Evoqua to Open New Massachusetts Production Facility

March 6, 2015
The new production facility & R&D center will support expected growth of the company's water treatment products

Evoqua Water Technologies will double its capacity to produce its range of water treatment products at one of its key production facilities in the U.S.

Evoqua has broken ground on building a new production facility in Tewksbury, Mass., to replace its existing manufacturing in nearby Lowell, Mass. The company’s research and development (R&D) center in Lowell will be expanded into the vacated manufacturing space in order to accelerate commercialization of many of the new technologies under development by the company. The new R&D capabilities will include pilot production for new products prior to being placed into full manufacturing around the world. The Tewksbury and Lowell expansions are expected to be operational in the spring of 2015.

The new Evoqua Tewksbury facility will manufacture a range of water treatment products including Evoqua’s Ionpure continuous electrodeionization (CEDI) modules; select new products based on its new electrochemical desalination technology; and Capac impressed current cathodic protection anodes.

“The range of applications for our CEDI technology is widening and we are seeing the trend accelerate,” said Ron Keating, CEO of Evoqua Water Technologies. “There is a clear movement by OEMs and end users toward this purification method and we are expanding to meet that demand.”

The Evoqua Tewksbury facility, which employs approximately 50 production, operations support, engineering and procurement personnel, will be one of a dozen key production centers in the U.S. During construction, an additional 30 jobs have been created in the region.
