The city of Galesburg and the Galesburg Business Technology Center (BTC) will host a welcome event for Alan Environmental, one of the newest businesses to locate in Galesburg. The welcome event will be on Wednesday, January 25, 2012, 10:30 a.m., at the Galesburg Business & Technology Center, 2051 Tom L. Wilson Boulevard, Building G on the Sandburg Campus in Galesburg, IL.
Founded by Josh Knuth, Alan Environmental is a specialty chemical company providing green cleaning products and specialized water and waste treatment solutions. The company has already begun operations at the BTC and will be staffed by five employees at this facility. The public is invited to the welcome event.
Mayor Sal Garza, who will be on hand at the event, said "Small businesses are a significant contributor to our economy both locally and nationally, and it’s extremely satisfying to see a small businesses like Alan Environmental choose Galesburg as a home. We know Galesburg is a good place to grow a business and we’re happy to have Alan Environmental as part of the community."
Sherry Foster, BTC Director and Carl Sandburg College Dean expressed the college’s pride in having a former Sandburg student, Knuth, come back to the area from Florida to locate a distribution facility. "Seeing a former student enter the business world and then contribute to the local community is a particularly gratifying new addition to the Galesburg BTC," Foster remarked.
Alan Environmental CEO Josh Knuth noted "the decision to locate at the BTC came about with the help of the city’s EBI Network. They were very proactive in helping me find a suitable location, and also able to provide us with a Business Innovation Grant that will help integrate our inventory and sales systems. They have been extremely helpful in locating Alan Environmental in Galesburg."
