Coherent Semiconductor Expansion

Coherent is a leader in wide-bandgap semiconductors. Coherent is accelerating its investment in 150 mm and 200 mm silicon carbide (SiC) substrate and epitaxial wafer manufacturing with large-scale factory expansions in Easton, Pennsylvania, and Kista, Sweden.

DEDC was requested to participate in project planning and lead the design phases of this fast-paced multi-phased Easton Expansion Project.

DuPont Facility Relocation

DuPont Transportation & Advanced Polymers (T&AP)  manufactures Kalrezperfluoroelastomer (Kalrez®) parts that are used in the semiconductor, electronics, and industrial markets.

Business growth requires that the Kalrez manufacturing facility relocate to a new, larger facility. The new facility will allow manufacturing of Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts to expand in-line with the projected business growth and to better serve customers.

DEDC was selected to provide all mechanical and electrical engineering and design for this complex $45 million project.

Catalent Pharma Clinical Expansion

Catalent is a global provider of drug delivery technologies, drug manufacturing solutions, biologics, gene therapies and consumer health products.

This project involves the renovation of 16,000 square feet of space to create new cold rooms (8ºC, -20ºC and -80ºC), ambient temperature packaging rooms and support spaces. The support spaces include gowning, a new break room, renovated restrooms, receiving and waste dock and storage.

DEDC was the lead design firm for the project. We were responsible for all design disciplines. We also provided all MEP and structural engineering and design services for the project.

Chem Rx

Chem Rx is a compounding and specialty pharmacy that provides customized medication to patients, providers, and other organizations. Chem Rx initiated a project to create two (2) new 503a and 503b compliant manufacturing cells. DEDC provided engineering and design service for the project.

Bostik Adhesives

Bostik is a manufacturer of adhesive and sealing products. The company develops, manufactures, and distributes specialty adhesives and sealants for construction, industrial and consumer markets. This project created a new grout manufacturing  process line. The work also included construction of a new building. DEDC provided engineering and design for the project.

GE Aviation

GE Aviation’s Delaware facility manufactures advanced aircraft engine components made of ceramic matrix composites. DEDC has completed several manufacturing expansions, quality improvement and cost reduction projects for GE Aviation.

SPI Pharma

SPI Pharma provides pharmaceutical products that improve the formulation and delivery of drug products to meet patient needs. SPI products include antacid actives, excipients, taste-masking technology, drug delivery systems for tablets, and other fast-dissolve technologies.

DEDC provides engineering and design services to one of SPI’s manufacturing facilities. We are an SPI Alliance partner providing engineering and design services.


Coherent designs and manufactures high-precision ceramic and metal-matrix composite components for LCD manufacturing, semiconductor equipment, defense products and optics applications.

This project relocated the existing Coherent manufacturing processes to a larger 50,000 square foot building. DEDC provided engineering and design for this project.

Wedgewood Pharmacy

Wedgewood Pharmacy serves both the human health and veterinary markets. Wedgewood’s most-common human health compounded preparations include urology, obstetrics/gynecology, addiction, dentistry, endocrinology, and dermatology.

This project modified and expanded Wedgewood’s Sterile and Non-Sterile Hazardous Drug (HD) Areas and Aseptic Compounding (AC) HD Buffer Rooms.

Siemens Healthineers Product Storage Expansion

Siemens’ Newark, Delaware facility manufactures flexible, scalable, automation-ready immunoassay and clinical chemistry analyzers and associated components. Some medicinal products require controlled storage conditions to ensure quality is not compromised. This project provided additional medicinal product storage.
