First Sale for OriginClear’s Modular Water Treatment Division
August 14, 2018
Los Angeles, CA – August 14, 2018 – OriginClear Inc. (OTC/QB: OCLN), a leading provider of water treatment solutions, today announced that on July 25, 2018, its Modular Water Systems division (www.modularwater.com), received its first order totaling about $60,000.
The order was for a brewery wastewater treatment plant that will use a heavy reinforced plastic system invented and patented by Daniel “Dan” Early P.E. (Professional Engineer), President of OriginClear’s Modular Water Systems unit.
“Dan brought in his first sale within 30 days as president of Modular Water Systems”, said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginClear CEO. “These sales can take months of lead time, so that is an amazing performance.”
Recently, OriginClear hired Brian Pearce as Operations Manager, with the priority mandate of supporting the rollout of Modular Water Systems. Previously, Pearce served as Chief Operating Officer of Beyond Security, a security software company. In addition to hiring Brian, OriginClear is beefing up its accounting and service staff, and investing in manufacturing software.
Modular Water Systems is domiciled at OriginClear’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Progressive Water Treatment of McKinney, Texas, and will rely on Progressive’s manufacturing facilities until it develops its own in-house facilities.
“We plan to have candid and proactive discussions about our expansion plans,” said Bill Charneski, president of the OriginClear Group. “Ultimately, we want to move to a standardized Modular Water Systems product line, and Progressive Water Treatment’s capabilities are key to this plan.”
Modular Water™ designs and delivers prefabricated wastewater treatment products to customers and end-users that have to clean their own wastewater. It uses Structurally Reinforced Thermoplastic (SRTP) materials to focus on developing water and wastewater collection, conveyance, and treatment systems that have high performance and sustainability.
Typical customers include schools, small communities, institutional facilities, real estate developments, factories, and industrial parks.
Dan Early has pioneered the use of heavy reinforced plastic materials to create modular “water-systems-in-a-box”. Not only is reinforced thermoplastic faster and cheaper to build, but it has at least three times the lifespan as compared with concrete-and-steel construction. His inventions have led to the patented Wastewater System & Method for which OriginClear holds world exclusive rights.
In a 2016 Water Online guest column, “The Water Revolution: Moving To A Decentralized System,” Riggs Eckelberry stated: “Instead of rebuilding our current infrastructure, we can equip water users to treat their own water with small, modular water treatment systems that can be built and installed locally. The opportunity is clear: move to a decentralized structure.”
