Aquasource appoints Marc Messerli as COO

Degrémont subsidiary Aquasource, which specializes in ultrafiltration membranes systems for water treatment, has appointed Marc Messerli as its new chief operating officer (COO) as from 1 January 2013.

Messerli succeeds Eric Dehouck, who is now the new COO for Ozonia-Innoplana (Degrémont Technology, Switzerland).

Messerli graduated from Ecole d’Ingénieurs en Génie des Systèmes Industriels in La Rochelle and has served as industrial manager within several large industrial companies, most notably at Airbus, where he was responsible for ramping up the production of the A380 aircraft.

With the strength of that experience combined with the innovation capacity of its team, Messerli’s mission is to pursue Aquasource’s drive to keep its products competitive, to reinforce the level of service for its industrial and municipal customers, and to extend its expertise available for membrane systems internationally .
