Email: lynn.zellen@ky.gov


Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is working to advance Kentucky’s economic development efforts by providing information about Kentucky, its business climate and economic development opportunities in the state as part of a delegation traveling to China. Grimes is one of five secretaries of state selected to participate, and the trip is being coordinated and completely funded by the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries.

“Already in my tenure, more than 100,000 new businesses have started up in Kentucky,” said Grimes, whose office oversees all businesses operating in the Commonwealth. “I’m excited and honored to have this unique opportunity to share the advantages Kentucky has to offer to new and expanding businesses.”

During the week-long trip that began May 30, the delegation will spend time in several cities in China and meet with various government and business officials. China ranks as the Commonwealth’s 5th largest export partner, with more than $1.6 billion of Kentucky exports in 2014. The aerospace industry accounted for more than 40% of total Kentucky exports to China last year.

grimes_2Numerous Kentucky companies, including Lexmark, KFC/Yum! Brands, Brown Forman, and Ashland Oil, have offices in China. Ahead of the trip, Grimes visited Birtley Industrial Equipment Corporation’s Lexington headquarters. Birtley, a manufacturer of advanced coal preparation products, was the first Chinese manufacturer to locate in Kentucky, investing approximately $10 million and creating as many as 50 new full-time jobs.

“Since taking office in 2012, I’ve worked with our General Assembly to update our laws and expanded our online business services so that Kentucky truly is open for business,” said Grimes. “Encouraging businesses to make Kentucky their home and growing our economy is the next step.”

CRS REPROCESSING SERVICES HONORED AS ONE OF LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY’S 12 FASTEST GROWING COMPANIES

2014_fast_dozen_logo_4c_173x173Louisville, KY (April 3, 2014) — CRS Reprocessing Services, LLC (CRS), a global provider of fluid reprocessing management, has been recognized as one of the 12 fastest-growing companies headquartered in the Metro Louisville region.

Michael Heath, global general manager for oil and gas services, says receiving the “Fast Dozen Award” is a reflection of CRS’ aggressive growth strategy in the oil and gas market. “Our solids control business in particular is fueling growth at CRS,” he said. “Our acquisition late last year of Kilgore, Texas-based Solids Solutions, and the addition just this year of five new facilities – four in Texas and one in New Mexico – shows how committed we are to growing the business even further.”

065-LSP_9900Heath says new product offerings also keep the company’s growth strategy moving forward. “We unveiled a powerful new centrifuge called The BEAR™ during the DUG East conference last November. It’s generating a lot of positive buzz among operators looking for more efficient solids control.”

To be considered for the Fast Dozen Award, companies must be locally headquartered, at least four years old, privately held and profitable, with a minimum 20 percent annual growth rate for the three previous years.

Presented by EnterpriseCorp, a division of the Greater Louisville Chamber of Commerce, the prestigious award was given to CRS and 11 other local companies during a special reception on March 19, 2014.

GROWTH IN OIL & GAS CONTINUES AT CRS REPROCESSING SERVICES WITH NEW STRATEGIC ALLIANCE AGREEMENT

water-treatment-engineerLouisville, KY (December 3, 2013) — CRS Reprocessing Services, LLC (CRS), a global provider of fluids reprocessing management, has entered into a strategic alliance agreement with AES Water Solutions (AES), a frac water supply and flow back services subsidiary of Houston, Texas-based HII Technologies, Inc.

The alliance benefits AES by enhancing the company’s previous service offerings with access to CRS’ experience in top hole solids control and drilling fluid reprocessing.

CRS REPROCESSING SERVICES UNVEILS NEW CENTRIFUGE TECHNOLOGY FOR OILFIELD SOLIDS CONTROL

crs-the-bearLouisville, KY (November 13, 2013) — CRS Reprocessing Services, LLC (CRS), a global provider of fluids reprocessing management, today unveiled an offering that brings exceptional precision and performance to solids control for U.S. oil and gas operations.

THE BEAR™ is a powerful new centrifuge featuring a proprietary design that includes the industry’s longest bowl configuration for longer dwell time and maximum extraction, and lower side differentials for drier letdown. THE BEAR answers operators’ demands for effective, efficient management of drilling fluids, including top hole, oil-based and water-based muds.

THE BEAR is not only one of the most powerful and efficient centrifuges available today, but also CRS delivers it to the customer’s drilling site on an innovative skid that requires only a small footprint. In addition, CRS’ service includes 24/7 on-site coverage along with remote monitoring and on-site lab capabilities that alert our personnel to changing fluid conditions so rapid adjustments can be made.

“CRS always adapts fluids reprocessing operations to the customer’s exact specifications,” says Michael Heath, CRS’ global general manager for oil and gas services. “We’ve been in the reprocessing business for over 30 years, and we know that cookie-cutter solutions just don’t work for our customers. We designed THE BEAR with their needs in mind, focusing on things like higher horsepower motors, greater bowl volume, and a smaller footprint for the well pad. Ultimately, we think this centrifuge will prove to be a big game changer.”

THE BEAR is making its official debut at today’s opening of Hart Energy’s DUG East conference in Pittsburgh. CRS is also making information about the product available at www.TheBearsOnIt.com.

CRS REPROCESSING SERVICES SUCCESSFUL PROJECT COMPLETION IN CHINA’S SHANDONG PROVINCE

CBP0034431Louisville, KY (December 21, 2011) — CRS Reprocessing Services, LLC (CRS) is continuing to expand its presence in Asia with the successful acceptance of its slurry reprocessing services at Dahai New Energy Development Co., Ltd., based in Dongying City, Shandong Province, China.

Under the long-term agreement, CRS is reprocessing the slurry used in manufacturing silicon wafers at the Shandong Dahai facility, a greenfield project designed to meet China’s growing solar energy needs. The agreement was signed in November 2010, and less than nine months later, the slurry reprocessing facility was up and running. CRS is now reprocessing more than 210,000 metric tons of slurry annually worldwide.

“In just a short period of time, our working partnership with the Dahai team has proven to be extraordinarily successful,” said CRS Chief Executive Officer Scott T. Massie. “Our expertise in slurry reprocessing for the wafer manufacturing industry was important to Dahai. And because CRS specializes in creating fully customized, modular reprocessing infrastructures that deliver optimal quality and consistency, Dahai saw us as an ideal partner for a greenfield project like this.”

“We successfully met Dahai’s specifications for their reprocessed slurry, and this demonstration of our capabilities is leading to additional success. Other companies involved in China’s solar industry are showing acceptance of our model and our high-quality results,” Massie said. Recently, two of China’s top five wafer manufacturers signed agreements for pilot testing of CRS’ proprietary slurry reprocessing service.
