Gelest, Inc. continues to strengthen its position as a leading innovator, manufacturer and supplier of commercial and research scale organosilicon compounds, metal-organic compounds and silicones to the global marketplace. It has extended its reach into Europe through the acquisition of a warehouse and logistics center located in Industriepark Griesheim, Frankfurt/Main Germany.

Just a few minutes from Frankfurt International Airport and centrally located within the European market, Gelest is poised to support research and bulk materials quickly and cost effectively for all European customers within a similar time-zone.

• Import and export handling/customs clearance
• Dangerous goods management for road, air and sea transport
• REACH registration
• Sample handling and shipments
