YUMA, AZ, SEPT 19, 2017 -- MPW has purchased 8 acres of land for a 30,000-square-foot industrial water regeneration plant.
MPW's regeneration facilities serve clients within a 700-mile radius, restoring the exhausted resin from the company's mobile deionization systems back to an ionic form capable of purifying more water. Clients requiring pure water for their processes include the automotive, power generation, petrochemical and refining and pulp and paper industries.
"This new plant will enable us to meet the needs of our growing customer base in the Southwestern United States," said MPW President Jared Black. "Both Yuma and the state of Arizona have proven to be extremely business friendly. This location allows us to easily reach nearby clients who depend on us for prompt and timely service."
MPW estimates its total capital expenditure to be approximately $9 million for the project. Over the initial four-year period of operation, the Greater Yuma Economic Development Corp. estimates MPW's facility to have an impact of more than $31.7 million within the Yuma area.
Construction is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2018, with the facility reaching operational status by the second quarter of 2019.
The Yuma facility will be MPW's sixth regeneration plant, joining Newark, Ohio; Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania; Sedalia, Missouri; Port Arthur, Texas; and Andrews, South Carolina.
With nearly 3,000 employees and 73 locations in the United States and Canada, MPW Industrial Services provides industrial cleaning, water purification, facility management and environmental management services to customers in the power generation, primary metals, chemicals, refining, oil and gas, automotive, food and beverage and pulp and paper industries. MPW's corporate headquarters is in Hebron, Ohio. www.mpwservices.com.
