Wilmington, Delaware/USA – Following the opening of its European headquarters last fall in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, the opening of the world headquarters in Wilmington 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 in August 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.

"It has been an exceptionally busy time as we continue to build this business inside and out,” stated John Panichella, president and CEO. "The new headquarters will further enhance the Solenis corporate identity and culture that we are working hard to develop around the world. As we continue to build and strengthen our organization, we will continue to rely on our proven leadership, industry expertise and market-focused research and development to lead the industry in analyzing and solving water and process challenges and support our customers with innovative products and services, just as we have in the past.” Solenis’ Wilmington Research Center will remain at its current location in Wilmington.
