MPW has purchased 8 acres of land in Yuma, Arizona, 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.
The new facility, which will be located at 7950 E. 30th St., will house more than 35 full-time MPW employees, with an estimated direct annual payroll in excess of $2 million.
“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.
