Norquay Technology Inc.

Company Description


Norquay was founded in 1987 with a focus to develop a product line and custom synthesis for customer proprietary products. Our niche is the demanding low volume commercialization of specific molecules for high performance applications. The volumes range from 50 to 100,000+ lbs, requiring high quality product at demanding delivery and economic targets. Norquay brings scale-up and process optimization to reduce costs and cycle times while understanding the chemical synthesis. The manufacture of products is under-served by the custom synthesis market.

Norquay manufactures medical device, photolithographic, electronic, polyolefin metallocenes catalyst and UV stabilizer product lines.

Norquay’s business is split between product line and custom synthesis. Export is an important growth area, with representatives for specific product lines in Europe, Asia, Central and South America.

New products are evaluated with preference to extensions of current product lines. Norquay works under secrecy agreements to scale from bench to pilot plant to commercialization.
