Global water treatment company Ovivo broke ground on its 110,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Hutto on March 9. Located in Hutto’s Innovation Business Park, Ovivo will use the plant mainly to produce ceramic membranes for ltering water and wastewater. “We are bringing membrane manufacturing into America. Previously, we had to buy membranes from places like Japan, Germany and Denmark, but now our technology will be home-grown and homemade,” Ovivo representative Mike Snodgrass said at the groundbreaking. As part of an agreement brokered with the Hutto Economic Development Corp. and approved in August, Ovivo is required to invest $25 million in the site by the end of 2024 and create 96 full-time jobs by the end of 2027.
