Cemtrex Receives $1.0 Million Contract from Pennsylvania Borough Stewartstown
First Contract Under Recently Acquired Heisey Mechanical Ltd.
Brooklyn, NY, Sept. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- – Cemtrex Inc. (Nasdaq: CETX, CETXP), an advanced security technology and industrial services company, has received a $1.0 million order through its subsidiary, Advanced Industrial Services (“AIS”), for the Pennsylvania Stewartstown Borough Authority, Stewartstown WWTP Sludge Dewatering improvements project.
The project includes, but it not limited to, removing, and replacing the existing boiler, unit heaters, sludge pump, sludge piping, sludge belt press, removing above ground tanks, and renovating the existing boiler room. The contract extends into 2024 and is a multi-trade project in which AIS will utilize internal employees to complete more portions of the project directly rather than subcontract work due to AIS’ expanded service offerings.
“This is our first project win following our acquisition of Heisey Mechanical, a leading service contractor and steel fabricator that specializes in industrial and water treatment markets,” said Saagar Govil, Chairman and CEO of Cemtrex. “Now integrated with AIS, the company continues to provide the water treatment industry with a variety of fabricated vessels and equipment including ASME pressure vessels, heat exchangers, mix tanks, reactors, and other specialized fabricated equipment.
“The acquisition is enabling AIS to expand our fabrication capabilities into new markets, including government and industrial verticals, as well as geographies we are not servicing today. With this contract, we are working to replace and upgrade the existing sludge removal facilities for Stewartstown, a borough in York County, Pennsylvania. Many of the nation’s more than 16,000 wastewater treatment plants are approaching the end of their lifespans and, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers Infrastructure Report Card, the annual water infrastructure capital investment gap is $81 billion. Demand for water treatment systems and services will continue to grow as cities and municipalities across the country work to upgrade their facilities. With its expanded capabilities, we believe AIS can continue to build revenue growth with additional wins in the commercial and industrial water treatment industry, as well as other service industries,” concluded Govil.
