Roth Industries will start producing its double-wall oil tanks in the United States with a new production facility in Watertown, N.Y., to improve service levels by providing faster reaction time and shorter lead time. Roth is investing $10 million in the facility, which is to be finished in 2006.

The second phase of the project will be local production of PEXc tubing, as well as extending and improving the logistical capabilities of the manufacturing plant. In addition, the company intends to manufacture other products from the Roth Group at the Watertown facility.
