Although the two companies have customers in common, the acquisition will enable Evac to expand its product portfolio and extend its customer base in three main areas – pipework and fouling systems, hull corrosion protection systems, and ballast water treatment systems based on ultraviolet and filtration technologies. Cathelco’s turnover in the 2016-17 financial year was EUR 31 million compared with Evac’s EUR 105 million.
Tomi Gardemeister, Evac Group CEO and president, commenting on the acquisition, said: "An extended cleantech system offering, together with an enlarged sales and service network, will allow us to offer a more comprehensive range of solutions and services to our customers. This acquisition provides a tremendous opportunity for Evac and Cathelco to work together to become a leader in the field of ballast water treatment systems."
