KMS acquires Eco-Tec Inc. and to become Koch Separation Solutions
For more than fifty years, Koch Membrane Systems (KMS) has been providing membrane-based solutions to address customers’ filtration needs.
Based on feedback provided by their customers, KMS has now taken the decision to leverage its strong process knowledge and system design expertise to provide more complete separation solutions. KMS has therefore begun the process of transforming its business to acquire new separation technologies.
Manny Singh, President, Koch Separation Solutions writes:
'As an important first step in KMS’ transformation, I am pleased to announce the acquisition of Eco-Tec Inc., an ion exchange company based in Pickering, Canada. Established in 1970 and with over 2,000 systems installed, Eco-Tec Inc. provides proprietary ion exchange-based solutions for a wide range of industries, including chemical recovery and purification, hydrometallurgy, electroplating, biogas treatment, produced water, and amine purification.
'Because both companies seek to create value for customers through a focus on problem-solving, product development, and project delivery, this acquisition is a natural fit. Our complementary technologies have numerous synergies which will be of benefit to our clients.
'As a reflection of our growing expertise in the separations space, I am also excited to announce that KMS will be changing its name to Koch Separation Solutions (KSS) in order to better reflect our new and more expansive vision. While membranes and ion exchange are the two technologies presently offered by KSS, we will continue to evaluate the needs of the market and add additional separation technologies to offer even more comprehensive solutions to our customers.'
Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. will be changing its name to Koch Separation Solutions, Inc. on or about January 1, 2020, retaining the same people, expertise, ownership and address.
