Chancellor Industries (CI) was a major design-and-engineering conglomerate, headquartered in Genoa City, Wisconsin.

Chancellor Industries was founded and ran for years by Phillip Chancellor II. Upon his death, his wife Katherine Chancellor as chair and CEO ran CI making it an international conglomerate and making her a billionaire. For years it was a privately owned company but over the years Katherine has hired various successful businessman such as Victor Newman and most recently Neil Winters as CEO. For a brief period Katherine hired Jack Abbott as CEO. It was also the parent company of Jabot Cosmetics.

The company was referred to as a sleeping giant according to former CEO Jack Abbott, CI was "financially capable and always without scandal."

It was most recently a wholly owned subsidiary of Tucker McCall Unlimited when Katherine's long lost son, billionaire business mogul Tucker McCall assumed ownership via a hostile takeover. Tucker eventually sold Katherine majority ownership of CI under pressure from Victor Newman.As of September 2013 Victor Newman is the new majority shareholder and Chairman of Chancellor Industries and he immediately plans a merger between Chancellor and Newman Enterprises. The new company is titled Newman-Chancellor Industries. In 2015, Tucker's son and Katherine's grandson Devon Hamilton loaned Jill Foster Abbott and Cane Ashby the money to purchase Chancellor Industries from Victor. His only condition on giving the money was that they had to cut out Jill's husband and Cane's father Colin Atkinson who initially tried to blackmail Devon for the money.
