Operations have begun at GEA’s new 86,000 square-foot fabrication, repair, logistics and training facility in Janesville, Wisconsin, U.S.

Representing an investment of some US$20 million to meet demand from the company’s growing Midwest customer base, the facility has production capabilities to finalize separator, decanter as well as valve and pump assembly. The new site has a strong emphasis on sustainability, with environmentally friendly measures including solar panels, water reuse systems and a state-of-the-art building management system.

“Opening the new Janesville facility as anticipated in December 2023 represents a significant step toward meeting our customers where they operate,” says Azam Owaisi, CEO GEA North America. “It highlights GEA’s commitment to product quality and service excellence. We are excited to become a vibrant employer and partner for the Janesville community.”

Deployed primarily in the pharmaceutical, dairy, food and marine industries, separators are machines used to separate two liquids of different densities from each other. Decanters contribute to a cleaner environment in numerous industrial applications such as wastewater and water treatment. Valves and pumps control flow technology equipment, while homogenizers create uniform and consistent mixtures.
