Orangeburg, South Carolina

The Orangeburg Plant is a fully commercial specialty chemical facility serving markets and customers for Albemarle's Catalyst Solutions and Performance Chemicals divisions, while employing more than 330 people. 

The facility’s supply chain and production scale ranges from an API delivered in 5-gallon bottles to rail car quantities of raw materials and products. The site has strategic access to warehousing and shipping from the United States’ fourth largest container port in Charleston, South Carolina, just 80 miles from the plant.

Albemarle’s Orangeburg Plant has been manufacturing Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) for over 25 years. This experience makes the site well versed in current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
