Evoqua Water Technologies Corp has acquired privately held Pacific Ozone Technology Inc, a manufacturer of advanced ozone disinfection systems, testing products and support services for a wide range of industrial applications.

Benicia, California-based Pacific Ozone Technology serves the beverage, food processing, high purity, textile, ground remediation and aquaculture markets worldwide, offering ozone generator systems, ozone test kits and field service support. The company employs around 25 people and has 5000 installations around the world.

It will become a part of Evoqua’s Products segment, which specializes in water disinfection technologies and global service and support. Evoqua’s disinfection brands includes Wallace & Tiernan® systems, and ETS™, Barrier®, and Delta® UV products.

“The addition of ozone technology to our current offering of disinfection solutions is consistent with our acquisition strategy to broaden our technology offerings and fill current product portfolio gaps,” said Ron Keating, CEO of Evoqua. “We are excited to market Pacific Ozone as an Evoqua brand to our industrial customer base.”

This is Evoqua’s 10th acquisition in the past two years.
