MORRISVILLE, PA – Gelest Inc., Morrisville, PA, has extended its reach into Europe through the acquisition of a warehouse and logistics center located in Industriepark Griesheim, Frankfurt, Germany.

The expansion is in response to the increased demand for Gelest silanes and metal-organics in the pharmaceutical and diagnostic markets. Gelest also sees significant opportunities for silicone products in the specialty coatings and instrumentation markets. For the first time, Gelest will begin offering research quantities of its specialty materials directly throughout Europe. 

The facility meets all European legal requirements. Its capabilities include catalog and bulk sales; import and export handling/customs clearance; dangerous goods management for road, air and sea transport; REACH registration; sample handling and shipments; and service center and E-commerce order processing.
