Metal Chem is celebrating the grand opening of its new primary location in Greenville, S.C. This facility drastically expands Metal Chem’s production and R&D capacity.
On Monday, January 4, 2021, Metal Chem Inc. celebrated the grand opening of its new Greenville, S.C. facility. The new site is a relocation of the company’s primary operations and includes expanded lab space and production capacity.
Over the last 25 years, Metal Chem has developed from a regional surface preparation company to an international specialty chemical company with a focus on electroless nickel chemistries.
Metal Chem say its expansion will help it to continue to offer high-quality technical service, increase its R&D capability and better support its growing list of customers. The new facility increases Metal Chem’s production capacity by 200 percent with blending tanks up to 4,000 gallons. This enables the company to swiftly serve any customer with ready-made and custom products.
Metal Chem spent most of the expansion budget on its R&D department, increasing bench space by 400 percent while adding five new hoods and a new pilot line for process validation for its customer projects.
“Metal Chem has always been highly focused on R&D within the electroless nickel field as a means to grow with our customers,” says technical director Jordan Beavers. “Part of what makes Metal Chem special is the dedication the R&D Team puts on quickly delivering meaningful answers to existing and new customers.”
“We never want to lose focus on the customer experience, which is why we invested over $500,000 to quadruple our lab space, add instrumentation and add larger pilot capabilities,” he continues. “Adding these resources to the R&D department allows us to maintain and provide a high level of customer service now and in the future.”
For Metal Chem, developing new applications, optimizing products and customizing solutions for all its customers is an investment in the future of the company and of our industry.
