YORK, S.C.—Bluestar Silicones USA Corp. continues to expand both its manufacturing capabilities and its product portfolio.
The firm is getting ready to add new bulk tankers and some additional reactors at its 260,000-sq-ft. York facility in the coming months. The firm currently operates three tankers at the site. Christopher York, Bluestar's North American president, said the number of tankers and reactors still is being determined, but the expansion will increase its bulk handling capacity by an estimated 300 percent.
The firm also secured additional land surrounding the site for future projects.
Financial details were not disclosed. The firm has 160 employees in the U.S. and has added about 35 since the York facility opened in June 2012.
