Pittsburgh-based Evoque Water Technologies, a company providing water and wastewater treatment solutions, recently held the grand opening of its plant in Warrington, UK.

The company has relocated Evoque’s operations to Wigan, UK at the new facility which will serve as a global center of excellence for the development of cutting-edge ultraviolet (UV) disinfection solutions. It includes manufacturing and research areas, training space and meeting places to encourage employee collaboration.

The 30,000 square foot facility will support the company’s future growth plans. It will manufacture Evoque’s UV ATG product line, which offers environmentally friendly, chemical-free UV disinfection and water treatment systems.

The facility will also distribute Wallace & Tiernan products and serve as the project’s construction site for the UK market. The brand includes products for gas chlorination, disinfection and chemical dosing.

“We are extremely pleased to officially open our new global center of excellence for UV disinfection solutions,” said Evoque CEO Ron Keating. “The investment in this facility underscores our commitment to the growth and innovation of our portfolio of disinfection treatment solutions, strengthening our ability to support our customers around the world.

Hervé Fages, executive vice president of Evoque and president of the Applied Product Technologies segment, attended the inauguration, as did Steffen Lange, vice president and general manager of the Disinfection division of Evoque.
