THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS – July 1, 2022 – SI Group, a leading global performance additives company, announces the closing of a transaction to sell its 81-acre corporate property, located at 2750 Balltown Road in Niskayuna, to Momentive Performance Materials Group (Momentive).

SI Group has signed a multi-year lease agreement with The Galesi Group for 19,655 square feet of Class A office space at Mohawk Harbor for more than 100 employees. “The space at Mohawk Harbor reflects the culture we aspire to create for our employees, and we look forward to offering our New York team access to the amenities that this community provides,” stated Brooke Manrique, Sr. Vice President of Human Resources and Communications at SI Group.
