Puretec Industrial Water Acquires Layne Christensen DI Service Business in Arizona

Puretec Industrial Water, an industry leader in industrial water treatment solutions, today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire the assets of Layne Christensen’s Arizona based DI water purification and water system maintenance services. Layne Christensen is a publicly held company listed on the NASDAQ exchange and focuses on providing drilling services and related products and services in four principal markets: water resources, mineral exploration, geo-construction services and energy services and production. Layne Christensen’s customers include municipalities, industrial companies, mining companies, oil and gas companies and consulting and engineering firms located principally in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Africa and South America.

Puretec Industrial Water is currently building a state of the art ion exchange regeneration and equipment fabrication facility in Gilbert, Arizona and this acquisition will help build upon Puretec’s existing service offering in Arizona and the Southwest, providing deionization, reverse osmosis systems and service for a host of industrial and commercial water treatment needs.

Puretec’s acquisition of Layne Christensen in Arizona is effective April 1, 2013.

The combination of Puretec’s strong existing customer base in the power, utility, and manufacturing arena with Layne Christensen’s proven track record will be a boost to Puretec’s overall service offering.

“When asked how we are different from Layne Christensen and other DI service providers, or what it is that we can provide that others can’t, our answer is always the same. Puretec provides excellent personalized service that is hard to match” said Jim Harris, President of Puretec. “Being a privately held family owned business for over 4 generations has allowed us to focus on the customer and not the shareholder. The result has been strong customer satisfaction and double digit growth”. About Puretec Puretec Industrial Water, founded in 1965, is a regional leader in ultra pure water solutions including deionization/demineralization, reverse osmosis, and water system maintenance.
