Evoqua Water Technologies Ltd and Giotto Water Srl have entered into an exclusive agreement covering the distribution of Evoqua’s Memcor® product range in Europe.
Under the agreement, Giotto will have exclusive rights to market and sell Memcor ultrafiltration and membrane bioreactor (MBR) products in select territories throughout Europe.
“We are delighted to enter into this agreement with Giotto for our Memcor product range,” said Ben Soucy, VP/general manager of Evoqua’s Memcor division. “As a global leader, Memcor has a rich history and strong installed base, especially our MBR offerings throughout Italy. We are excited to leverage the additional local reach and expertise of Giotto within Italy and other European markets we are not currently serving.”
Evoqua has more than 20 MBR installations operating in Italy, including one of the largest in Europe at Santa Giustina in Rimini, treating an average daily flow of 76 million litres.
“With this agreement, Giotto Water completes its products portfolio as a technology partner,” said Enzo Bina, managing director of Giotto Water Srl. “For Giotto Water this agreement is very important, as it allows us to combine our traditional equipment offering with one of the more strategic technologies in the Italian and European markets. The industry leading position of the Memcor membranes, coupled with the proven global references in municipal and industrial applications, will give us the possibility to provide a complete and state-of-the-art, full-service solution to our customers.”
In a separate transaction, Evoqua has sold all the remaining operations of its former Italy business, including customer contracts, to Giotto.
