Par Chem, part 2

August 23rd, 2012 by



This is part 2 of our photo series on Par Chemical. The first one can be found here.

New Jersey is often associated with huge ridiculous chemical factories. This place falls directly into that category. Abandoned for several years now, this massive factory and laboratory have since been taken over by nature. The company that built it is still in business - only they've modernized their operation and built a huge new facility elsewhere on their expansive property - leaving this one behind to decay. it would probably cost more to clean it up and scrap it out than to leave is rusting away in it's present day state.

    Is this the old hercules plant pictured here? I don’t mind mentioning it since it’s long gone now. I’m having a hard time recognizing the plant pictures, they must be pretty old.

  2. Control says:

    I honestly don’t know the name of this place. What town was this Hercules plant in?

  3. Jack Dillinger says:

    It was in sayreville nj. Does that sound familiar?

  4. Control says:

    Yes. So it’s all gone now? I haven’t been down there in3 or 4 years.

  5. Jack Dillinger says:

    Yep, I’d say everything but the park. When they started tearing it down it was all gone in half a year or so. There was some cool stuff hidden away in there!
