Butterworth Systems Relocates Headquarters

Butterworth Systems Inc., a world leader in providing marine and food processing industries with specialized equipment for tank cleaning, underwater hull cleaning and oil/water separation, has relocated its corporate and sales offices to a modern threestory office building at 224 Park Avenue, Florham Park, N.J. 07932.

A.J. Kelly, president, announced that the move will allow the company to expand and strengthen its worldwide operations, thereby providing more efficient services to customers in over 60 countries.

Butterworth Systems Inc. officially occupied its new offices on June 6, following a move from Bayonne, N.J., where it had been located since its founding in 1930.

The specialized tank cleaning equipment manufactured by Butterworth Systems has been used widely in the tanker fleets of oil companies and independent owners for nearly half a century. The trademark BUTTERWORTH® is generally synonymous with shipboard tank cleaning procedures to seamen of just about every major maritime nation. In recent years BUTTERWORTH tank cleaning machines have been installed in many of the major breweries and wineries in the USA and abroad.

Over-the-road truckers also employ BUTTERWORTH machines for cleaning tanks between loaded trips with edible food products and other liquid products that move on the highways of America.

In 1970, Butterworth Systems introduced SCAMP® underwater hull cleaning equipment to shipowners to provide a faster, more efficient and lower cost way to remove hull fouling than drydocking a vessel for cleaning only. The SCAMP system for underwater cleaning of a vessel's hull is also enabling shipowners to save operating costs by using less marine fuel when maintaining tight schedules on worldwide trades. The franchise operators of SCAMP hull cleaning equipment are servicing tanker and dry cargo vessels in many of the world's major ports, including both East and West Coasts of the USA, Rotterdam, Singapore, Panama Canal and others. Butterworth Systems also sells a full range of oil/water separators which are used both in marine and shore industries for pollution abatement purposes.
