About Norquay


Advancing Technology, Fostering Innovation, Driving Growth

Focused on Operational Excellence, our combined strength in both Chemical Engineering and Chemistry ensures the safe, reliable, and quality manufacturing of hard to source molecules. We partner with our customers to develop commercial manufacturing processes from the laboratory and kilogram scale to full commercial production to ensure a consistent supply of the materials to meet the needs of our customers.

What We Do

We specialize in the production of advanced materials including highly air and moisture sensitive organometallic, inorganic and organic molecules for use as Advanced Precursors, Catalyst & Ligand Products, Chromic Materials, Performance Materials, and Medical Adhesives. Learn about the advanced materials we make.

Who We Are

We are a team of world class chemists and chemical engineers with a diverse array of core competencies and expertise. Our employees hold B.S. and Ph. D. degrees in chemistry, chemical engineering, organic chemistry, organometallic chemistry, and more from the country's most prestigious universities -- and they've held leadership positions at some of the top players in the industry. Meet our leadership team.

Where We Operate

We are located in a chemical friendly, heavy-industrial manufacturing zone along the Delaware river in Chester, PA between Philadelphia, PA and Wilmington, DE. Our site has been the focus of commerce starting from ship building in Colonial times -- Ford Motor Company once manufactured automobiles on our site. Learn more about our plant.

Why We Succeed

We look forward to facing the complex challenges and new initiatives that our clients and partners bring to us each day. Our chemists tackle the synthesis and manufacturing challenges that many in the industry will not. Why? -- because we believe in doing our part to advance the future of technology wherever we can. Our expertise spans multiple areas.

The differences between synthesizing a few grams and a few kilograms of advanced materials are extreme - but our team has refined and perfected the process of scaling up and down production without sacrificing quality, efficiency or safety. Discover the Norquay advantage.
