[ARCHIVED] Apptech Announces Expansion in Roanoke County

Apptech Ribbon Cutting

SALEM, Virginia. – April 23, 2015 – Apptech Solutions, LLC, an innovative design and manufacturer of water and wastewater treatment and conveyance solutions today announced plans to expand into a 27,000 sq. ft. facility located at 3993 Daugherty Road in Roanoke County. The ribbon cutting and open house event included state and local elected officials to celebrate Apptech’s growth in Roanoke County.

Apptech worked with Roanoke County to identify a suitable facility to accommodate its operations. The existing facility allowed the company to expedite their expansion while providing the office and manufacturing space needed, and land to accommodate future growth. The company was assisted by the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP) of the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) with a $78,000 grant to support their recruiting and workforce training needs. “Apptech is a local entrepreneurial success story that dramatizes the growth in manufacturing in the Roanoke region. Their continued investment here speaks to the strong economic climate and business support network available in Roanoke,” said Jill Loope Director of Economic Development for Roanoke County.

Founded in 2006 in Roanoke by Scott Easter, Chief Operating Officer, and Dan Early, Chief Technology Officer, Apptech Solutions is a privately owned company committed to protecting the Earth’s precious water resources through the implementation of advanced and sustainable technologies. The company is a manufacturer of innovative Structurally Reinforced Thermoplastic (SRTP) based water and wastewater treatment and conveyance systems. Apptech has numerous issued and pending patents, including the world’s first large capacity fully integrated thermoplastic wastewater treatment system and pump station. In June 2014 Apptech began the transition from research and development to market penetration and has since made numerous strategic hires in sales, engineering and manufacturing. Apptech currently has a staff of over 30 employees and is projecting to create more than 100 new jobs over the next three years with strategic growth plans and market absorption.

Apptech’s unique portfolio includes wastewater treatment systems, potable water systems, pump stations, a variety of containerized mobile solutions and other unique solutions. Market sectors served include commercial, residential, agricultural, industrial, institutional, mining, military and humanitarian initiatives. “Our designs integrate the industry’s most current technologies into new and unique solutions custom designed for each and every project application,” Easter states.

“Apptech’s mission statement focuses on innovating advanced water and wastewater treatment solutions to service existing civil infrastructure demands in the developed world while providing the same solutions in a transformative fashion to developing and underdeveloped nations around the world. We believe in our heart of hearts that while our technologies have their place in North America, our biggest impact will be the opportunity to improve the quality of life for hundreds of millions of people who lack even the most basic water and sanitation services,” Early said. “Our new facility provides the spring board for us to make this mission a reality.”
