BWT expands in UK water treatment business

31. July 2010

The Austrian BWT - Best Water-Technology Group has acquired Culligan International (UK) Ltd, a UK affiliate of the US-based Culligan Group. BWT is Europe's leading water treatment company.

BWT – Best Water Technology-Group, Europe´s leading water treatment company, acquires “Culligan International (UK) Limited”, one of the UK affiliate of the US-based Culligan-Group and is now represented in the UK by a wholly owned subsidiary.

Andreas Weissenbacher, CEO explains: “This deal sets one of the last important milestones for BWT´s geographic expansion in Europe. We cordially welcome 160 new employees in the UK to our BWT-family”.

The newly acquired company – from now on “BWT – Best Water Technology UK Ltd.” has its headquarters in High Wycombe near London and owns an assembly and logistic-center in Billingham, Middlesbrough.
 
The company has a good market position in UK in the field of domestic water treatment. Plumbers and builders' merchants are the main customers. The company, which is also active in the sale of water dispensers, will be consolidated from July and will contribute about EUR 7m and a slightly favourable operating result to this year's BWT group results.

This change will allow Culligan to focus and develop its activities of water treatment sales and services to commercial and industrial customers in UK.
