GLOBAL WATER TECHNOLOGY ACQUIRES THE CHEMICAL WATER TREATMENT BUSINESS OF THE FORMER BOB JOHNSON AND ASSOCIATES FROM KEMCO SYSTEMS; AFFIRMS COMMITMENT TO GROWTH AND EXPANSION OF FOOTPRINT IN THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES AND TEXAS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
South Holland, Illinois, USA, April 6, 2023 – Global Water Technology, Inc. (GWT), a leader in water and wastewater treatment solutions, announced today the acquisition of the chemical water treatment clients of the former Bob Johnson and Associates from Kemco Systems (Kemco), headquartered in Clearwater, Florida. Texas-based Bob Johnson & Associates (BJA) had been acquired by Kemco in 2019.
Since 1969, BJA has been solving its clients’ difficult water treatment challenges. During its 50 years in business, the company developed specialized expertise in servicing its clients with robust products and service lines. Specifically, its line of specialty chemicals includes a myriad of cooling water, steam boiler, and hot and cold closed-loop treatment solutions.
Evan Gray, Vice President, Corporate Strategy and Commercial Operations, commented, “this acquisition was a natural geographic and cultural fit for GWT, and it’s been a pleasure working with our Kemco counterparts in supporting a seamless transition of service.”
“We want to thank our clients for their partnership, loyalty, and for having entrusted us as your service provider over the years. GWT will continue to provide high-quality solutions and services, bringing value to their organization as a trusted partner.” Said Tom Vanden Heuvel, CEO of Kemco Systems.
The addition of the former BJA chemical water treatment business furthers GWT’s investment in the Southwestern United States. In May of 2022, GWT announced the acquisition of Fort Bend Services, Inc. and the opening of a regional office and distribution center in Houston, TX. These most recent moves, along with strong investment in talented individuals, exponentially complement GWT’s original expansion into the Southwestern market from 2019.
Kyle J. Rossi, Vice President of GWT’s Southwest Region, added, “GWT has committed to sustainably growing the Southwestern region of the company and this addition further proves that commitment. By continuing to bring legacy companies into the GWT family, investing in and empowering the growth of existing staff, and adding talented industry professionals to our growing team, we are on track to accomplish unparalleled regional growth. My team and I are excited to welcome these clients into the GWT family and look forward to working with them to continue providing trailblazing water technology solutions for their critical systems for years to come.”
