Calgon Carbon Corp, an environmental technology company headquartered in Pittsburgh, held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of its new world headquarters on Sept. 21. Randy Dearth, Calgon Carbon’s chairman, president and CEO, alongside the company’s board of trustees, welcomed local municipal and state officials including Rich Fitzgerald, Allegheny County executive; Mark Mustio, Pennsylvania state representative; Mike Doyle, congressman; Keith Rothfus, congressman; Tim Murphy, congressman; and Matt Smith, Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce, to the new facility located in Moon Township.

Calgon Carbon has a 15-year lease with DiCicco Development to occupy 75,566 sq ft of the 130,000 sq ft. building. Approximately 200 of the company’s executive staff, sales and service employees made the move in early February. The research and development laboratory, which is known as the Innovation Center, was completed in August of this year.

"This headquarters represents a new chapter for Calgon Carbon,” Dearth said. “We’ve transformed this company over the past two years and this new location allows us to continue to grow and expand both our research and our business.”

The building, expected to be certified LEED Gold, features the use of solar power, a high-efficiency zone heating and cooling system, a living vegetation roof and ergonomic workstations.
