H2O Innovation announces acquisition of Genesys for £17m

handshakeH2O Innovation Inc. has completed the acquisition of Genesys Holdings Limited, Genesys Manufacturing Limited, Genesys International Limited and Genesys North America, LLC (collectively “Genesys”), a UK privately-owned group of companies specialising in the development and manufacturing of speciality chemicals dedicated to water treatment for £16.95m.

Genesys develops, manufactures and distributes speciality reverse osmosis (RO) membrane chemicals, antiscalants, cleaners, flocculants and biocides, and offers, through a large distribution network of 70 distributors, a portfolio of over 35 diversified products with unique formulation that are manufactured in its facility located in Cheshire, UK. In addition, Genesys also offers complete laboratory services such as feedwater and pre-treatment tests, membrane autopsies and cleaning program design.

Ted Darton, President and Co-founder of Genesys said: “Through our innovative product line and first-class service, Genesys has become a leading name in the membrane market. All our branded formulations have been developed in-house and are produced at our UK factory in Cheshire. Although Genesys is highly profitable and has grown strongly over the years, we realise that the next stage in growth can only be achieved in combination with a larger organisation.”
