Surprise Graycor-Rinchem campus supports semiconductor market


Rinchem announces the grand opening of its newest custom-built hazmat warehouse in Surprise.

This state-of-the-art facility, with 123,516 square feet and 16,000 pallet positions, allows Rinchem to strategically support the semiconductor industry in the Phoenix metro area.

“This new facility represents a significant investment in our Arizona operations and is our second chemical warehouse in the Phoenix metro area,” stated Chris Easter, CEO of Rinchem. “We’re proud to partner with a leading player in the semiconductor industry to ensure their critical supply chain runs smoothly. We’re confident it will play a crucial role in supporting the growth of the local semiconductor industry and contributing to the region’s economic prosperity.”

The Surprise chemical warehouse features several key elements to ensure the safe and efficient storage of dangerous goods:

  • Expansive ISO container yard: At 103,000 square feet, the ISO yard boasts 432 spaces, offering room for secure containerized storage.
  • Dedicated gas pad: A dedicated gas pad with 48 storage bays further enhances safety and segregation of high purity chemicals and gases.
  • Temperature controlled storage: Rinchem caters to various hazard classes and chemistries with dedicated storage spaces ranging from refrigerated and freezer rooms to temperature-controlled zones for flammable and corrosive materials.
  • Cleanroom services: Future plans include cleanroom capabilities to meet the stringent requirements of the semiconductor industry.

Graycor Construction Company, the general contractor responsible for bringing Rinchem's vision to life, expressed its pride in contributing to the success of another groundbreaking project for Rinchem.

The Surprise warehouse opening follows Rinchem’s launch of two other hazmat warehouses in 2023 located in Cornelius, Oregon, and Penang, Malaysia.
