August 2013, Pickering, Ontario – Eco-Tec Inc., global supplier of industrial water treatment and chemical recovery systems, is adding a significant expansion to its manufacturing facility. The addition is in response to growing orders for large-scale equipment from worldwide clients in the oil & gas, power generation, and metal finishing/refining industries.
Eco-Tec officially issued a contract on July 16, 2013, to add approximately 17,000 square feet (1,580 square meters) of state-of-the-art production space to its current 32,080-square-foot (2,980-square-meter) facility.
“This expansion will allow us to become an even stronger leader in the marketplace and give us the ability to provide larger-scale products that will meet growing demand,” said Dr. Phillip (Rocky) Simmons, Eco-Tec President and CEO.
The new space will increase Eco-Tec’s capabilities; namely, in welding, material handling, sand blasting, and painting. The extra capacity will go into constructing high-performing ion exchange/micro media filtration products, which dramatically reduce waste and operating costs for clients, compared to conventional counterparts.
In particular, the expansion will enhance production of produced water treatment for upstream oil production, amine purification for the downstream oil & gas sector, and water demineralization/boiler feed systems for various types of power generating facilities.
The expansion will also allow Eco-Tec to build even more of its components in-house, giving the company greater control over its high-quality equipment and parts. The extra capacity also means shorter delivery times for Eco-Tec’s clients located throughout all parts of the world.
Work on expanding Eco-Tec’s facility will begin immediately and is scheduled for completion in April 2014.
