Sulzer has completed the acquisition of JWC Environmental LLC, the US provider of solids reduction and removal products such as grinders, screens, and dissolved air flotation system for municipal, industrial and commercial wastewater applications.

The acquisition will expand Sulzer’s wastewater treatment offering through complementary equipment and improve its access to the municipal and industrial wastewater market in North America.

Sulzer says that it will strongly pursue and support JWC Environmental’s geographic expansion into markets in EMEA and Asia.

JWC Environmental, which is headquartered in Santa Ana, California and employs around 230 people, will now operate as part of Sulzer’s Pumps Equipment division.
