Marinette, WI – ChemDesign is pleased to announce the completion of its new technology center. This facility was developed and built by Keller Inc., a construction company with eighty years of experience in project management and building corporate offices. The construction was complete in the fall of 2020. The 25,000 sq. ft. facility houses multiple functional areas and will serve as the centerpiece and communication hub for the company. This new addition to the original ChemDesign manufacturing site reinforces its mission to provide excellence in the tolling industry.

ChemDesign’s technology center houses several functional offices, engineering offices, laboratories, and support staff offices. The campus also includes locker rooms for chemical operators, training rooms, and a lunchroom. The industry-leading design standards made way for the most efficient use of space. The facility is designed with an open plan and has room for fifty administrative employees and visiting contractors. The improved workplace environment will help in attracting and maintaining top-quality talent. The new labs feature state-of-the-art equipment with advanced safety features for ChemDesign’s process support chemists and quality control analysts. With all the departments in one building, it will strengthen company culture and promote collaboration that goes into leading-quality toll manufacturing.
