PITTSBURGH & PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Evoqua Water Technologies (NYSE: AQUA) has been named the Water Company of the Year by Global Water Intelligence (GWI), the leading market resource for the water industry, as part of the Global Water Awards held in conjunction with GWI’s Global Water Summit.
GWI’s Global Water Awards, voted on by the readers of GWI, honor excellence across the international water industry, recognizing leaders who are moving the industry forward. Evoqua was cited for its transformation from the former Siemens Water business to “undisputed leader in the field of water treatment, the shrewd roll-up of water technology companies, followed by a highly successful initial public offering in 2017, under the leadership of CEO Ron Keating.”
“We appreciate an organization such as GWI and its readers recognizing the great work our approximately 4,000 employees do each day to further our Purpose of Transforming Water and Enriching Life,” said Evoqua’s Keating. “Our vision to be the world’s first choice for water solutions is underpinned by our Values of Integrity, Customers and Performance, so it is gratifying to see the marketplace sees the impact we are making.”
In naming Evoqua Water Company of the Year, GWI said, “By simplifying the company’s internal structure and re-energizing its workforce to engage more closely than ever with industrial and municipal end customers, Evoqua has built a fearsome reputation in the water industry as the king of systems supply, product sales, and service. It enjoys top-tier market positions in a range of industry segments, from electrochlorination right through to biological nutrient removal.
GWI continued: “Evoqua embarked on an ambitious $400 million acquisitions program which culminated in 2017, improving its earnings profile and strengthening its flowsheet by allowing it to enter new adjacencies. With a revitalized culture and a balance sheet to match, the company is delivering on its promises to its customers globally.”
