MIOX Expands Operations with East Coast Facility
MIOX Corporation, a leader in on-site generation of hypochlorite and mixed oxidants for water disinfection, has expanded operations to the East Coast, opening a suburban Philadelphia facility in Lansdale, Pa., the company said in a Feb. 20 press release.
The strategic expansion will enable MIOX to be more responsive to its growing installation base on the East Coast while also improving access to the European market. Key personnel will be based out of the Philadelphia facility, including Anthony Picozzi, senior vice president of Sales and Robert Newton, vice president of Industrial Markets.
The company's clean technologies disinfect water onsite, on demand, using just salt, water, and power. Creating disinfectant onsite is cost effective and environmentally responsible, cutting back transportation requirements, reducing carbon emissions and fuel consumption, and eliminating the storage and disposal of chemical containers.
"We are excited to establish our first office outside of corporate headquarters in Albuquerque, New Mexico,” said Carlos Perea, president and chief executive officer. “Environmental and safety concerns continue to drive growth in the on-site disinfection market. Users are also are finding that on-site solutions can dramatically reduce operational expenses and improve process quality."
