After making initial inroads into the US through the Water Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii, Calix is forging ahead with this new market. The interest shown and speed of decision to trial our products has been a great initial step for Calix into the huge US market.
Calix is pleased to announce the set up of two new partners in Hawaii and Southern California with Performance Pipeline Technologies, which has been providing the cleaning and inspection services to most of the trenchless lining companies in Southern California since 2002, and Badgley & Associates, which specialises in trenchless pipeline and manhole rehabilitation. We are also in advanced stages of discussions with a new strategic partner for the State of Nevada.
Calix’s first project will be in Southern California and will go live in January. Calix’s Charleston units will dose ACTI-Mag into the city’s sewers to mitigate odours. The customer has trialled various product and technologies to mitigate odour, but has not been successful thus far. ACTI-Mag will now be dosed progressively into each catchment and then also in the reatment plant. This project will provide a great case study to help build Calix’s reputation in the US market.
