Company holds ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new facility in Youngsville, N.C.
Sunstone Water Group opened a new manufacturing facility in Youngsville, N.C., on Friday July 26. The company currently employs 25 workers at the plant, who are setting up production lines to produce mobile clean water treatment units. Sunstone Water Group's innovative technology was developed over the past seven years in Europe. This technology utilizes a proprietary seven-module water purification process that is built within a patented anti-shock frame, which is enclosed in a patented climate controlled reefer container. The Sunstone Water Group mobile water treatment systems have technology with communication consoles allowing engineers to monitor water treatment operations off-site, from anywhere in the world. Sunstone Water Group has the capability to separate oil from water through their ceramic membrane technology. The units can also clean wastewater from industrial facilities, manufacturing and food processing industries so it can be utilized and recycled.
The company held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday at the new facility.
