  12/6/2018 - Exton, PA - Sartomer, a business unit of Arkema Inc., celebrated the 50th anniversary of its West Chester, PA, production plant, and received recognition from State Senator Andrew Dinniman. Sartomer’s West Chester production facility produces specialty chemical building blocks used by other manufacturers for advanced materials, chemical intermediates, personal care and 3D printing applications. The production facility offers its customers access to global technology, manufacturing and service, which leads to innovative solutions, a dependable supply and consistently high-quality products and services. While presenting a certificate recognizing the 50th anniversary, Senator Dinniman commented, “Sartomer is a great example of a company that has been enterprising in adapting to meet the needs of the new economy. In addition, Sartomer and its employees continue to celebrate their roots in our region by giving back to the community through volunteerism and other charitable endeavors. I wish them a happy 50th birthday, and best wishes for another half-century of success, growth and innovation.” “We are honored to receive recognition from Senator Dinniman for our high standard of service to our customers and contribution to the local community,” said Kenny Messer, president of Sartomer Americas. “We look forward to building on this half-century foundation as we continue to support our customers’ evolving needs and work as a dedicated corporate neighbor in our region.” A member of the West Chester Chamber of Commerce, Sartomer’s West Chester production facility provides technical expertise to the West Chester Local Emergency Planning Committee, offers a shadowing program for high school students, and partners with Drexel University for a cooperative program. The facility also provides an annual scholarship to a West Chester University student and sponsors teachers from local schools to team with Sartomer mentors to review science experiments. Through work with the West Chester Community Action Panel, management from the site regularly meets with representatives of the local community to review Sartomer’s support to Chester County and address any local questions or concerns. Employees of Sartomer strongly support the surrounding community year-round by engaging in charitable community projects with organizations such as Chester County Food Cupboard, Chester County Hospital, Habitat for Humanity, CRC Watershed Association, Doing Our Part Eclectically (DOPE), and the United Way.
