This month, GEO Specialty Chemicals Inc. opened its new manufacturing facility in Deer Park, Texas. Designed to produce highly active polyaluminum chloride (PAC) products, the new plant will serve Texas municipalities in need of improved, cost-effective solutions in clean water practices. The facility is operated by GEO's Water Treatment Chemicals Div.
"GEO has looked forward to commissioning this plant and making this capital investment in Texas to deliver cost-effective specialty chemical products that help our customers there meet increasingly stringent regulatory standards," said CEO and President Kenneth A. Ghazey.
The new plant is designed specifically to manufacture aluminum-based coagulants for water treatment solutions. It sits on a 108-acre site that also manufactures GEO's Glycine product line. This Deer Park facility will be the second site in GEO's portfolio to make the new highly active PAC products; the other is located in Chattanooga, Tenn. Currently, GEO owns and operates 16 water treatment centers throughout the southeast U.S. and has assisted thousands of municipal water treatment systems in North America.
"We are very experienced in customized water treatment solutions and are now able to further open up the Texas water marketplace and to serve municipalities with superior water treatment products," said Scot Lang, GEO's senior vice president for the Water Treatment Chemicals Div. "By building this revolutionary manufacturing process, new highly active PAC products can improve coagulation for cleaner water. I am pleased to announce the plant is fully operational."
