This investment follows rapid growth in 2023, during which time FEDCO saw record revenues and booked orders, expanded its workforce by 20%, and expanded its R&D capabilities to develop new desalination technologies. FEDCO also established a subsidiary company in Dubai, UAE, to better serve its customers in the Middle East and Asia.

FEDCO’s founder and CEO, Eli Oklejas, commented, “Our dedication to the environment is not just about the products we create but also how we create them. By keeping our operations in-house and investing in our people, we ensure that every stage of production meets the highest standards, both in quality of production and environmental responsibility. This approach reflects our commitment to the environment, our community, and to delivering quality without compromise.”
