Quaron, a French leader in chemical distribution and formulation announces that it will build its eighth site within the Carling Saint-Avold platform and is about to launch the related project studies . The goal of this project is to increase significantly Quaron’s commercial presence in the Grand-Est region.
Quaron plans to start its operations in Carling in 2021, using the available land, utilities and services provided by the Carling Saint-Avold platform, which is Seveso classified and regroups French leading chemical companies. The site is expected to employ 20 people once it reaches its full capacity.
