APTwater, Rochem Merge Companies to Expand Water Technology Offerings

Nov. 10, 2011

The merger creates an advanced water technology company

The combination of APTwater Inc. and Rochem AG unites two water technology companies that deliver reliable, clean water from some of the most challenging resources in the industry.

Rochem, based in Europe, deploys patented membrane modules into integrated treatment systems to clean water that would ruin ordinary membranes. The membranes deployed by Rochem are made by Sepro Membranes Inc., a joint venture between Rochem AG and Sojitz Corp. of Japan.

Sepro, also part of the merger, develops, innovates and manufactures membranes in Oceanside, Calif. Rochem systems and Sepro membranes can be found treating water on ships, landfills, chemical plants and wastewater facilities worldwide.

APTwater, located in California, develops and deploys patented technology to destroy tough-to-treat contaminants that have rendered otherwise valuable water useless, such as pharmaceutical by-products, trace organics, nitrates and hexavalent chromium. APTwater systems can be found creating clean water from damaged groundwater, surface water and wastewater treatment plants.

"Our new company brings together an exciting combination of proven solutions, innovations ready for market and ideas under development," says David Stanton, the chief executive officer of the new enterprise. "And with more of our clients looking to save capital by deploying our solutions through water-by-the-gallon contracts, we now can offer the full service solutions in Europe and North America."

APTwater is headquartered in Long Beach, Calif.  Rochem and APTwater's employees and license partners are located at sales and service centers in North America, Germany, Italy, U.K., Australia and Asia.
