New facility meets demand for PolyCera membranes
Water Planet has moved its corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations to a new location at 8915 La Cienega Blvd., Inglewood, Calif.
The new facility provides 6,700 sq ft of additional office and manufacturing space to accommodate the company’s growth and meet its increasing demand for PolyCera membranes. The new manufacturing space increases WPI’s production capabilities for PolyCera by a factor of 12 times and will meet the company’s projected PolyCera sales through 2020. Moreover, the production capacity can be further expanded by up to 4 times within the new facility as demand requires.
Water Planet’s campus now consists of three buildings: the new corporate headquarters and PolyCera manufacturing facility, IntelliFlux systems engineering and tech services, and the company’s research and development laboratories.
“Since our founding in 2011, Water Planet continues to experience rapid growth as the marketplace embraces our game-changing technologies, including PolyCera ultrafiltration membrane products and IntelliFlux ultrafiltration system controls, which represents the water treatment industry’s first application of artificial intelligence to improve performance and reliability of membrane systems. This move enables us to expand our ability to meet accelerating customer demand for these disruptive technologies, while we continue to innovate,” said Eric Hoek, Water Planet CEO.
PolyCera is a membrane filtration technology based on advanced polymeric materials. Introduced only a few months ago, PolyCera is being deployed in industrial water reuse in refining, power, food and beverage, and oil and gas applications; in municipal wastewater in tertiary filtration and MBR form-factors; and for POU/POE drinking water.
