Purolite Establishes Landenberg, Pennsylvania, Global Biologics Division

Purolite, an Ecolab company and manufacturer of high quality resins used to make life-saving drugs, will establish its first U.S. operations of its Global Biologics Division in Landenberg, Pennsylvania. The $190 million project is expected to create 170 jobs over the next five years in Chester County.

The company will manufacture health care and life science products for the global medical device, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical industries. Construction is underway and phase 1 is scheduled to be completed by the first half of 2025.

“We are proud to expand our footprint in Pennsylvania with Purolite’s first U.S.-based biologics manufacturing plant,” said Hayley Crowe, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Purolite. “Purolite’s new facility will help bring security of supply to our global pharmaceutical and biotech customers, enabling lifesaving drugs to reach patients faster.”

Purolite received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $1,037,000 Pennsylvania First grant and was encouraged to apply for the department’s Qualified Manufacturing Innovation and Reinvestment Deduction (QMIRD) program.

“Under Governor Shapiro’s leadership, Pennsylvania is aggressively competing with other states to attract and retain businesses,” noted DCED Secretary Rick Siger. “Life sciences and manufacturing are two of our major industries, and we will continue to solidify our leadership in those areas by investing in more growing businesses like Purolite. This homegrown company’s decision to anchor its U.S. Biologics Division here speaks volumes about what the Commonwealth can offer to businesses.”

Purolite, an Ecolab company, is a leading manufacturer of specialty purification resins for water, industrial, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications. The company is headquartered in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
