Headworks® Inc., active in the water and wastewater equipment manufacturing industry, has acquired the worldwide screening and screenings handling operations of Mahr Maschinenbau GmbH, of Vienna, Austria.
Mahr Maschinenbau is a third generation water and wastewater company with strong market penetration in Europe, the Far East and southern Africa.
"This acquisition is in step with our vision to take Headworks global with the finest technology available. Headworks now has the ability to compete more effectively worldwide," said Michele LaNoue, Headworks president.
Mahr will assume the role of consultant, introducing Headworks into his existing client base. Plans are underway to consolidate and expand market presence in areas either not currently served or that need further development.
Headworks has been marketing the Mahr™ Bar Screen in North and South America for eight years. They recently gained international attention with the announcement that they had been chosen to fulfill one of the largest screening contracts ever awarded. They will supply 22 wastewater screens as part of the fulfillment of "Contract 4" of the George W. Kuhn Drain improvements project in Southeast Michigan.
