E. Hartford’s Eljen Corp. relocates to larger Windsor space
Eljen Corp., a manufacturer of wastewater-treatment systems, has doubled its footprint and moved its East Hartford operations to a factory in Windsor.
The wastewater management firm, which makes septic-system products, prefabricated drainage systems and sand filters, in early April relocated its roughly 40 employees to a 26,000-square-foot factory at 90 Meadow Road, said Scott Moore, a technical specialist for Eljen.
Moore said the Windsor site, not including 20,000 square feet of unused space, has double the footprint of its former location at 125 McKee St. in East Hartford. The company plans to expand into a portion of the unused space at an undetermined time, he said.
The new site, Moore said, will allow Eljen to hire an additional five workers as the business continues to grow across the U.S. and in several other countries. Eljen’s annual revenues were not immediately available Wednesday.
Eljen currently operates in 30 states, Canada, Sweden and Tasmania, an island state off Australia’s southern coast. Moore said the company hopes to branch out into Australia sometime this year.
Founded in 1970, Eljen created the first prefabricated drainage system for foundation drainage and erosion control applications.
Eljen’s staff consists mostly of U.S. military veterans and refugees from Bosnia, Myanmar and other countries, he said.
The company will showcase its newly minted space during an open house on Wednesday, June 5, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
