ResinTech Breaks Ground On New Domestically-Produced Cation Resin Plant


ResinTech Inc., officially broke ground recently on its new global headquarters in Camden, New Jersey. The $138.8M development project includes 353,000 square feet of new construction on approximately 27 acres. The sprawling campus bounded by Federal Street and River Road is walking distance from other global brands who have made a move to Camden including American Water and Subaru of America.

ResinTech's new high-tech plant for manufacturing strong acid cation resin will be the largest facility of its kind on the East Coast and the first U.S. plant to produce ion exchange resins in over 30 years. The facility is sized to provide 550,000 cubic feet of production capacity with a planned expansion to meet the demands of the growing market.

Two new solar-powered facilities, designed by Ewing Cole Architects and constructed by Hunter Roberts, are being built to LEED Silver standards for energy efficiency and environmental design. The first building, 163,000 square feet (with planned expansion to 180,000 square feet), is dedicated to the production of ion exchange resins and activated carbons used by water purification professionals around the world. This building will also be home to the company’s cartridges & lab water systems manufacturing and a state-of-the-art research and development facility featuring a world-class laboratory. A second, 175,000 square foot building is intended for enhanced packaging and production operations.

The new headquarters will also be home to ResinTech's resin regeneration division — ACM Technologies; its filter cartridge and lab water system division — Aries FilterWorks; and its packaging partner — ActionPak, Inc. By consolidating operations presently based in MD, PA, NJ and CA, the company expects to bring 265 jobs to Camden, NJ by the time it becomes operational in June 2020. The company anticipates as many as 400 employees at this new campus upon achieving peak capacity.

“We are most excited to bring to Camden the 1st fully integrated polymer and sulfonation production plant built in North America in more than 30 years. This world class plant, when completed, will produce solvent free, environmentally friendly ion exchange resins for the purification of water for both North America and abroad," explained Jeffrey Gottlieb CEO of ResinTech Inc. “The plant will utilize state of the art production technology, highly efficient manufacturing techniques, and low cost solar energy, allowing us to compete globally and employ locally for the foreseeable future.”

ResinTech plans to move into its new headquarters in the Summer of 2020.
