CHRYSO & GCP Achieve Key Milestones
June 29, 2023 – CHRYSO & GCP (Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals), a worldwide leader in sustainable construction, is proud to announce significant projects across North America to optimize services and extend production capabilities to new regions for its customers.
In the 10 months since GCP Applied Technologies joined CHRYSO within Saint-Gobain to form the new Construction Chemicals division, the focus has been on customer continuity. During that time, the company maintained consistent services, personnel, and products.
“We continue to be focused on being a leader connected to our customers,” said Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals North America President Steve Williams. “Responsiveness is critical in our industry. By combining our two businesses, we can leverage the best local teams to provide hands-on service, improve lead times and optimize our overall services. I am proud to announce that we have invested in multiple Capex projects across North America to further strengthen our customer-centric focus, helping our customers grow their business.”
To deliver the newly combined product solution portfolio to regions of North America where they are needed the most, the integration of manufacturing both CHRYSO and GCP products is underway. The first completion is the company’s Royse City, Texas plant, which now manufactures both legacy companies’ products. Other North American plants will soon also be converting to dual manufacturing capabilities.
As part of Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals’ technical focus, the company is extending its application lab network in the United States and Canada. Later this summer, the opening of a new lab will be announced. The expanded lab network will provide additional local testing capabilities for troubleshooting and product recommendations.
“The integration of CHRYSO and GCP offers more than 200 years of combined experience
in innovation and technical services,” said Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals North America Technical Service Director Terry Harris. “From my days at GCP, to now leading the Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals concrete Technical Service team, innovation continues to be our core. Earlier this year, we introduced EnviroMix® SE, a new strength enhancer that reduces concrete embodied carbon. It is the first co-developed solution from CHRYSO and GCP, and greatly illustrates how both companies are stronger together.”
With a continued focus on performance and sustainability goals, Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals has been introducing other innovative product solutions designed to reduce the cement and concrete CO2 footprint, as well as enhance the circular economy. The combined CHRYSO and GCP companies have launched an extensive customer and employee consultation project on the future company brand.
