GE, Sealed Air to Bring Water Technology to More Industries
After successful pilot program, GE and Sealed Air's Diversey entered into alliance
GE and Sealed Air’s Diversey business announced an alliance to deliver water and energy management services to Diversey’s cleaning and sanitation customers around the world.
The announcement comes after a successful pilot of the alliance over the past year. Under the terms of the agreement, Sealed Air’s Diversey team will sell and service GE’s water treatment chemicals, water and process equipment, membrane and cartridge filtration products, analytical instruments and energy management solutions.
“The Diversey alliance will bring our leading water portfolio and services to an expanded customer base,” GE Power & Water President and CEO Heiner Markhoff said. “As a leader in the commercial cleaning and sanitation business, particularly in food and beverage processing plants, Diversey is well positioned to connect their customers to our products and services, which will help these customers implement environmentally and cost-efficient water and process technology solutions.”
The announcement reinforces GE’s commitment to improve water reuse, a key commitment of ecomagination, a business strategy to create new value for customers, investors and society by solving energy, efficiency and water challenges.
GE’s water-related portfolio includes the following products qualified under GE’s Ecomagination: ABMet, advanced membrane, desalination, E-Cell electrodeionization system, electrodialysis reversal (EDR), GenGard cooling water solution and ZeeWeed membrane technology.
Diversey is a business unit of Sealed Air Corp. The combination of Diversey and Sealed Air creates a new global leader in food safety and security, facility hygiene and product protection. The alliance with GE also will expand Sealed Air’s operational efficiency offerings, particularly in food and beverage processing plants.
