Neptune-Benson acquires Sonitec-Vortisand

Founded in 1986, Sonitec-Vortisand has more than 2500 installations worldwide.

Sonitec-Vortisand’s cross-flow microsand filtration technology will expand Neptune-Benson’s portfolio of filtration and UV disinfection products into high growth industrial process markets.

Neptune-Benson designs and manufactures engineered filtration systems, UV disinfection solutions and related accessories for the aquatics, industrial and municipal markets worldwide. Since 2011, Rhode Island, USA-headquartered Neptune-Benson has been in a partnership with the investment firm Audax Group.

Commenting on the acquisition of Sonitec-Vortisand, Kenneth Rodi, CEO of Neptune-Benson, said: “The acquisition of Sonitec expands Neptune’s presence in the industrial process markets and compliments our ETS UV product line with many applications in industrial process water treatment. The addition of Sonitec fits well with our strategy”.

Denis Deschenes and Maurice Piché, co-owners of Sonitec-Vortisand, added: “The synergies with Neptune-Benson sales network and the depth of Audax Group resources will accelerate the market penetration of Sonitec and provide the company with a strong base in the USA.”
