PQ to invest $120 million to expand Kansas City facility

MALVERN, US: PQ Corporation, a leading producer of inorganic specialty performance chemicals and special custom catalysts, will invest $120 million to expand its manufacturing footprint at its Kansas City facility, US. PQ’s investment will expand the already extensive equipment and manufacturing capacity for PQ’s silica catalyst business and its Zeolyst International specialty catalyst operation. The expansion at its Kansas Avenue site is projected to add 40 to 50 additional new jobs.

“The new capacity will help PQ meet the growing demand for specialty catalysts throughout the world. We believe this investment demonstrates our strong commitment to the state of Kansas, Wyandotte County and the Kansas City local community and builds on the past success of our Kansas City plant and our highly motivated and productive team of employees,” said Mike Boyce, Chairman and CEO, PQ Corp.
