Approximately 125 visitors, customers, reps, suppliers, politicians, as well as local and trade press-packed the new Eemax facility with eager eyes as Eemax opened its doors to the public at the new headquarters in Waterbury, CT. Throughout the day tours and presentations were carried out giving insight on the company’s history and success, as well as what the future holds for Eemax.
The new building is double the size and boasts a new engineering and test lab, water recycling system and a new customer training facility. “The move was seamless. We manufactured products on a Thursday in our old building and were able to start manufacturing on a Friday – in the new facility, all without an impact on delivery and service to our customers.” Said Kevin Ruppelt, CEO
