Koch Membrane Systems is changing its name to Koch Separation Solutions as the company expands its capabilities and acquires new separation technologies.

Wilmington, Massachusetts-based Koch Membrane Systems has just acquired Canadian ion exchange systems manufacturer Eco-Tec Inc. Eco-Tec’s ion exchange-based solutions will allow Koch Membrane Systems to provide full-scale separation solutions. As a result, Koch Membrane Systems will now operate under the name Koch Separation Solutions (KSS).

“We are excited to add Eco-Tec to Koch Separation Solutions as we seek to expand the capabilities and the solutions we offer to our customers,” said Manny Singh, president of KSS. “We constantly strive to create the greatest value for our customers and the ability to offer full separation solutions through these added ion exchange capabilities will do just that.”

Eco-Tec provides ion exchange-based and other process technology solutions for a wide range of industries, including chemical recovery and purification, hydrometallurgy, electroplating, biogas treatment, produced water, and amine purification.

“I’m proud of the work we’ve done over the last 50 years and I’m thrilled that Eco-Tec will be joining KSS and the Koch Industries family,” said Phillip “Rocky” Simmons, chairman of Eco-Tec Inc. “Eco-Tec is in capable hands at KSS, and this new and exciting chapter positions both Eco-Tec and KSS for continued growth and success.”
