Evoqua Water Technologies, a leader in mission-critical water treatment solutions, recently celebrated the opening of its new facility based in Warrington, United Kingdom. The state-of-the-art facility will serve as Evoqua's global center of excellence in developing leading-edge UV disinfection solutions.
The new facility will relocate Evoqua's operations from its previous site in Wigan, UK, and supports the need for expanded facilities to advance future growth plans. The 30,000 square-foot building boasts an expanded footprint to increase manufacturing and research and development capabilities, a dedicated training space, and additional meeting places to encourage employee collaboration.
Operations will focus on manufacturing Evoqua's ATG® UV product line - environmentally friendly, chemical-free UV disinfection and water treatment systems. The facility will also serve as the Wallace & Tiernan® product distribution and project build site for the United Kingdom market. Evoqua's Wallace & Tiernan brand encompasses premier products for gas chlorination, disinfection, and chemical dosing.
"We are extremely pleased to officially open our new global center of excellence for UV disinfection solutions," said Ron Keating, Evoqua's Chief Executive Officer. "The investment in this facility underscores our commitment to growth and innovation of our disinfection treatment solutions portfolio, strengthening our ability to support our customers globally."
To inaugurate the event, Mr. Keating was joined by Hervé Fages, Evoqua's Executive Vice President and Applied Product Technologies Segment President, and Steffen Lange, Vice President and General Manager of Evoqua's Disinfection Division, for the ceremonial ribbon-cutting event hosted on June 8, 2022.
