New Waste Water Treatment Sytem Goes Live

Waste Water Treatment

June 16, 2016 –Advanced Plating Technologies has completed and launched a brand new, state of the art waste treatment system that is 6x more productive than the previous system which was built in 1985 during the construction of APT’s Vilet Street facility. The largest capital investment in the history of the company was overseen by President John Lindstedt and Facility Manager Doug Winslow and took approximately two years to complete with the help of CP Conway Plumbing and other local and country wide vendors. This investment shows APT’s commitment to to continuing to adhere to regulations as metal finishing is one of the most highly regulated industries due to chemicals that are used in the processes. The implementation of the new waste water treatment system allows APT to safely remove chemicals from the water and reach a safe PH balance before it being released into the Milwaukee sewer system. Advanced Plating Technologies looks forward to the new opportunities that this system will bring.
