October 13, 2017– Filtrexx International, a leading developer of Sustainable Best Management Practice (SBMP) solutions, hosted an Open House on October 12, 2017 to celebrate the opening of their new facility in Gilroy, California. The event featured four workshops, booths that displayed EnviroSoxx®, SiltSoxx™, StormExx® and LivingWalls™ and product demonstrations. The nearly 80 people that attended were treated to a facility tour, lunch, a raffle that included a grand prize of a guided fishing tour and much more. The Gilroy Chamber of Commerce also performed an official ribbon cutting ceremony for the facility.
The Open House coincided with the sixth annual Storm Water Awareness Week which ran October 9-13. Filtrexx hosted a number of workshops including A Watershed Manager’s Guide to Organics and A BMP Road Map for Returning to Baseline. Attendees were encouraged to partake in all of the day’s festivities.
“The Filtrexx Gilroy facility is a natural step in Filtrexx’s support of the California market,” said Rob Carrothers, President of Filtrexx. “Filtrexx has upgraded its support to California with this state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that supports both Filtrexx’s commitment to sustainability and California’s commitment to repairing and supporting its environment through organic solutions.”
Filtrexx’s decision to open the Gilroy location came to fruition with the announcement that California would be one of the first states to mandate the diversion of organics away from landfills. By 2018, 50 percent of organics must be diverted from landfills and 75 percent by 2019. Filtrexx repurposes organic compost through all of their systems and with an abundance of organic compost in California the opening of this location just made sense.
