Biomin International consolidates into one-stop shop and plans to hire

When it comes to water purification, Biomin International knows what’s in the market and what rises to the top.

It’s
why the Oak Park-based firm created Technofluids North America, a
subsidiary that sifts through all of the water-cleaning products to
find the ones that belong on the top shelf.

“Basically it’s
going to be a one-stop shop for water treatment globally,” says Joseph
P. Cool, international business development/export director for Biomin International. “We’re putting together the best of the best.”

One
of those products, Organoclay, belongs to Biomin International. The
product helps take impurities like oil out of water, making it
drinkable. It has the potential to help a lot of third world countries,
where fresh water is scarce.

The 20-year-old company has five
employees and owns a factory in Oak Park. It hopes to hire as many as
10-20 people within the next few years.
