Canadian-based Ridgeline Energy Services Inc., an energy services and water treatment company, opened its new Deaver, Wyoming, manufacturing facility, where it will produce storage systems, convergence and degassing systems, and molded tank products.
The Company is applying proprietary technology to treat water generated from industrial and commercial waste water markets. It serves a wide variety of clients across a broad spectrum of industries including oil and gas.
Its new manufacturing facility, previously used as a school campus, includes approximately seven acres and five campus buildings, and totals approximately 65,500 square feet. The buildings and land are leased at a small annual cost to Ridgeline with the option to purchase the facility in the future as land is transferred from the U.S. Federal Government.
While hiring the capital investment cost to retrofit the new site was not immediately available, Tony Ker, CEO of Ridgeline Energy Services, stated, "This facility will enable Ridgeline to lower manufacturing costs, accelerate system delivery times and continue the development of our technology. We look forward to ramping production in our Wyoming facility to support our growth in the coming years."
Dennis M. Danzik, Ridgeline Director of Engineering and Operations, said, "The conversion of this vacant school campus into a manufacturing facility that will create jobs and generate a positive economic impact is a testament to the vision and the entrepreneurial spirit that permeates the state of Wyoming. The firm did not release hiring estimates.
The firm said the site was selected because of geographical amenities and tax incentives. Strategically situated the northern border of Wyoming, the town of Deaver provides Ridgeline access to many of its most important geographic markets: North Dakota; Alberta, Canada; Colorado; eastern Utah and western Texas. In addition, Wyoming has no state income tax and is one of the most advantageous business environments in North America. The new facility is also less than ten minutes from Northwest Community College, which offers a world-class welding program and other engineering and construction disciplines.
