NRS Logistics America Plans Casa Grande, Arizona, Distribution-Storage Facility

08/08/2023
NRS Logistics America, a leading chemical-logistics company providing transport, storage and distribution, and asset leasing services for the chemical and industrial markets, plans to establish a semiconductor chemical and gas products distribution and storage facility in Casa Grande, Arizona. The project is expected to create 90 jobs.

Located on 40 acres at the southwest corner of Ethington and Illinois roads the investment will include 69,000-square-feet, which will serve semiconductor and electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturers and suppliers, and industrial chemical markets. Operations are scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2024.

“With the growing markets in semiconductor manufacturing and EV battery manufacturing, NRS evaluated several other states for our first North American investment,” said Yuichi Sato, President, NRS Logistics America. “Arizona was the best fit for NRS’ expansion, providing proximity to the customer base, port operations in southern California, and excellent value for land investment. The City of Casa Grande has also seen additional growth with several chemical suppliers and was a great fit for NRS to align with the other manufacturers in the area to offer our storage and transportation services.”

NRS provides chemical and gas logistic services to companies seeking safe and reliable handling of their international supply chain needs. NRS Corporation has been a leading chemical-logistics company in providing transport, storage & distribution, and asset leasing and selling for the chemical and industrial markets.

“We are excited NRS Logistics has selected Casa Grande for its first U.S. semiconductor chemical distribution facility,” noted Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA). “As a global chemical logistics leader, NRS Logistics expands Arizona’s semiconductor supply chain and supports Casa Grande’s growing semiconductor ecosystem.”

"Now home to the first NRS distribution facility in North America, Casa Grande continues its momentum as a notable location for semiconductor players,” added Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “We’re excited to see the growth of the semiconductor and electric vehicle spaces across the region with NRS incorporated into the ecosystem."
