DALLAS — Voltea, which specializes in membrane capacitive deionization (CapDI©) water purification technology, has moved into a larger U.S. headquarters location here as its global orders have increased by 300% over the last 12 months, the company reports.
The new office, manufacturing plant and training center, along with the need to hire engineering and IT staff, reflect the rapid growth of the company, including the release of two products in the last year.
“We’re even further along than we had hoped to be when we opened our U.S. headquarters just two years ago, which speaks volumes about our industrious team and the disruptive technology we’ve developed,” says Voltea CEO Bryan Brister. “Expanding our Dallas facility helps us continue innovating at a pace that is extraordinary in the water industry.”
Voltea says the increase in orders was sparked primarily by two new water purification products: point-of-use system DiUse®, which is popular with restaurants and coffee shops, and point-of-entry system, DiEntry®, which is designed for residential use.
An important part of the Dallas expansion is a training area that will house systems from each of Voltea’s three main product lines: DiUse, DiEntry and the Industrial Series. The company is gearing this area toward distributors, resellers and system integrators, giving them the opportunity to learn about the design and performance of Voltea’s CapDI technology firsthand.
Voltea, which has a European office in the Netherlands, has seen increased sales in the United States, as well as Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Investors in the company include Unilever Ventures, Anterra Capital, Rabobank, ETF, IDO and Detlef Taprogge.
