Calgon Carbon acquires Zwicky Denmark and Sweden

Commenting on the acquisition, Kees Majoor, Calgon Carbon’s senior vice president - Asia and Europe, said: “Since the Zwicky companies have been Chemviron Carbon’s exclusive distributor of its activated carbon products and provider of its mobile filter technology through a service center in Kolding, Denmark, the acquisition is an excellent fit with our existing operations. The acquisition is also consistent with our strategic initiatives to accelerate sales growth in Denmark, Norway and Sweden and to expand our service capabilities in Europe.”

Zwicky Denmark and Sweden had sales of €3.1 million in 2008.
