W.R. Grace in Maryland

In 1832, Davison, Kettlewell & Co. began in Baltimore, Maryland. This company was later acquired by W.R. Grace and Company, which added to its Maryland holdings with the Washington Resource Center. In 1999, the company headquarters transferred to Columbia, Maryland.

Items Produced by W.R. Grace and Company

The two branches of W.R. Grace, Performance Chemicals and Davison Chemicals, are responsible for several different chemical products. Performance Chemicals produces items including:

  • Fireproofing and waterproofing materials
  • Concrete and cement additives and pigments
  • Coatings and sealants for food and beverage products
  • Roofing, decking, and other building materials

Davison Chemicals, on the other hand, focuses mainly on chemical and refining catalysts and silica products.

Asbestos in Chemical Plants

W.R. Grace and Company has faced thousands of lawsuits because of the alleged exposure of thousands of people, including the residents of Libby, Montana, to asbestos fibers.
