and gas distribution, oil field drilling, wastewater processing, papermaking chemical agents.

Gulf Resources Inc was incorporated in Delaware on February 28, 1989. The Company, together with its subsidiaries, manufactures and trades bromine and crude salt, and manufactures and sells chemical products used in oil and gas field exploration, oil and gas distribution, oil field drilling, wastewater processing, papermaking chemical agents and inorganic chemicals. Its business operations are conducted in three segments; bromine, crude salt, and chemical products. It manufactures and distributes bromine through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Shouguang City Haoyuan Chemical Company Limited, or SCHC. Bromine (Br2) is a halogen element and it is a red volatile liquid at standard room temperature which has reactivity between chlorine and iodine. Elemental bromine is used to manufacture a variety of bromine compounds used in industry and agriculture. Bromine is also used to form intermediates in organic synthesis, in which it is somewhat preferable over iodine due to its lower cost. Its bromine is commonly used in brominated flame retardants, fumigants, water purification compounds, dyes, medicines and disinfectants. It also produces crude salt, which is produced from the evaporation of the wastewater after its bromine production process. Once the brine is returned to the surface and the bromine is removed, the remaining brine is pumped to on-site containing pools and then exposed to natural sunshine. This causes the water to evaporate from the brine, resulting in salt being left over afterwards. Crude salt is the material in alkali production as well as chlorine alkali production and is widely used in the chemical, food and beverage, and other industries. It produces chemical products through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Shouguang Yuxin Chemical Industry Company Limited. The Company has an in-house sales staff of 8 persons. Its customers send their orders to the Company first. Its in-house sales staff then attempts to satisfy these orders based on its actual production schedules and inventories on hand. The Company's suppliers are Shandong Xinlong Biological Technology Company limited, Shouguang City Rongguang Trading Company Limited and Shandong Xinlong Group Company limited, Shandong Haihua Chlorine & Alkali Colophony Chemicals Company Limited, Shouguang Hongye Trading Company Limited. The Company competes with Shandong Yuyuan Group Company Limited, Shandong Haihua Group Company Limited, Shandong Dadi Salt Chemical Group Company Limited and Shandong Haiwang Chemical Company Limited, Shandong Haiwang Chemical Company Limited, Shandong Haihua Group Company Limited, Shandong Weifang Longwei Industrial Company Limited, Shandong Yuyuan Group Company Limited and Shandong Caiyangzi Saltworks, Beijing Tianqing Chemical Company Limited, Shandong Weifang Shuangxing Pesticides Company Limited, Zibo Dacheng Pesticides Company Limited, Befar Group Company Limited, China Eastar (Group) Chemical Industry Company Limited and Pecome Technologies Lim
