Saratoga attracts chemical company

Saratoga Springs has chemically attracted a hydrogen peroxide company to the city.  

PeroxyChem, a global leader in peroxygen and adjacent chemistries, has plans to construct a $23 million hydrogen peroxide purification facility at the W.J. Grande Industrial Park in Saratoga Springs.

PeroxyChem supplies customized chemistries for electronics, energy, environmental, food safety, pulp, paper, polymer and other industrial and consumer markets.

The proposed local facility would be constructed to meet growing market demand for ultra-high purity hydrogen peroxide for use in semiconductor manufacturing.

In fall of 2013, an application for the proposed facility was submitted to the Saratoga Springs Planning Board. After review, the board approved the project in January 2014.

PeroxyChem is currently in the process of working with the Saratoga County Industrial Development Agency. Once final approvals have been reached, a construction timeline will be established.

PeroxyChem said it plans to build the facility in Saratoga Springs where the proximity to area industry and existing infrastructure will enable the safe, efficient transport and storage of the product.

The new location would also allow PeroxyChem to better serve nearby customers across New York state and along the Northeast corridor.

the company said that adding this complementary facility, with the ability to manufacture a
critical specialty chemical component to Saratoga County industry, will be an important addition to the region’s business community.

Headquartered in Philadelphia, the company employs approximately 600 people worldwide, with facilities in North America, Europe and Asia.
