Hydroflux has acquired a leading supplier of clarifiers, anaerobic digester equipment and package sewage treatment plants to expand its product range and support treatment plant contractors.
Hydroflux acquired EPCO Australia and plans to continue its strategic partnership between equipment designer and regional water specialist, Simmonds and Bristow.
Adrian Minshull, CEO of Hydroflux, said the Hydroflux Group intended to participate in both the mining and resource sector and to expand its product offering to contractors for the upgrading or construction of municipal sewage treatment plants.
Mr Minshull said, “We are excited about the opportunity to play a bigger role in supporting sewage treatment plant contractors and more actively participating in the mining and resource sector, a very strategic market for the Hydroflux Group.
“EPCO Australia has been a leading supplier of clarifiers, anaerobic digester equipment and package sewage treatment plants throughout Australia, PNG and the Torres Strait Islands for over 50 years and is a unique business with outstanding technology that has been well proven.
“We look forward to investing in and maximising the technology, and incorporating it into our product and solution offering, both in the Australia and around the world.”
The Hydroflux Group comprises seven companies based in Australia and the UK, providing services in water and wastewater treatment and sludge treatment and dewatering.
