Welcome to Grace Lake Charles

Grace's Lake Charles facility is one of the largest refining catalyst plants in the world. It represents approximately half of Grace's catalyst manufacturing capacity and supplies a significant portion of the world's catalyst market. In addition to U.S. destinations, production is shipped to locations in Europe, Southeast Asia and South America.

The site consists of five major production areas: sodium silicate, additive plants, alumina plant, fluid cracking catalysts and hydroprocessing catalysts..

The original facility was completed in 1953 when it began to provide the Gulf Coast area with manufacturing capacity for synthetic fluid cracking catalysts. The Lake Charles area was selected because of its central location in the Gulf Coast, between the two large refining centers of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Houston, Texas. Lake Charles was also considered ideal because many of the raw materials required were locally available, along with transportation by water, rail, highway and air.

Recognizing the importance of our employees and their contributions to the company's past and future success, the Lake Charles Plant is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for our employees, contractors and visitors.
