Electronic Fluorocarbons is expanding both its facilities and its workforce at its new Hatfield site in Pennsylvania, with the addition of a 32,000-square-foot extension to the existing production plant.

The manufacturing and purification facility is set on 15 acres in Hatfield Township, Pennsylvania and has been home to the company since late 2016, when the company moved from its former site in Ivyland (PA).

With an R&D centre, bulk capabilities and strategic customer staging, the Hatfield Township centre enables Electronic Fluorocarbons to research purification methodologies that exceed currently accepted standards in the semiconductor industry while continuing to supply high quality, cost-competitive materials in a safe and responsible manner and allowing the company’s expansion into electronic specialty gas and advanced materials markets.

Electronic Fluorcarbons – Driving new materials

The new expansion to the site – scheduled for completion in early 2019 – will be utilised for new purification/distillation and fill lines to facilitate the growth of existing products.

New reactors and purification modules will be included in a new R&D laboratory to accommodate the development and scale up of new products.

Pavel Perlov, Founder and CEO of Electronic Fluorocarbons, identifies the value of R&D to the overall customer experience, “We are very excited of moving the business along a path of new product development and introduction for our customers. This will give them the ability to have access to the latest technology and chemistries that will enable them to develop new processes.”

According to Thomas Arndt, Director of Operations, “Since 2013, the company has experienced substantial growth. The new facility will give Electronic Fluorocarbons room to grow existing product lines, develop exciting products that enable our customer’s latest technologies and improve efficiency.”

Electronic Fluorocarbons offers the latest technology in purification and analysis of specialty and rare gases, including refrigerants, halocarbons, and hydrocarbons, with purities up to 99.999% in a variety of cylinder sizes.
