SDS acquires Waterscan’s water recycling business
SDS is delighted to announce our acquisition of the water recycling division of Waterscan Ltd, including Waterscan’s well-established commercial rainwater recycling business and its innovative Intellistorm® smart rainwater management system.
The acquisition is a significant step in SDS’s plans for business growth and will help accelerate the development of our sustainable water management technologies for water recycling and reuse, including Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS).
SDS will take on immediate responsibility for Waterscan’s current and planned rainwater recycling projects covering design, supply, installation and maintenance of commercial greywater and rainwater recycling systems.
Patrick Cullen, Managing Director of SDS Limited, said: “The realities of a climate change emergency demand a committed and determined response to build flood resilience and reduce water consumption.
“We have to change the way we think about sustainable drainage systems and treat rainwater first and foremost as a resource, not as a problem to be managed or mitigated. With climate change predicted to lead to more intense heavy rain storms and flood our priority should be to make use of collected rainwater and prevent it from entering an overloaded sewer network.”
Kevin Reed, Water Recycling Manager at Waterscan, has transferred to SDS in his current capacity and will continue to provide unbroken service to existing Waterscan customers.
