Severn Trent Services - Apliclor Expands To Meet The Growing Demands For Water And Wastewater Solutions In Spain
Barcelona, Spain – At a recent meeting, the board of Severn Trent Services – Apliclor, a leading supplier of water and wastewater solutions in Spain, has agreed to a range of strategic initiatives to expand the scope and geographic range of its business. Severn Trent Services – Apliclor, which will celebrate its centenary in 2011, will open a new office in Madrid to further develop relationships in the municipal water sector and will also invest in additions to its sales force. The new office and expanded sales force, coupled with the modernisation of the company's chemical production area and the introduction of innovative products, such as TETRA® wastewater filters, reinforces Severn Trent Services – Apliclor's commitment to Spain as one of the most important European markets for Severn Trent Services.
Since its acquisition by Severn Trent Services in 2009, the company has won a number of large contract awards, including an order for the largest electrochlorination plant in Spain. More than 35 percent of these contracts involved projects outside of Spain. This business growth has included solutions delivered to meet increasing demand from Southern Europe, the Near East and North Africa. According to the general manager of Severn Trent Services – Apliclor, Rick Bacon, "Spanish construction companies are involved in water and wastewater projects throughout the world, not just in Spain. North Africa, the Near East, Australia and South America, in particular, represent key areas of business opportunity. Our global experience and our ability to integrate our full line of water and wastewater treatment solutions is a natural pairing with Spanish construction companies expanding business outside the region."
Issues such as water scarcity and increasingly tighter legislation are expected to significantly increase the demand for wastewater treatment products and services. Severn Trent Services – Apliclor's strategic expansion will enable the company to capitalise on this demand and continue the rapid growth of its business.
