Reliance Fluid Technologies Starts Production in Michigan to Service Midwest, and Continues Expansion in North East and Canada
Reliance Fluid Technologies, LLC, a leading independent lubricant manufacturer headquartered in Niagara Falls, NY is well underway with phase three of its Northeast & Canada plant expansion along with starting production at its newly acquired/updated Milan, Michigan Midwest region blending plant.
John Garguiolo, President of Reliance Fluid Technologies, said "this expansion will support our ongoing growth while better supporting the growing needs of our client's businesses." After experiencing the efficiencies and product quality of the technology from the ten original 35,000-gallon blenders, Reliance is now adding ten additional 35,000-gallon Pulse Air blenders for a total of 20 at the Niagara facility. Once the ten tanks are installed a second truck scale will be installed to speed up loading efficiency. In addition, Reliance is expanding its laboratory and bringing in new equipment at both locations to help increase its testing capabilities.
The Michigan facility is located at 415 Squires Drive in the City of Milan, South of Ann Arbor. The plant is equipped with multiple 30,000-gallon and smaller capacity blenders to complement Reliance's current business and help it continue to grow. The Milan site is serviced by rail, as is the Reliance facility in Niagara Falls, with the ability to load multiple bulk tankers at once.
Along with opening this new facility, Reliance is adding to its fleet with multiple compartment rail cars and jumbo transport tankers with capacities ranging from 7,000 gallons up to 13,000 gallons. Garguiolo said, "Our goal is to service our customers where they need it and when they need it." He adds, "Reliance has grown from a handful of employees to a staff of over 50. Our team is committed to being the best and take pride in how well we service and partner with our growing clients."
