Grundfos buys American UV disinfection specialist
06 Jun 12 by desalination
Danish pump manufacturer Grundfos announced on 5 June 2012 that it had acquired Enaqua, a San Diego-based company specializing in ultraviolet disinfection technology and specialized membranes for water purification.
The purchase marks a step toward Grundfos’ ambition of deriving one third of its future turnover from sources other than pump solutions and being a trendsetter in water technology.
Peter Røpke, Grundfos Group executive vice president of business development, commented, “The partnership with Enaqua doubtlessly strengthens us. Most of all because, in the short view, we shall obtain new technology and competence which will, in the long view, enable us to deliver new solutions for water treatment with strengthened focus on sustainability.”
Enaqua, which was founded in 1985, will continue to be managed by Manoj Jhawar, who is the second of three generations of the founder’s family that works at the company.
