Throughout its history, Watts Water Technologies has prided itself on providing plumbing, heating, and water quality solutions that are in full compliance with federal and state mandates. With the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act that took effect on January 4, 2014, Watts Water continued its commitment to compliance when it set to work planning a multi-million dollar lead-free foundry in Franklin, NH.
As an industrial distributor for 65 years, C.H. Reed, Inc. has been providing ideas, concepts and sustainable solutions to help manage issues associated with three key areas of industrial plants: compressed air systems and equipment; assembly tools and ergonomic material handling; paint finishing and fluid handling equipment. Compressed air has always been a strong focus for C.H. Reed, and it’s a common thread running through all of its product families.
This metal fabrication and machining facility produces high-quality precision-built products. Over the years, the plant has grown and there have been several expansions to the current location. The company currently spends $227,043 annually on energy to operate the compressed air system. This figure will increase as electric rates are raised from their current average of 9.8 cents per kWh.
