GEORGETOWN, S.C., July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MPW Industrial Services announced today the company will build an industrial water regeneration plant here that is expected to begin operations next summer.
Company officials said the $10 million project is expected to create 32 jobs during the next five years.
"This new plant will enable us to meet the needs of our growing customer base in the Southeast," said Jared Black, general manager for MPW's Industrial Water division. "In addition to being business friendly, Georgetown is a great location because we can easily reach clients from Florida to Alabama, all of whom depend on us for prompt and timely service."
MPW's regeneration facilities serve clients within a 500-mile radius, restoring the exhausted resin from the company's mobile deionization systems back to an ionic form capable of purifying more water. Clients requiring pure water for their processes include the automotive, power generation, petrochemical and refining, and pulp and paper industries.
The Georgetown facility will be MPW's fifth regeneration plant. The others are in Newark, Ohio; Port Arthur, Texas; Sedalia, Mo.; and Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
MPW has purchased a site at 373 Technology Drive, which is in the Georgetown County Business Center. Construction is expected to begin this fall.
With nearly 3,000 employees and 72 locations in the United States and Canada, MPW Industrial Services provides industrial cleaning, water purification, facility management and environmental management services to clients in the power generation, primary metals, chemicals, refining, oil and gas, automotive, food and beverage and pulp and paper industries.
