Grace in China
Grace has expanded its presence and product offerings in China since 1986 when Grace China Ltd. Became the first wholly foreign-owned company to do business in the People’s Republic of China, operating a can sealants plant in Shanghai.
Currently, Grace operates six manufacturing facilities, multiple sales offices, and two technical service centers in mainland China, including its Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Shanghai, which opened in 2005. Today, the company manufactures or sells products from each of its two business segments in China.
Under Grace Catalysts Technology, in 2012 the company acquired the assets of Noblestar Catalysts Co., Ltd, located in Qingdao, to manufacture fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) catalysts and other related products for the petroleum refining industry. The facility serves customers in China and other countries in the fast-growing Asia Pacific region. Grace’s UNIPOL® Polypropylene Process Technology and Catalysts business has been serving customers in China for many years.
The Grace Materials Technology sales service center opened in 1994 in Shanghai. A technical lab opened in 2002 for coatings applications services. Shanghai is also home to a Grace packaging technical sales center and a technical service laboratory, which opened in 2006, serving customers in the pharmaceutical, paints and coatings, and personal care products industries. The company's original 1986 investment in the Shanghai Minhang Economic Development Zone continues to support the local economy and employment today.
In China, Grace community efforts historically have focused on supporting education, from elementary schools through universities. Since 2005, Grace China has provided scores of scholarships to low-income students majoring in chemistry at the East China University of Science and Technology.
Grace also has made significant contributions to causes from flood and earthquake relief to safety, the environment, and health.
Environment, Health, and Safety
The Minhang facility achieved third-party environmental and safety certifications in 2008 (ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001). In 2012, the Minhang facility was recognized by the Shanghai Institute of Work Safety for standardized safety management.
Several Grace China facilities are past recipients of the Paul J. Norris Safety Award, the company’s highest recognition of safety performance. At our manufacturing locations, we continuously improve our processes through increased recycling, waste reduction, and energy savings.
