Roxia has successfully marketed Aquachem’s filtration technology to various industries and applications in global markets. Now, with this strategic move, Roxia secures access to Aquachem’s state-of-the-art filter press technology. The new cooperation also allows the two companies to faster develop related customer service and business in general.

“Roxia’s family values and roots in filtration makes it a perfect match with Aquachem. As a company Aquachem have come into a point, where entry to global markets is needed to grow. Roxia is well located globally close to customers and has not only a sales network, but especially capabilities to support users locally,” says James Babbé, founder and managing director of Aquachem GmbH.

Jukka Koskela, CEO and president of Roxia, says: “Strategically, Roxia aims to grow both organically and through acquisitions. Recent success with Roxia SFP, a filter engineered and manufactured by Aquachem, has assured us that the technology and the company itself are truly unique and something we can strongly relate to.”

Roxia, the former Flowrox filtration business, delivers high-tech dewatering, industrial automation, and environmental technologies for the mining, minerals, metallurgy, chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries.

Germany-based Aquachem specialises in the development and production of conventional and fully automated filter presses.
