Total Facility Solutions Opens Raleigh Office to Support Regional Life Sciences and Renewable Energy Growth Opportunities

RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwire - November 18, 2009) - Total Facility Solutions, Inc. (TFS), a specialty contractor and services company focused on critical process manufacturing infrastructure, announced today the opening of a Raleigh, NC office. The 6,400 square foot office, located in the Brier Creek area, will be the focal point for the company's life sciences facilities contracting service division and will also act as the company's regional hub to support its existing renewable energy and technology business throughout the southeast region of the United States.

"While we see this as a great opportunity for TFS across multiple markets we also believe we bring a critical piece to the local infrastructure that further enhances the attractiveness of North Carolina as a regional development center," stated Joe Cestari, president of TFS. "It is a great time to lay more solid foundations in the region. You only have to look at the companies that have already located here in recent times as well as the work being undertaken at places like the Golden Leaf B-TEC Center and NC Solar Center to realize that this is a region full of development potential."

Headquartered in Plano, TX, and operated globally, TFS provides turnkey facilities contracting services including high-purity piping, gas and chemical systems, ultra-high purity water systems, tool and equipment installation, clean utilities, and electrical services to the semiconductor, electronics, nanotechnology, photovoltaic, life sciences, data centers, and renewable energy industries. Founded in 2003 in Dallas, Texas, the company is a wholly owned subsidiary of M+W Zander and currently employs 450 people throughout the United States.

"With the anticipated opportunities for growth in North Carolina, we expect to create approximately 50 new jobs here in Raleigh in the first year and that future expansion will follow over the long term," added Cestari. "While this office serves as a base for our activities in the US in the life sciences space, it will also provide us with a platform from which to operate our global life sciences capability."

The facility is comprised of approximately 6,400 square feet of office space with a 4,000 square foot fabrication shop. The fab shop is equipped with the very latest technology for orbital welding equipment.
