Neptune-Benson expands with UV acquisition: appoints Australian representative

Neptune-Benson expands with UV acquisition: appoints Australian representative
September 12, 2012

Leading manufacturer of commercial aquatic filtration systems Neptune-Benson, LLC has announced its acquisition of the business of Engineered Treatment Systems LLC (ETS), a leader in Ultraviolet (UV) Technology for aquatic, industrial and municipal applications.

The ETS acquisition follows Neptune-Benson's recent purchase of Lawson Aquatics, furthering progress towards the company's strategic growth objectives.

Neptune-Benson Chief Executivre Barry Gertz explains "ETS makes a perfect addition to our growing organisation.

"Their reputation within the world of aquatics is unsurpassed and the experience they bring in the industrial and municipal arenas opens up even more growth opportunities for our filtration systems. The combined capabilities of our organizations will further increase our ability to deliver quality products and services to our global customer base."

ETS President Jon McClean adds "the acquisition of ETS by Neptune-Benson is the next step in our company's progression, and allows us to further our investment in products, people and customers. This partnering provides ETS with expanded resources for R&D and technical expertise.

"ETS is now positioned for further growth through accelerated product development and a number of other exciting strategic initiatives that have been identified with Neptune-Benson. The management team at ETS will remain to best facilitate a seamless transition and go-forward operations of the company. We are very excited about the opportunities ahead."

While the companies will look for further opportunities to share resources and build synergies, ETS will continue to operate out of their new headquarters facility in Wisconsin, USA.

The proven track record that both companies bring in assisting commercial aquatics installations to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for their patrons is unparalleled in the aquatics industry. ETS has successfully bridged their aquatics success into the industrial and municipal sectors and will utilise this expertise to help identify suitable applications for Neptune-Benson family products as well.

Neptune-Benson has recently installed its award winning Defender® regenerative media filter in aquatic and waterpark facilities across Australia.

Installations include:
• Adventure World, Bibra Lake, Western Australia
• Canning Aquatic Centre, Canning, Western Australia
• Griffith University, South Brisbane, Queensland
• Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Queensland
• University of Queensland, St. Lucia, Queensland

Neptune-Benson has also appointed Brad Weir as Australian representative for their award-winning Defender regenerative media filters. Weir is well known to in the Australian aquatics sector from his 25 years in a variety of service and manufacturing roles including 16 years as joint owner and director of Hurlcon, as well as serving as President of SPASA NSW.
