AdvanceTEC Completes Design/Build of “Clean” Chemical Lab for EMD Performance Materials

Repeat client receives high performance lab turned over ahead of schedule

Richmond, VA, February 2, 2017 – AdvanceTEC, a leader in cleanroom engineering, design, construction and process integration, today announced that it has completed the design/build of EMD Performance Materials’ advanced chemical lab in Branchburg, New Jersey. EMD (formerly AZ Electronic Materials), a business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, will use the facility for nanoscale materials research sciences for solutions in photo-resist and other high precision materials applications.

The completion of the latest “clean” lab for EMD marks the latest in a string of successful projects for the two companies. The strong, collaborative relationship developed through these projects was key to the completion of the Branchburg chemical lab on budget and ahead of schedule.

“At AdvanceTEC, we believe successful projects come from successful relationships with our clients – and EMD Performance Materials is a perfect example,” commented Bryan Phelan, AdvanceTEC managing partner and director of sales, marketing and preconstruction services. “Over multiple projects and years, we have listened and learned what is important to EMD. Through our performance and execution, we have established mutual respect between our project teams, which is the bedrock of our successful projects together. We know that safety, budget, schedule and performance are all critically important – but at the end of the day if you have not also earned each other’s respect, what have you really accomplished? We look forward to competing for the next project and delivering yet again for EMD.”
