Albemarle Corporation has announced that it is relocating its corporate headquarters and its Performance Chemicals business to Charlotte, North Carolina, US. Approximately 120 employees will be relocated, with the majority of the move taking place in June 2016.
The company will also relocate its Refining Solutions business to its existing Clear Lake, Texas office.
Luke Kissam, Albemarle’s President and CEO, said: “As we look at the ever-increasing demands for communication, collaboration and mobility for our employees and our customers, Charlotte is the best strategic location to base the new Albemarle. Located approximately 35 miles from our state-of-the-art lithium facility in Kings Mountain, metropolitan Charlotte provides easy and fast connectivity with customers and colleagues, fostering a collaborative environment and culture for our team. We look forward to expanding our presence in North Carolina becoming an even more significant partner in the communities where we live and operate."
