Voyager Acquires Additional Equipment, Retains Engineering Firm
Voyager Petroleum Inc. reported that its subsidiary, Monarch Petroleum, Inc., has leased additional processing equipment for its Detroit facility and has retained OZ Packaging and Equipment Company (OZPEC)/Kuchar Consulting International (KCI) out of LaPorte, IN. KCI, sister company of OZPEC, will assist Monarch in machinery design and processes including CAD Design for building layouts, product flow layouts, plant layouts, speed requirements, personnel requirements, efficiency studies, and recommendations for complete line layouts. OZPEC will modify existing equipment to meet Monarch's needs and will also oversee and customize the ongoing installation of electrical, air and water processing systems.
OZPEC will also guide the integration of equipment for Monarch as it has in the past for such companies as Abbott Laboratories, Colgate, and Sherwin-Williams. Under the terms of the equipment lease, Monarch will pay 36 monthly payments and has a buyout option at the end of the term. The Company believes that, with the guidance of OZPEC/KCI, its Detroit facility will have the capacity to process approximately 2 million gallons of used oil per month. Sebastien C. DuFort, Voyager's President stated, "A key focus of the company is not only to identify environmentally conscious methods of processing, but to maximize efficiency of our processing equipment.'' He continued, "We believe OZPEC/KCI, has the expertise in packaging, equipment, maintenance, and plant management to play an integral part in the execution of Monarch Petroleum's business plan." The Company intends to use the plant as a turn-key solution for storing, processing, and bottling reclaimed used oil for use in lubricant oil products that will be sold to the automotive and industrial after-markets.
