Xylem and GE sign multi-region distribution agreement for advanced water and wastewater membrane technology

01 November 2011


Xylem Inc., the global water technology company that recently spun off from ITT Corporation, and GE have announced a distribution agreement effective in key markets throughout Europe and Australia.

Xylem and GE have entered into an agreement for Xylem to become GE’s distribution partner into the public utilities market for GE’s advanced membrane filtration products. Under the terms of the non-exclusive agreement, Xylem will distribute GE’s range of ZeeWeed technologies in Portugal, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. The companies are expected to expand the relationship further in Europe and in countries in Asia and Latin America at a future date. This partnership builds on the success Xylem has had acting as a selling agent for GE’s ZeeWeed products in Spain.

Xylem currently manufactures and sells water solutions products to the water and wastewater treatment market through its market-leading product brands including Flygt, Leopold, Sanitaire and Wedeco. With this partnership, Xylem adds GE’s ZeeWeed microfiltration, ultrafiltration and membrane bioreactor products to its portfolio for customers in designated markets and geographies. The company has manufacturing sites in Europe, Asia and the Americas, and is based in Stockholm, Sweden.

GE ZeeWeed advanced ultrafiltration membranes are pressure-driven barriers to suspend solids, bacteria, viruses, endotoxins and other pathogens from water or wastewater, producing water with very high purity and low-silt density. They can treat surface water, ground water and biologically treated municipal effluent. Nearly 1,000 plants worldwide use this technology to produce superior quality drinking water and to meet or exceed stringent wastewater treatment and water reuse standards.
