National Starch was established in 1895 by a 25-year-old New Yorker, Alexander Alexander. Responding to an advertisement in a local newspaper for a business for sale at 11th Avenue and 45th Street in Manhattan, he purchased the National Gum and Mica Company for $1,200. In 1908 National Starch was acquired by Corn Products Refining Company.
