Grace Lake Charles

Welcome to Grace Lake Charles


Grace's Lake Charles facility  is the largest refining catalyst plant 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 four major production areas: sodium silicate, additive plants, fluid cracking catalysts and hydroprocessing catalysts.

In 2010, Grace expanded the plant, enabling increased production of specialty aluminas, a key raw material in fluid cracking and hydroprocessing catalysts used by oil refineries to produce transportation fuels.

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 provide a safe and healthy working environment for our employees, contractors and visitors.

In The Community

The words "Engage – Educate – Empower" are at the root of our community stewardship programs. The Lake Charles facility participates in the Lake Area Industry Alliance (LAIA) and a local Community Advisory Panel as part of Grace's Responsible Care® program.

The onsite "Amazing Grace" volunteer team supplies manpower to various community organizations. Big Brothers/Big Sisters Bowl for Kid's Sake, Special Olympics and LAIA Chem Expo are just a few of their annual events. Grace is a long-time sponsor of the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. Employees also serve on boards of organizations, coach youth activities and volunteer at local agencies.

The United Way of Southwest Louisiana has been a recipient of significant contributions by the Grace Foundation.
