New suburban St. Louis location will increase space and improve efficiency
ST. LOUIS, MO — January 12, 2015 — Industrial Process Equipment Group (IPEG), a pump and process equipment company that provides complete solutions for fluid pumping and handling, is moving its St. Louis headquarters to a bigger facility in suburban St. Louis.
IPEG provides its industrial, commercial, sanitary and municipal customers with premier products and equipment, expert repair and custom fabrication of products for their liquid flow and related needs. The company supplies pumps, filters, valves, and manufactures custom-made skids for its clients. As a subsidiary of OTP Industrial Solutions, IPEG provides customers with extensive product lines and technical solutions for pumps, fluid power, power transmission, fluid handling, pneumatic and electrical applications. The growth of both companies created the opportunity for expansion.
The new location, at 6823 Hazelwood Ave., St. Louis, Mo. 63134, officially opens for business on Jan. 14, 2015. The new facility is in a northwest suburb close to St. Louis International Airport.
“We are growing so fast, and the increased offerings that OTP brings to us required a move to a larger, more efficient building,” said Geoff Horton, vice president of operations. “The reason for the move was two-fold: to increase space and to improve efficiency.”
“We are increasing drive-in doors, loading docks and training rooms, and improving the efficiency of our manufacturing and order processing,” Horton said. “For our customers, that means we will be able to offer expanded capabilities. We are doubling our lifting capabilities, which will allow us to fabricate larger, more complex system skids for our customers. We have also purchased additional equipment, which will provide us with new capacities through an in-house balancing system, an automated parts cleaner, and a new paint spraying system. We have also added a clean room where we can assemble and repair actuated valves as well as sanitary pumps and equipment.”
“IPEG has been in the same facility for 50 years, but the growth in the business — and the potential for future growth as part of our affiliation with OTP — necessitated the move,” said Don Short, vice president of sales.
Headquartered in St. Louis, Mo., IPEG has two branch locations in Decatur, Ill., and Calvert City, Ky. Each location has a sales staff, inventory and machine shop. The company, founded in 1947, employs more than 50 people dedicated to providing outstanding support to its customers with their industrial, commercial, sanitary and municipal applications.
