Creative Pultrusions celebrated the grand opening of its new Tower Tech facility on its campus in Pleasantville Thursday with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The 36,000-square-foot facility at 214 Industrial Park Road houses the manufacturing operations of Tower Tech’s cooling towers.
“This facility represents our purpose,” said Tower Tech President Mathu Solo. “Our purpose is to save valuable resources by providing innovative cooling solutions to bridge the gap between sustainability and energy efficiency.”
Creative Pultrusions purchased the formerly Oklahoma-based Tower Tech in September 2017.
Shane Weyant, CEO and president of Creative Pultrusions, said the company immediately had plans to relocate the Tower Tech manufacturing facility to Alum Bank.
Tower Tech was founded in 1985 and has grown into a mid-sized manufacturer of cooling towers. Creative Pultrusions has manufactured custom glass wool reinforced polymer cooling tower profiles for Tower Tech for about 20 years.
Solo said Weyant made a sales call to Tower Tech in 1991 and it changed the company’s future for the better.
“Shane had a vision and a passion for Tower Tech,” Solo said. “It’s through him that we stand here today in this new facility.”
The company’s towers are commonly used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
“Basically a big box used to transfer heat through the contact of air and water,” Solo said. “It’s a pretty simple concept but Tower Tech does it better than anyone else.”
The new facility is expected to create about 15 new jobs.
Established in 1973, Creative Pultrusions is located in Pleasantville and is a subsidiary of Hill & Smith Holdings PLC, an international group with leading positions in the design, manufacture and supply of infrastructure products and galvanizing services to global markets.
