NEFCO, Incorporated
NEFCO is a major provider of engineered fiberglass products to the Water and Wastewater Treatment Industry. The company is headquartered in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. with manufacturing facilities located throughout the United States. Earle Schaller founded the company in the late 1980's in Stamford, Connecticut. The company produced the first operational FRP Density Current Baffle for the Stamford WWTP based on a concept developed by Bob Crosby and the Stamford treatment plant staff. Soon thereafter, the company was producing "Stamford Baffles" for many Connecticut cities under the auspices of a statewide grant program for treatment plant improvements. The Connecticut DEP described the Density Current Baffle as "the most cost-effective improvement in clarifier performance available today." Mr. Schaller continued to develop the baffle and designed an integrally molded, fiberglass baffle "module" that optimized baffle performance and greatly simplified installation. This design is patented in the US, Canada, Japan and elsewhere. The company moved to its present Florida location in 1993 and continued baffle development while expanding its product base to include other treatment plant applications. Principal among these are the Launder Cover Systems designed to inhibit the growth of algae and control odor. NEFCO offers a number of cover system designs to suit various treatment plant requirements. The company has been granted numerous patents for its Launder Cover designs. Today, NEFCO is the world leader in the design and development of both Density Current Baffle and Launder Cover Systems and a major supplier of effluent trough systems, weirs, scum baffles and custom fabrications. The company recently completed an Advanced Density Current Baffle Design Study that resulted in two new baffle systems that significantly improve clarifier performance. NEFCO is noted for its innovative designs and the quality of its products. Before founding NEFCO, Mr. Schaller spent more than twenty-five years in the aerospace industry with Hughes Aircraft, Space Division of General Electric Company, and Litton Industries.
