The company plans to build expanded production facility in New Jersey
Aries FilterWorks, a manufacturing division of ResinTech Inc., will build a new manufacturing facility on the site of its former New Jersey location, which was destroyed by fire on May 8, 2014. In the interim, the company has transferred production to its redundant Los Angeles location and is fulfilling all customer orders while it opens a temporary plant to continue New Jersey operations in Berlin Township. The first products rolled off the line at the temporary plant the week of May 19, 2014.
Aries expects no job losses as a result of the fire and hopes to expand its employment base with the construction of the new facility.
Officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency were on hand to confirm that no hazardous materials were leaked into the air or water. Local authorities were able to contain damage to the individual building.
“Disaster and continuity planning is something you hope will never have to be implemented, but appreciate when those plans save lives, businesses and jobs,” said Jeffrey Gottlieb, executive vice president of ResinTech. “In this case, we averted a crisis through the planning, hard work and creativity of our people. They have proven to be incredibly resilient and committed to our customers and our industry, and have done an amazing job of continuing to serve our clients worldwide without missing a beat.”
