New Mexico-based Rinchem announced Jan. 25 a 50,000-square-foot expansion to its existing building in West Chandler, located at 6805 W. Morelos Place. Construction of the shell is nearly complete, and the company plans to begin operating in the building by June 2021, according to a news release from the city of Chandler.

Rinchem is a chemical management company that provides high-purity, prepackaged chemicals and gases, according to the release. The primary industries Rinchem serves include pharmaceutical, biotech, semiconductor and aerospace, according to the release.


Rinchem’s existing building is 100,000 square feet and was completed in 2015. This $10 million investment will lead to approximately 25 new jobs with room for additional expansion in the future, according to the news release.

“Rinchem is in a great location for growth with the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway expansion providing further access to talent for West Chandler employers,” Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke said in a news release. “Our West Chandler employment corridor is home to nearly 30,000 employees and we are thrilled to see hiring growth from Rinchem.”
