A Canadian energy services and water treatment company is opening a new manufacturing facility on a vacant school campus in Deaver.

Ridgeline Energy Services Inc. of Calgary says the facility will manufacturer the company’s storage and other equipment used to treat wastewater generated by industry and energy production.

The facility was previously Deaver’s school campus, with five buildings on seven acres.

“This facility will enable Ridgeline to lower manufacturing costs, accelerate system delivery times and continue the development of our technology,” Tony Ker, CEO of Ridgeline Energy Services, said in a news release. “We look forward to ramping production in our Wyoming facility to support our growth in the coming years.”

Ridgeline is leasing the buildings and land with the option to purchase the facility in the future as land is transferred from the federal government, the company said.

The company said the northern Wyoming facility provides the company access to customers in North Dakota, Colorado, eastern Utah, western Texas and Alberta, Canada. Ridgeline cited Wyoming’s business-friendly climate, lack of a state income tax and the welding program at nearby Northwest Community College as reasons it is opening the facility.

The conversion of this vacant campus into a manufacturing facility “is a testament to the vision and the entrepreneurial spirit that permeates the state of Wyoming,” said Dennis M. Danzik, Ridgeline’s director of engineering and operations.

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
