E-Z Treat Expands Fauquier County, Virginia, Operations

E-Z Treat, a family owned-and-operated manufacturer of next generation wastewater treatment systems, will expand its operations in Fauquier County, Virginia. The $3.5 million project is expected to create 16 jobs.

The company will build a new 30,000-square-foot facility next to its existing site at 131 Gaskins Lane in the Village of Catlett in order to increase capacity and production capability.

“E-Z Treat relocated to Fauquier County years ago because of Virginia's better business climate and lower utility costs, as well as lower state and local taxes,” said Carl Perry, Owner of E-Z Treat. “As a result, we've grown significantly here and it makes sense to expand in Catlett, especially with the support we've received from Fauquier County and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership. We appreciate the Virginia Jobs Investment Program grant to help us offset the costs of workforce recruiting and training.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the Fauquier County Economic Development Department and will support E-Z Treat’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities. As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for citizens.

“Attracting and retaining manufacturers remains essential to economic growth across the Commonwealth, and we are proud of our long-term partnership with E-Z Treat,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “The company’s decision to expand reinforces the region’s competitive operating costs, access to markets, and workforce, and we thank E-Z Treat for its confidence in Virginia.”

E-Z Treat provides next generation wastewater treatment systems. The company designs and manufactures efficient and affordable onsite re-circulating sand filter, wastewater treatment systems.
