FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, June 24, 2009 -- Parkson recently opened its new Water Campus -- located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida -- to family and friends for the first time. This informal opening was a special tribute to Parkson employees and families throughout the world. Visitors were treated to tours of the new Parkson headquarters building and were entertained with presentations demonstrating many of the significant Parkson water-oriented technologies. In addition, visitors were able to enjoy being immersed in the world of water as interpreted by the headquarters facility's imaginative interior design with its many water-oriented features, such as numerous conference rooms, individually named and appointed in the theme of one of the world's great rivers.
"The opening of the new Parkson Water Campus, with its Headquarters Facility and the associated Water Research Facility is representative of a new era for Parkson Corporation, explained Zain Mahmood, President and CEO of Parkson Corporation. With the recent expansion of the company into the world's key markets, and the completion of this new Water Campus, Parkson is re-affirming its place on the world stage as the leading customer-centric, technology and solutions oriented organization in this age of enhanced water appreciation."
"To support our expansion goals in this new era of water, the Parkson team has been organized into four market-focused business units to align Parkson resources more precisely to the needs of its growing customer base. These units have been designated as: Municipal, Industrial and Systems, International, and Aftermarket Services. This is in addition to our Innovation and Technology Group, which is structured to focus on new product development."
"Earlier this year, Parkson Corporation opened its Center For Excellence for Process/Application Engineering. This provides us with a hub for training opportunities for Parkson engineers. We are pleased with what we have accomplished, but we look to the future with much excitement, because we think the future is quite bright."
The new Parkson headquarters building is being reviewed as a candidate for LEED certification (LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design); one of the first buildings in the immediate area to participate in this important leading-edge program.
Parkson Corporation is a leading provider of advanced solutions in water recycling and treatment, committed to providing clean water for the world.
