Flootech Oy, a company focused on water treatment solutions, has concluded the purchase of the entire Kopar Group water business along with the technologies associated with water cleaning. From now on, customer support will be provided by Flootech.

With this acquisition, Flootech is able to serve its customers better by offering an overall solution covering everything from the water source to its various applications in the industrial and energy sectors and at municipal water treatment plants. The acquisition also supports those expanding Flootech service business operations, where Flootech operates as the customer’s partner throughout the entire life cycle of the plant.

The water treatment technologies purchased from the Kopar Group include drum basket filters, travelling basket filters, coarse and fine screens, sluice gates, as well as their automation. These technologies, originally developed by Rauma-Repola Oy, have a broad international reference strain especially in the pulp and paper industry and at power plants and water intake plants.

“We’re pleased to be able to offer an increasingly comprehensive package from now on and, at the same time, to see to the functionality of our customers’ systems throughout their life cycles. The business acquisition expands the Flootech technology offering and services to a new level,” says Mikko Siivonen, the CEO at Flootech Oy.
