Envirogen acquires Derwent Water

Derwent Water, which manufactures water treatment plant, ranging from basic water softeners and reverse osmosis equipment to customer specified complex water treatment solutions, substantially increases Envirogen’s presence in the UK industrial water treatment and filtration market.

The Envirogen Group already includes Puresep Technologies and Environmental Water Systems (UK) in Europe and Envirogen Technologies Inc in the US.

“This acquisition combines 21st century technologies, an experienced team, a solid and broad customer mix, secure income and a robust platform for growth. We look forward to strengthening and consolidating Envirogen’s position in what is one of the most fragmented water markets in the world at a time when demand in the UK is surging as companies have to adhere to ever more strict environmental, economic and regulatory targets,” said Envirogen CEO of European Operations Vince Payne.

Derwent owner Chris Watkins said: “This is a great next step for the Derwent Water brand and its customers, giving them access to a wider range of technology and solutions and to one of the largest and experienced in-house service teams in the UK. There is no question that the experience of the Envirogen Management team will ensure that Derwent is well placed to meet the current economic challenges to support our customers”

The Derwent division will be headed up by the Envirogen management team.
