AMBLER, PA, Feb. 25, 2015 -- This month, GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc. (GEO), a global provider of high-quality, cost-effective specialty chemicals, opened its new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the city of Deer Park, Texas. Designed to produce highly active polyaluminum chloride (PAC) products, the new plant will serve Texas municipalities in need of improved, cost-effective solutions in clean water practices. The facility is operated by GEO's Water Treatment Chemicals Division.
The new plant is designed specifically to manufacture aluminum-based coagulants for water treatment solutions. It sits on a 108-acre site that also manufactures GEO's Glycine product line. This Deer Park utility will be the second site in the company's portfolio to develop the PAC products; the other is located in Chattanooga, Tenn. Currently, GEO owns and operates 16 water treatment centers throughout the Southeast United States and has assisted thousands of municipal water treatment systems in North America.
The proven benefits of PAC are reducing overall water treatment costs when compared to traditional alum, ferric and PAC programs and effectively removing water turbidity, color, heavy metals, and trace organic compounds (TOC). GEO's specialization in the area of water treatment allows for better results in basin turbidity and top-of-filter values; TOC, DOC, SUVA, THM, and HAA5 optimizations; coagulation to assist membrane operation and limit fouling; and application of coagulants to minimize cost.
Founded in 1993, GEO has grown through strategic acquisition and commitment to niche markets to become a supplier of specialty chemicals. The company currently manufactures over 300 products for a broad customer base of more than 1,000. It is proud of its reputation for meeting customer requirements exceeding expectations for quality and solving customer problems. In addition, GEO manufactures products in a manner that shows its strong commitment to safety and environmental compliance that benefits employees, customers and the communities.
