Evac’s latest acquisition is Transvac SystemsWritten by Nick Blenkey
JANUARY 18, 2019 — Transvac Systems, a U.K. based specialist in the distribution and servicing of wastewater treatment systems, sanitary systems and ballast water treatment systems has been acquired by Espoo, Finland, headquartered cleantech giant Evac.
The acquisition marks another major step forward for Evac, which expanded its global operations by acquiring leading U.K. marine equipment manufacturer Cathelco in May 2018.
One of Transvac’s key strengths is a long history as a supplier to the Royal Navy in the UK as well as many projects carried out for the offshore oil industry.
“The acquisition of Transvac supports our future growth in the naval and offshore sectors where the company has developed excellent customer relationships and a number of important certifications”, said Tomi Gardemeister, Evac Group CEO.
Transvac was established in 1974 and now employs 15 people at its premises in Ford, West Sussex near the south coast of England, within easy reach of Royal Navy bases in Portsmouth and the Southampton cruise terminal.
“We have been distributors for Evac for 38 years and therefore it is a natural progression to become part of the Evac Group as we are very familiar with their products and methods of operation”, said Martin Lowe, Managing Director of Transvac.
The company has also gained substantial experience in sales of ballast water treatment systems for the retrofit and newbuild markets in the U.K.
At another level, the U.K. pump maintenance center at Transvac for wastewater vacuum collection systems will complement Evac’s existing facility in Cherry Valley, IL/
Transvac’s Field Service capability is also regarded as being a valued commodity. All engineers are Offshore Certified and CONDO approved for global deployment.
