Chemicals

A Catalyst for Success in the Chemical Industry

Chemistry is at the heart of every product and nearly every process in today’s business world, and the chemical industry is creating new opportunities for that world. The Aiken, Edgefield, and Saluda region is actively supporting those efforts through extensive resources and a workforce that understands the unique challenges of the chemical industry, which is why companies like Allnex see us as a key factor in their success.

Our right-to-work state’s workforce has the skills (and the attitude) that companies developing and manufacturing coatings, resins, additives, and other compounds need to meet their objectives. Our extensive transportation network provides easy access to raw materials (including oil-based materials through nearby ports and the Gulf), along with rail and road connections for fast distribution to markets throughout North America and beyond. Our area’s wastewater treatment facility has more than 4 million gallons per day of excess capacity and can be easily expanded to accommodate a greater need. When it comes to water, we can meet your needs.
