Wheelabrator Group will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its LaGrange, Ga., facility in September. The LaGrange location opened on Sept. 21, 1987, and it is the home of Wheelabrator Plus, the aftermarket-sales division that provides a full range of services, replacement parts and training. LaGrange is also home to the Wheelabrator Group North American Research and Development Center, along with the company’s Customer Demonstration and Testing Facility and the Equipment Modernization Program (EMP) Team. The EMP Team focuses on providing equipment upgrades that are effective solutions for customers’ requested improvements in productivity and to reduce the costs associated with the operation and maintenance of their existing blasting equipment.

The LaGrange facility will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a luncheon and employee recognition this fall. Wheelabrator will honor another historical milestone in 2008 as the company celebrates its 100th anniversary.
