Aries FilterWorks announces opening of temporary manufacturing facility

May 27, 2014

WEST BERLIN, N.J. — The company plans to build an expanded, state-of-the-art production facility in New Jersey.

WEST BERLIN, N.J. — Aries FilterWorks, a manufacturing division of ResinTech Inc., announced that it will build a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility on the site of its former New Jersey location that was destroyed by fire on May 8, according to a press release.

In the interim, the company has transferred production to its redundant Los Angeles location and is successfully fulfilling all customer orders while it opens a temporary plant to continue New Jersey operations in Berlin Township, the release reported.

The first products were scheduled to roll off the line at the temporary plant the week of May 19, noted the release.

“Years of safety and contingency planning have paid off,” said Jeffrey Gottlieb, executive vice president, ResinTech. “We have averted a crisis by transferring production to our West Coast location, and mobilizing quickly to establish a temporary production facility that will be replaced with a new, state-of-the-art plant by 2015. As a company, we have always prided ourselves in maintaining a safe, healthy workplace. That commitment, training and operational excellence paid big dividends. The building was successfully evacuated and there were no injuries.”

Officials from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) were on hand to confirm that no hazardous materials were leaked into the air or water, the release continued, while local authorities were able to contain damage to the individual building.
