With more than 135 years of process and engineering experience, Pulcra Chemicals specializes in providing high-performance products and system solutions for increasing the productivity and environmental compatibility of complex manufacturing
processes in the fiber, textile and leather industries.
"Pulcra Chemicals is very pleased with our decision to locate our business in Rock Hill, South Carolina. We thank the city of Rock Hill, York County and the State of South Carolina for their support and we look forward to our next phase of growth, said Brian Francois, President of Pulcra Chemicals .
"South Carolina has one of the fastest-growing economies
in the United States, and it is thanks to not only new companies being recruited, but also companies like Pulcra Chemicals who come to South Carolina and continue to invest time and time again,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
"Pulcra, a worldwide leader in textile technology and performance chemicals, is a model for innovation and customer specialization. First coming to York County in 2010, this expansion announcement proves we are able to compete on a global scale for new and expanding industry investment and well-paying jobs. While we enthusiastically welcome new companies to our area, it is especially validating to have an existing industry once again commit jobs and capital to York County,” Dr. Britt Blackwell, York County Council chairman said.
