Norquay Plant EntranceOur Plant

Our facility, located on the waterfront in Chester, Pennsylvania, has been a site of commercial manufacturing since colonial times. Initially a manufacturing center with industries concentrating on machinery, metal manufacturing, locomotive, shipbuilding and textiles, our site became the home to the Ford Motor Company as an automobile assembly plant from 1927 to 1961. With a return to metal product manufacturing, Reynolds Metal producing wire and cable products in the 1960s and 1970s. Since 1987, Norquay has continued the long heritage of commerce in Chester - operating a chemical manufacturing facility that produces specialty materials used in many high end consumer goods from construction and household good to mobile phones, automobiles to airplanes, new currency new devices and beyond.
