Environmental Solutions Opens Plant In Phoenix

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Environmental Solutions, which is Chattanooga-based, has opened a new plant in Phoenix.

The company said the expansion is necessary to address a growing demand for its products in the western region of the United States.

 

Bob McMackins, ESG’s vice president of manufacturing, said, “Our manufacturing operations have been primarily located in the Southeast. Having a large-scale manufacturing option in the western part of the U.S. makes perfect sense for our customers. We can now manufacture our products much closer to their point of use, reducing freight charges for our customers.”

 

Officials said they will initially use the facility to manufacture their Marathon brand of compactors and balers used in solid waste and recycling applications, as well as anaerobic digestion systems produced in partnership with Zero Waste Energy of Lafayette, Calif.

 Production is set to begin this month as operations are moved from the Marathon plant in Yerington, Nev..

 

President Pat Carroll said, “Our new Phoenix plant is well positioned to help us meet the increased west coast demand for our products efficiently and cost-effectively. We are excited about the trust which customers place in our brands and about our expanded capacity for meeting their needs.”

 

Environmental Solutions Group encompasses leading brands in the solid waste and recycling industry, including Heil Environmental, Marathon Equipment Company, Bayne Premium Lift Systems, and The Curotto-Can Company. ESG is part of Dover Corporation, a Fortune 500, diversified, global manufacturer of specialized industrial products and equipment with annual revenues of over $8 billion.
