ATTLEBORO, MA, Issued July 28, 2009 – NewStream is pleased to announce that Andy Harkness has been hired to fill the new role of Antifreeze Recycling Operations Manager at the Company.
NewStream added the position this spring when demand for their antifreeze recycling services increased to a level that demanded the attention of a full-time supervisor. NewStream President, Mike Spoor says, “The antifreeze recycling piece of our business has great potential for us as a Company. There is a growing demand for top-notch antifreeze recycling services in the marketplace, and we’ve worked hard to optimize our system to meet that demand. It’s very important that we have the right team in place to manage the system on a day-to-day basis, and this new position really rounds out that team.”
Andy joined NewStream in May, and is responsible for overseeing the daily operations of the Company’s antifreeze recycling system, with specific tasks ranging from quality control to process optimization. He brings a great deal of experience to his role, having previously managed operations for a company that recycles restaurant cooking oil to manufacture biodiesel fuel for home heating and other applications. Andy also founded his own biodiesel equipment manufacturing company. He holds a BA from Wheaton College.
