Enviro-Tech Systems (ETS), a full-service process water treatment manufacturer in Covington, will soon be expanding to a brand new facility to better serve the offshore drilling industry.
The nonprofit organization responsible for retaining and attracting business and employment opportunities in the region, the St. Tammany Economic Development Foundation (STEDF), has released details of the new facility, including its 10,000 square foot size valued at over $1 million.
The project is expected to create the need for 25 skilled trade workers in addition to the current estimated 50 staff members. The team will provide technical service as well as repairing and refurbishing skimmers, corrugated plate separators and other gravity separation equipment dealing with wastewater in the oil and gas industry.
“Our Covington facility has served us well for 17 years,” said VP Frank Richerand, II. “The increase in demand and the growth of our international sales require this expansion and the need for additional talented staff. Equally important, St. Tammany provides us with a locational advantage allowing us to be near our customers.”
ETS produces devices that treat water that has mixed with oil so that the water can be reintroduced back into the environment safely. The company has also developed its own line of equipment, including the Enviro-Sep™ Corrugated Plate Separator (CPI), Enviro-Cell ™ Induced Gas Flotation Cell and corrugated plate separator, flowbacks and more.
