Expanded Rinchem Campus Provides High-Demand Chemical Services to Semiconductor, Other Growth Sectors

by Mike Hunter

Graycor Construction Company has initiated construction on a new, 123,516-square-foot flex industrial facility in Surprise, Arizona, for Rinchem Company LLC, the world’s largest network of chemical and gas distribution centers. The new facility will be Rinchem’s third in metro Phoenix and part of a global Rinchem supply chain that safely handles more than 4 billion pounds of chemicals and gasses each year.

“Expanding Rinchem’s footprint in Arizona awards us the ability to continue to position ourselves to support both the chemical and semiconductor manufacturers’ expansions,” says Matt Jensen, Rinchem’s vice president of warehousing operations. “Rinchem is proud to partner with Graycor to help us build another Arizona warehouse optimized for safety and efficiency in accordance with our global standards.”

Located on 21 acres at the northwest corner Dysart and Summit Parkway, the new Class A facility will include highly specialized warehouse space, administrative offices, shipping/receiving capabilities and an 11-truck loading dock. The main building will offer high bay and freezer bay chemical storage, as well as super flat concrete floors. Six individual pads will allow for maximum chemical containment, to include an outdoor bottled gas pad and detached ISO tank storage that maintain Rinchem’s commitment to proper segregation of hazard classes in multiple temperature zones.

For the new Surprise facility, Graycor serves as the general contractor, providing both shell and interior build-out services. Phoenix-based Archicon Architecture + Interiors LC is the project’s architect. The facility is now under construction, with completion anticipated during the fourth quarter of 2023.
