Gelest Inc. recently announced it has extended its reach into Europe through the acquisition of a warehouse and logistics center in Industriepark Griesheim, Frankfurt/Main, Germany. The expansion is reportedly in response to the increased demand for the company’s silanes and metal-organics in the pharmaceutical and diagnostic markets.

The company also reportedly 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.
