Bilfinger Water Technologies renamed Aqseptence

“Combining the words ‘aqua’ and ‘separation’, the name evokes associations of our core businesses of water and separation technology,” said Joachim Foerderer, chairman of the management board of the Aqseptence Group. “At the same time it echoes the respect and standing that our employees and internationally renowned corporate brands enjoy among customers and business partners.”

Aqseptence is home to a number of brands including Passavant, Geiger, Noggerath, Johnson Screens, Diemme Filtration, Airvac and Roediger. Diemme Filtration piston and piston-membrane pumps are manufactured for filter press feeding and are suitable for pumping abrasive or corrosive liquids.

Aqseptence says that it is well equipped for the future under its new ownership.

“In Chengdu Environment we have a parent company that fits outstandingly with our products, services and strategy,” said Foerderer.

According to Foerderer, the expertise Aqseptence has in filtration and separation technology meshes seamlessly with its new owner’s operations. “And conversely, Chengdu Techcent’s competence in areas like centrifuge construction and process technology represents a fine addition to Aqseptence’s range of operations,” said Foerderer.

“Together with Chengdu Techcent we will be maintaining the successful course we have pursued to date,” added Foerderer. “The situation augurs well for expanding our business: we will keep extending our operations, strengthening our global presence and continuing our strategy of sustainably profitable growth.”

Aqseptence Group, which has approximately 1600 employees, posted sales of almost €300 million for the last financial year.
