The Arizona Chemical company has broken ground on a $10 million Science & Technology Center in Savannah, GA. The new 27,000 square foot facility will replace the existing Savannah location.

“This is an exciting day for us,” said Carl Bilgrien, Vice President. “As a company, we are committed to a Vision of being a global leader in innovative, sustainable chemical solutions, and our newest S&T Center in Savannah will provide us with the resources to achieve that Vision.”

Arizona Chemical currently employs more than 200 in the Savannah area with a large refinery. The addition of the Science & Technology Center will mean 10-20 new scientists and chemists. The average salary for these positions will be $80,000.

According to the company website, Arizona Chemical is a world leader of bio-refined products for the adhesives, roads & construction, tires, lubricants, fuel additives, mining and oleochemicals markets. With more than 1,000 employees and state-of-the-art refineries in six countries on both sides of the Atlantic, Arizona Chemical provides sustainable raw materials to hundreds of companies and, in-turn, to millions of consumers all around the world. The company has headquarters offices in the U.S. in Jacksonville, Fla., and in the EU in Almere, the Netherlands.

All volunteers receive training, free parking and a catered meal provided by C. Parks Catering.
