Alfa Aesar, a Johnson Matthey company, has opened a new 36,000-square-foot bulk storage and handling facility adjacent to its existing distribution center in Ward Hill, Mass. The new plant provides a significant increase in capacity to hold inventory of fine chemicals and materials for bulk and specialty sales customers, and for the company's growing catalog business. The new building is equipped for the storage, handling and rapid dispatch of semi-bulk and bulk materials. It is divided into numerous hazardous material storage areas, each of which is outfitted with state-of-the-art monitoring, suppression and containment systems. Operational capability in the new building is enhanced by significant cold storage and a high-capacity hot box.
