The facility will support the company'a goal of being climate, land and people positive by 2030.

Construction is underway for Croda International's North American Headquarters and Innovation Centre, scheduled for completion before the end of 2020.

The facility's location is designed with sustainability as a top focus and will bring together commercial and technical teams from across its business areas.

Strategically located mid-way between New York City and Philadelphia in Princeton NJ, the new location is designed to be a highly collaborative space, focused on sustainable innovation and meeting the needs of both the local and global marketplace.

It will feature an almost 11,000 sq. ft, state-of-the-art laboratory space, dedicated to serving Croda’s major markets through the delivery of new technologies, as well as customer technical support.

A 2,960 sq. ft customer experience centre will allow the company to provide customers with both on-site training and real time collaboration with Croda’s technical experts.

David Shannon, Senior Vice President of Croda said: “With our new capabilities and assets in the new facility, our goal is to use this space to provide our customers the necessary tools to meet their business objectives.”

Croda has committed to being the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients, by creating, making and delivering solutions to tackle some of the world's biggest challenges. The facility will support Croda’s goal of being climate, land and people positive by 2030, using renewable energy to target zero carbon emissions and developing new natural ingredients to reduce pollution, make land use more efficient, and promote health and wellbeing across society.

“It is our vision that this new environment, with innovation and sustainability at the core, will spark new ideas and push the boundaries of our thinking to deliver a positive difference to our customers, the environment and to society, delivering our purpose of providing ‘Smart Science to Improve Lives," explained Shannon.”
