has moved its corporate headquarters from Dalton, Georgia to Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Company growth created the need for more workspace.
"MFG Chemical has outgrown its original headquarters in Dalton, Georgia," said Paul Turgeon, MFG Chemical president and CEO. "The company began its operations in Dalton in 1980, with a focus on specialty chemicals for the carpet/textile industry.
"MFG subsequently diversified into many other markets including agriculture, asphalt, fuel additives, graphic arts, hand sanitizer thickeners, lubricants, mining, oilfield, paints & coatings, personal care, pulp & paper and water treatment," he continued. "This growth led to the eventual purchase of a 26.7 acre plant in Pasadena, Texas in 2017, additional employees, and now the need for more workspace. Our executive, finance, HR, and sales staff will relocate to the new headquarters.
"Our three Georgia manufacturing plants, including R & D, customer service and EHS&S will continue their current operations in Dalton, which is only 25 miles from Chattanooga, so we are still close to operations," he concluded.
The new MFG Chemical headquarters is located in downtown Chattanooga’s Liberty Tower.
MFG Chemical’s three Dalton, GA plants were recently recertified ISO 9001: 2015, and are undergoing a multi-million dollar upgrade program that will vastly improve product quality, pollution control and plant capacity.
