Acquisition broadens industrial water capabilities and expands CECO's short-cycle mix.

DALLAS, May 10, 2022  (PRNewswire)  CECO Environmental Corp. (CECO), a leading environmentally focused, diversified industrial company whose solutions protect people, the environment, and industrial equipment, announced it has acquired Compass Water Solutions, Inc. (Compass) a leading global supplier of membrane-based industrial water and wastewater treatment systems that help customers achieve regulatory compliance of water discharge at the lowest lifecycle cost. The transaction adds to CECO's growing industrial water technologies, which is anchored by its Peerless-Skimovex brand.

With this acquisition, CECO expands its addressable industrial water technology market by over $250 million, with expected growth rates over 6% CAGR through 2025 for industrial oily-water and seawater reverse osmosis applications. CECO expects the Compass acquisition to unlock greater value by leveraging CECO's international sales resources, existing US Navy expertise, and global engineering and production footprint. In addition to market growth rates, the expected stricter water discharge regulations coupled with hard-to-attain international certifications are expected to drive higher sales.

"Compass adds critical engineered solutions, and an experienced leadership team, to our growing industrial water capabilities, and we are excited to welcome them to the CECO organization," said Todd Gleason, CEO of CECO Environmental. "CECO has completed three industrial water acquisitions in 2022 and each share our common mission to protect people, the environment, and industrial equipment.  We expect that these businesses, when coupled with our global footprint and leading brands, will continue to drive strong revenue and income growth in this strategic market.".
