EnviroChemie, a leader in industrial water technology solutions, recently acquired Industrial Water Management IWM, a company that provides water treatment and water hygiene services for cooling towers and steam boilers in the pharmaceutical and food industries as well as for hospitals, universities and other institutions. This transaction will give EnviroChemie a permanent presence in Ireland and give Irish customers the potential to benefit from EnviroChemie’s broad range of products and services as well as local support from IWM. IWM's optimal access to pharmaceutical customers is also in line with EnviroChemie's current strategy.
IWM, based in Dublin, specializes in cooling tower, steam boiler and water hygiene services, including legionella control and water chemicals supply. IWM offers its customers the entire range of services including consulting, laboratory analyses, on-site service and training. With 30 employees, IWM generates an annual turnover of approximately $3.7 million.
Jörg Krause, CEO of EnviroChemie Group said, “The acquisition of IWM is an important element of our growth strategy for service offerings. We are broadening the regional scope of our business in Europe and thus further reducing our dependency on individual regions. The open, down-to-earth and innovative corporate culture of IWM fits very well with our culture. We look forward to a successful cooperation.”
Conor O' Donovan, CEO of IWM, said “The high level of competence and diverse experience of the experts at EnviroChemie Group will enhance IWM’s capacity in providing comprehensive support to our customers in Ireland. We are also proud to bring our expertise, specifically in water hygiene and legionella treatment, to the customers of our new colleagues. Many existing and new customers will benefit from the expansion of EnviroChemie Group's range of services with complete solutions for process water and wastewater.”
