HF scientific, a Watts brand and a leading global producer of locally made instrumentation, test kits and chemical reagents used for monitoring water quality, has opened its new state-of-the-art headquarters in Fort Myers, Florida.
Located at 16260 Airport Drive, Suite 140, HF scientific’s new design, manufacturing and distribution facility is nearly 35,000 square feet, three times the size of the company’s previous location. The new location houses 57 employees responsible for company operations including design, engineering, manufacturing and shipping of products used for monitoring water quality for drinking water, wastewater and ballast water applications.
“HF scientific proudly expanded its footprint in Southwest Florida with the opening of our new state-of-the art manufacturing facility and global headquarters in Fort Myers,” said Tim Conrad, plant manager for HF scientific.
Charlie Pasquariello, product manager, adds, “In addition to allowing space for HF scientific to expand our operations and manufacturing, the new location offers us greater capacity to recruit highly specialized talent including engineers, chemists and other qualified professionals responsible for producing world-class water monitoring solutions right here in Southwest Florida.”
HF scientific moved its headquarters from Canada to Fort Myers in 1980. The company was acquired in 2005 by Watts, a global leader of water quality solutions for residential, industrial, municipal and commercial settings. Watts was recently named one of America’s Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek magazine for the second year in a row.
