PeroxyChem workers review plans for their facility layout.

As the world’s largest and only North American producer of persulfates, demand continues to change at the Tonawanda plant of PeroxyChem. The rise of more specialty and environmental applications required upgrading the congested packaging and storage areas, and improving ergonomics and equipment reliability. With an eye on adequately serving the market, PeroxyChem leveraged UB’s engineering expertise through TCIE and a Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR) grant to attack the bottleneck.
