30,000 sq. ft. Foundry Supports Company’s Lead Free Initiative, NH Jobs
North Andover, MA – Watts Water Technologies “cut the ribbon” on a multimillion dollar, 30,000 square foot foundry on June 21st, an expansion to the Franklin, NH Facility of one of its operating subsidiaries, which produces products for many of its brands. New Hampshire state and local dignitaries, including Governor Maggie Hassan and Franklin Mayor Kenneth Merrifield, joined officials from Watts Water Technologies, Inc. to celebrate the occasion.
The new Lead Free foundry reflects the company’s commitment to proactively meet the requirements of the “Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act,” which goes into effect in January 2014. The law establishes new limits on the lead content in every pipe, fixture, and fitting used to convey water for human consumption. The company’s new foundry will produce Lead Free products exclusively.
