Calgon Carbon Corp. will relocate its world headquarters from Robinson to the nearly completed Westpointe Corporate Center Four building in Moon in early 2015.

The company announced on Monday it will locate about 200 employees in the building, considered one of the most environmentally green buildings in the region. The employees include the executive staff, sales, service and research and development.

“We are an evolving high-technology company committed to researching and developing the best solutions for helping make the world's water and air safer and cleaner,” said Randall Dearth, chairman, president and CEO.

The company's products include activated carbon and specialty products, ion exchange technology systems, activated carbon absorption equipment and ultraviolet technologies, according to Calgon Carbon's website.

Its clients include municipalities, government agencies, and food, chemical, and drug manufacturers needing purification solutions.

Dearth said that combining the research laboratory with the corporate staff will help build “a collaborative organization dedicated to identifying and supporting the efforts of our customers as they work to improve their communities.”

The five-story building constructed by DiCicco Development Inc. is located on 10 acres at 3000 GSK Drive, close to FedEx Ground and a Homewood Suites hotel, near Route 60 and Montour Run Road.
