Waters Corporation has announced that its newly built Precision Chemical Manufacturing Facility in Taunton, Mass. has achieved LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. The products manufactured at this facility are essential for thousands of laboratories that ensure the quality and safety of medicines, food and water for millions of people worldwide.
Designated by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), Waters’ Taunton site is the first and only LEED-certified chemical manufacturing facility in Massachusetts and among a small number of LEED-certified industrial manufacturing projects in the US. The site nearly triples Waters’ manufacturing footprint, has already created 25 new jobs and provides growth capacity for years to come.
To meet increased customer demand, achieve greater levels of operational efficiency, and continue its commitment to grow sustainably, Waters invested more than $215 million since 2018 to build this state-of-the-art facility as a manufacturing Center of Excellence.
At this facility, Waters manufactures chromatographic particles which are the backbone of its Chemistry consumables business and are responsible for more than $300 million in recurring annual revenue. More specifically, it synthesizes chromatographic media used by thousands of analytical laboratories around the world to support the research, development and manufacture of pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, materials, foods, and to support clinical diagnostics and biomedical research.
