New Australian water and wastewater treatment brand launched
By Inside Waste, Wednesday 06 December 2017
The Hydroflux Group comprises seven companies based in Australia and the UK, specialising in design and construct equipment, processes and operational services in water and wastewater treatment.
Hydroflux EPCO combines wastewater innovator Hydroflux HUBER with EPCO Australia - one the Australia's longest-standing water companies. They will provide a wide range of wastewater treatment technologies, while incorporating EPCO's well-proven technologies used in the municipal, industrial and mining markets.
"The HUBER and EPCO businesses have installation experience and over 1000 references throughout the Australian and Pacific region dating back to the 1960's, as well as exclusive access to the latest world leading wastewater technology and processes," said Adrian Minshull, Hydroflux CEO.
Hydroflux HUBER has been dedicated to providing world-leading wastewater technology and processes to Australian water authorities and councils for many years. They also provide high-performing, energy-efficient equipment and technology for maximising life cycle value, and reducing operational costs.
EPCO Australia has been a leading supplier of clarifiers, anaerobic digester equipment and package sewage treatment plants throughout Australia, PNG and the Torres Strait Islands for over 50 years.
"It is a unique business with outstanding technology that has been well proven. EPCO Australia also designs, manufactures and installs equipment in all categories of the managed water cycle," Minshull said.
"So, combining these two well-known businesses under one banner will enable us to deliver unrivalled experience, expertise, support and services to both existing and new customers. We will continue our exclusive partnerships with HUBER technology, AEROSTRIP and Organica Water.
"It will also enable us to play a bigger role in supporting sewage treatment plant contractors and making further inroads into the mining and resources sectors, which are very strategic markets for the Hydroflux Group.
"In essence, combining Hydroflux HUBER and EPCO Australia under one banner gives the market access to one-stop shop for a complete range of products and services across the entire treatment process."
