Hypercat Advanced Catalyst Products commenced operation in West Chester, PA
in 2005 as a manufacturer of innovative products for emerging segments of
the catalytic device marketplace.
In just two astonishing years personnel grew from four to twelve people, operations square footage nearly doubled, and the company's capabilities, meanwhile, caught the attention of Metalico Inc, an industry leader in scrap recycling with sales over 500MM, who purchased Hypercat in 2007.
Hypercat's manufacturing facility is 37,700 square feet in size. 19,750 of those are dedicated for catalyst manufacturing. 8,400 square feet are used for engineering and maintenance, and 9,000 square feet is set aside for laboratory testing, process development and specialty catalyst production.
Hypercat's President, Gerry Smith
, is a 30+ year industry veteran, having
worked a majority of that span in operations, quality, product development
and general management, with wide-ranging knowledge in the emissions control
of small engines, motorcycles, gasoline engines, light and heavy duty diesel
and stationary applications.
Vice President of Operations is David Johnston
, a Chemical Engineer from
Drexel University. His prior extensive experience as catalyst research
specialist and Operations Manager at an environmental consulting firm who
specialized in catalyst testing and laboratory evaluations, uniquely
qualifies him for the innovative leadership necessary at Hypercat.
Kathy Bynum is Hypercat's Sales & Marketing Manager
. She has earned a B.S. in Chemical Engineering also from Drexel University, and has an MBA from Penn State. Kathy's years as a Sales Manager in the stationary emissions control sector has allowed her to leverage a body of knowledge in identifying, evaluating and developing opportunities for Hypercat's diverse client portfolio.
