Marking another milestone in its brief history as a standalone company, Solenis LLC celebrated the grand opening of its new World Headquarters on April 27, 2015. Located at 3 Beaver Valley Road in Wilmington, Delaware, the headquarters will currently accommodate approximately 120 employees supporting a variety of corporate functions for the specialty chemicals company, which was previously known as Ashland Water Technologies. Space for additional expansion has been allocated.
Following the opening of its European headquarters last fall in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, the opening of the world headquarters is one more step in a series of actions that the young company has taken since it was acquired by a fund managed by private investment firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (CD&R) on August 1, 2014. In addition to the office openings, Solenis recently acquired Clearwater Specialty Chemicals in North America as well as a paper chemical business from CBC in India.
