08/02/12 – TerraTherm, Inc., a world‐wide leader in hazardous waste cleanup and MassVentures-backed company, was visited in its new facility by Gardner City Mayor Mark Hawke and his staff, as well as other officials representing various Massachusetts governmental institutions. The group included spokespersons from Congressman John Olver’s Office, Senator Jennifer Flanagan’s Office, the Massachusetts Office of Business Development, the City of Gardner Dept. of Community Development and Planning, Mount Wachusett Community College, the North Central Workforce Investment Board, and a Gardner City Councilor also representing a local bank.
Dr. Ralph Baker, TerraTherm’s Co‐Founder, Chairman and Chief Scientist led the visit beginning with a brief presentation and overview of the firm’s history and accomplishments, followed by a tour of the facility. The visitors were highly engaged and very interested in learning about the technology and the progress TerraTherm has made. Dr. Baker had this to say about the visit, “We were very pleased to host Mayor Hawke and distinguished guests, introducing them to our world‐ class technology and receiving such a nice welcome to Gardner.”
TerraTherm had recently moved from its office in Fitchburg, MA to its new location at 151 Suffolk Lane, Gardner, MA. Their previous location was about one‐third the size of the new facility, and was unable to sustain the company’s rapid growth. TerraTherm recently signed a 10‐year lease on the new building located in the Summit Industrial Park off Route 101. Co‐Founder, President and CEO John Bierschenk added, “We are pleased to be in this wonderful new facility and to have the space necessary to support the growth of our fabrication and professional services teams. We have already begun planning for additional office space to accommodate the hiring of 10 additional people.”
