Gelest Doubles Capacity at Morrisville, PA Plant

September 11, 2008

Gelest Inc., a Morrisville, PA-based manufacturer and supplier of specialty organosilicon and other group IV organometallics, has completed the final phase of a multi-year project to double the capacity of its Morrisville, PA headquarters and production plant.

Gelest started the project to meet growing world demand for specialty silane and metal organic molecules used in a variety of applications. In addition, the expansion allows Gelest to produce a wider range of products at larger volumes along with its new state-of-the-art surface treatment operation that will target the modification of micro-particles.

“The plant expansion effectively more than doubles reactor capacity and adds new capability in ultra high viscosity polymerization and micro-particle surface modification. The expansion increases the physical size of the plant to 55,000-sq.-ft. and the facility now fully occupies seven acres on the 21-acre site, leaving space for additional future expansion,” said Matt Edison, silicones business manager and project manager of the expansion.
