Katadyn Holding AG acquires stake in AQUAFIDES

November 04, 2009

Expansion at the world’s leading manufacturer of portable drinking water treatment products:

The Swiss company Katadyn Holding AG in Wallisellen is in full expansion and is acquiring a majority stake in AQUAFIDES Switzerland and Germany. With this move, Katadyn, the world’s leading provider of products for portable drinking water purification, is expanding its sphere of operations into the industrial and municipal water treatment sector. 

The company AQUAFIDES was established in 2007. AQUAFIDES’s portfolio includes products for industrial and municipal water treatment on the basis of UV disinfection, ozone oxidation and filtration. In addition, the provision of spare parts and services for new and existing proprietary systems, as well as for the equipment of other manufacturers, constitutes the basis for business.

Up until 1999, Katadyn itself was active in the field of industrial and municipal water treatment using UV technologies. The new generation of systems devised by AQUAFIDES, as well as the development work that has been conducted, have convinced Katadyn to reenter this field. The global distribution network of Katadyn Products Inc. is now to be used to ensure improved access to the international markets.
