Amplio acquires Environmental Water Systems (UK)

The Amplio Group, an operator and investor in the renewable energy and environmental sectors, has acquired Environmental Water Systems (UK)), a provider of integrated water treatment and purification and wastewater recovery services to both the public and private sectors in the UK.

This signals the continued expansion of Amplio Filtration, a subsidiary of Amplio Group, marking the company’s third acquisition in the water filtration space in the last 12 months. 

EWS will be combined with Puresep Holdings, acquired by Amplio Group in July 2010, to more than double Amplio Filtration’s share of the UK’s food and beverage, healthcare and industrial filtration water market in the next three years. This target would result in Amplio Filtration having a 25 per cent share of the UK market.
EWS is based in Cheddar, has 38 employees and a turnover of more than GBP5m.
Andrea Davi, head of Amplio Filtration, says: “We are delighted to announce Amplio Filtration’s third attractive acquisition in the last 12 months. The addition of EWS is particularly exciting as it extends our customer footprint into the non-discretionary sector of water management in hospitals across the UK, providing us with high quality secure income streams.”
Riccardo Segat, chief executive and founder, Amplio Group, adds: “Amplio Filtration is going from strength to strength and is a growing player in one of the world’s most fragmented water markets. The cross-selling opportunities between EWS and Puresep in the UK and our US filtration business, ETI, are huge. This acquisition further strengthens and develops Amplio Filtration’s scale, geographic reach, technology offering and customer mix.”
