U. S. Headworks Company Acquired by Italian Multinational

April 2, 2015
The acquisition provides WAMGROUP with immediate entry into the North American headworks market

Enviro-Care Co. of Rockford, Ill., has been acquired by the WAMGROUP (WAM) headquartered in Modena, Italy. WAM is a multinational company that first entered the conveying market in 1969. WAM expanded into all facets of bulk solids handling equipment and today has thousands of installations worldwide.

WAM’s conveyors found their way into many water and wastewater projects over the years. In 2013, WAM’s growing interest in the environmental sector led to the purchase of SAVI S.r.l located in Mantua, Italy.

Several years ago, SAVI selected Enviro-Care as their sales and engineering partner to introduce their headworks equipment into the North American market. In 2012, the Enviro- Care/SAVI partnership became even closer with a technology transfer agreement that allowed Enviro-Care to manufacture SAVI equipment in the U.S. Enviro-Care Co. has been a provider of custom engineered screening and grit/solids handling equipment to the North American municipal water and wastewater market since 1972.

“This acquisition was a very logical move for WAM and provides them with immediate entry into the North American headworks market,” said Phil Thompson, President of the new Enviro-Care. “Our excellent rep force combined with the SAVI product line and WAM’s manufacturing expertise will make us an even stronger player in this market.”
