Grundfos to Acquire Water Technology Company MECO

Grundfos to Acquire Water Technology Company MECO
27 September 2021
 

In a move aimed at strengthening its business in the global water treatment market, Grundfos is to acquire Mechanical Equipment Company.

Grundfos, the largest pump manufacturer in the world, will acquire Mechanical Equipment Company, Inc. (MECO), pending regulatory approvals.

USA-based MECO is a world leader in the industrial water treatment market with manufacturing and sales offices in the United States as well as international offices in Singapore and Ireland.

The company has a strong presence in water treatment, and a global leading position in water purification for the pharmaceutical market and the move will expand Grundfos’ water treatment capabilities.

When completed, it will represent the second such transaction since November 2020, when Grundfos acquired EUROWATER, one of the leading suppliers of decentralised water treatment equipment and solutions in Europe.

The transaction is expected to close during autumn 2021.
