Move to Waterbury, Conn., to add jobs and meet growing demand for highest-efficiency products
WATERBURY, CONN. – (September 5, 2012) – Eemax, the nation’s leading manufacturer of commercial, industrial and residential electric tankless water heaters, today celebrated the lease signing of its new plant-headquarter location in Waterbury, Conn., at a public ceremony with the city’s mayor and members of local government.
Eemax’s relocation to a larger facility is necessitated by an 83 percent growth in sales over the past six years. Eemax has the market’s most extensive product line, ranging from small hand washing units (2.4 kW) to commercial drench shower units (150kW). Eemax products deliver a continuous supply of hot water at a preset temperature to any point-of-use application with 99 percent energy efficiency.
Eemax is investing in new equipment, engineering test labs, training center, and more personnel from the local community to accommodate an anticipated doubling in size over the next five years as the company launches a new product line. The new product line re-invents electric tankless water heaters by utilizing state of the art technology.
“As the demand for high-efficiency water heaters increases and our business continues unprecedented growth, it’s more important than ever for us to extend the reach of this carbon-efficient technology,” said Eemax President and CEO Kevin Ruppelt.
Following some renovation, the facility will open in November as Eemax moves from its current world headquarters in Oxford, Conn., including its Engineering, Marketing, Sales, Customer Service, Accounting, and Manufacturing divisions.
“We have the state of Connecticut, the city of Waterbury and our investor, Riverside Companies to thank for supporting Eemax as it enters this exciting stage in expansion,” said Ruppelt, individually thanking Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary and Economic Development Director Ronald Pugliese for their direct involvement, and citing the low-interest city and state development loans that made it possible.
