US water treatment technology company Kinetico Inc has bought Nimbus Water Systems, a Southern California-based manufacturer of commercial and residential water treatment products.

Nimbus Water Systems has been designing and manufacturing reverse osmosis water treatment systems for more than 45 years. The company has partnerships with companies in the food and beverage market as well as strong US distribution of its residential reverse osmosis water treatment systems.

“Kinetico was the obvious partner to help Nimbus realize its growth potential,” said Anthony Capone, president of Nimbus Water Systems. “Both Kinetico and Nimbus share a passion for innovative water treatment solutions and have a commitment to service excellence making the combination a natural fit. We’re truly excited to be part of the Kinetico family of companies.”

 “Nimbus is a terrific addition to the Kinetico family with its market-leading reverse osmosis systems and technology,” said Toby Thomas, CEO and president of Kinetico. “Nimbus is one of the pioneers in RO technology. With Kinetico, it will continue to create the most effective and efficient water treatment solutions furthering our strong position in commercial and residential markets worldwide.”

Anthony and Patti Capone will remain with the organization providing leadership and guidance, and Nimbus will continue to operate from its location in Temecula, California.
