A strategic merger earlier this year of Christ Water Technologies (CWT), EIMCO Water Technologies (EWT) and EWT’s American counterpart, Enviroquip has resulted in the creation of Ovivo Water .
Ovivo, which stands for ‘Water for Life’ is a new global player in the field of municipal water and industrial water as well as water and wastewater segments.
EWT is a leading worldwide provider of technological, high-performance, economical solutions for water treatment, recycling and purification.
The merged organisations represent more than 200 years of expertise employing a specialist staff force of over 2,400 across the world and creating a global water technology leader with the strengths to build the best water company in the world.
Ovivo will officially launch globally on September 13 and is dedicated to bringing to the market proven technologies as well as the most advanced application of knowledge in the industry with the sole aim to create value in water.
The change to the global group name and the realignment of vision and values will provide the company an opportunity to move forward as the demand for clean water, process water and water treatment increases worldwide.
Ovivo will also look to add the extraction of energy from water and water reuse solutions to its portfolio of core technologies.
Ovivo Water will not only offer clients services, which were previously accessible to them but also the added value of a far greater number of technology solutions backed by global expertise.
The strategy of moving from a series of independent, niche businesses with limited geographic reach to becoming one global player gives Ovivo the advantage of CWT’s expertise in the Ultrapure water market and EWT’s wastewater experience with access to major markets in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas.
Ovivo National Sales Manager – Industrial/Municipal Mr John Koumoukelis says the global strength offered by the new group will complement perfectly the expertise, experience and leadership built up in its Australasian operation over more than 20 years.
The Ovivo name is built around three main values – Enterprising Spirit, Outstanding Global Teamwork and Customer Leading – that deliver great value to all of its stakeholders.
