Environmental Solutions Group (ESG), headquartered in Chattanooga, Tenn., has opened a new manufacturing facility in Phoenix. The company says the expansion was needed to address the demand for its products in the western United States.

Bob McMackins, ESG vice president of manufacturing, says, “Our manufacturing operations have been primarily located in the Southeast. Having a large-scale manufacturing option in the western part of the U.S. makes perfect sense for our customers. We can now manufacture our products much closer to their point of use, reducing freight charges for our customers.”

The Phoenix facility initially will manufacture the company’s Marathon brand of compactors and balers, which are used in solid waste and recycling applications, and anaerobic digestion systems produced in partnership with Zero Waste Energy of Lafayette, Calif.

ESG will move its production operations from its plant in Yerington, Nev., to the Arizona location.

“Our new Phoenix plant is well-positioned to help us meet the increased west coast demand for our products efficiently and cost-effectively. We are excited about the trust which customers place in our brands and about our expanded capacity for meeting their needs,” says Pat Carroll, ESG president.

In addition to Marathon, ESG, a part of Dover Corp., manufactures products under company names Heil Environmental, Bayne Premium Lift Systems and The Curotto-Can Co.
