Oil Purification Systems, developer and manufacturer of the OPS-1 onboard oil refining system, has announced the opening of its new manufacturing plant in Waterbury, Conn. The company began operations at the 8,260-square-foot facility on Dec. 1, and will hold an open house today, Dec. 12.
The opening of the new, larger facility completes Oil Purification Systems’ relocation from Florida, and will expand the company’s production, quality assurance and product development capabilities. “After evaluating a number of different sites in Connecticut, Waterbury proved to be the perfect location for our manufacturing facility,” says Mitchell Weseley, president and chief executive officer of OPS. “Waterbury is extremely supportive of small businesses, and we look forward to continue building our business here.”
Waterbury Mayor Michael Jarjura says the city has installed the company’s OPS-1 system on its public works equipment to evaluate how much money can be saved by eliminating routine oil changes on the city’s public works fleet. “OPS has gained wide acceptance in many industries, and I encourage other cities and states to adopt its technology,” Jarjura says.
