Fluitec International, an Atlanta-based manufacturing company established in 1995, has set up shop in St. Petersburg.
Focusing on the power generation market, Fluitec
develops patented and patent-pending products to assist with the efficiency of industrial lubricants.
"We manufacture testing equipment that's used in the petrochemical world, specifically lubricants," says Brian Thompson, executive vice president of operations.
Fluitec technology is used in more than 25 countries across five continents. The company also has offices in Dayton, OH and in Summit, NJ. Their application of contamination control technologies extends fluid life and monitors the best time to change the fluid which results in a positive environmental impact.
In coming months, Thompson says, Fluitec
will be hiring an executive assistant, field service manager, laboratory technicians and additional administrative personnel. Plans call for the office to grow to include 15 people.
