“As soon as we complete relocation, we’ll stock 2,000 more filters - Milani said in written remarks - We’ll be up and running in the new building at the end of this month”.
Milani cited the county’s business climate and proximity to Filtrec’s customer base as reasons for the expansion. “Delaware County has showed us so much interest and support - Milani said - Delaware County did so great for us. The county and the county’s economic development team are always first in line helping us”.
