Chemical company to spend $193 million on Suffolk expansion

A Delaware-based chemical manufacturer plans to spend $193 million to expand its Suffolk location, adding 34 jobs.

Solenis, a producer of specialty chemicals for water-intensive industries, plans to build several new facilities as part of the project, Gov. Glenn Youngkin said in a Thursday announcement.

“Solenis is a global leader in the specialty chemical industry with a 40-year history in the city of Suffolk, and this major investment and expansion demonstrates that manufacturing is thriving in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” Youngkin said in the announcement.

As part of the expansion, the company plans to build an 80,000-square-foot production facility, packaging facility and tank farm as well as install a new rail spur for the production of polymer products used in paper and cardboard manufacturing.

“As demand rises for sustainable manufacturing operations, this new facility not only ensures we have capacity to supply the paper packaging market, it will also help us diversify into other applications that can drive additional growth,” Solenis CEO John Panichella said in the announcement.

Solenis manufactures specialty chemicals for clients in the food and beverage, industrial, institutional and pool and spa industries, according to its website. The company has 71 locations globally and employs more than 15,400 people.
