MPW officially opened its 86,000 square-foot Technology Center in July, 2017. Designed to house MPW’s growing engineering, fabrication and IT teams, the facility features a Fabrication Shop, which serves as a manufacturing hub for MPW’s industrial water equipment. MPW fabricators build mobile equipment including reverse osmosis (RO) and ultrafiltration (UF) trailers in the shop.
All control panels used in automated tools, from tube lancing machines to robotic blasters, are manufactured at the new center. Several prominent features of the shop include four saw stations, seven assembly stations, stainless steel welding stations and high-density polyethylene welding equipment.
Offices comprise nearly 40 percent of the available space within the new center. The combined office area, built to house the Engineering and IT departments, features 82 cubicles, 34 offices and 12 conference rooms.
To accommodate the steady activity at this high-tech assembly space, the shop has a shipping and receiving dock, a grand door for outside inventory and 13 trailer docks.
