Perth based manufacturer, MAK Industrial Water Systems has acquired Queensland based water treatment manufacturer, Clearmake Water Treatment and Recycling Solutions for an undisclosed sum.

Clearmake manufactures water treatment and recycling systems that enable industrial wastewater and harvested storm water to be recycled for commercial and industrial applications. The acquired company has recently worked in the Coal Seam Gas sector, supplying condensate recycling systems to Santos for its GLNG project.

MAK Water said it has seen 50% year on year growth since 2009. Exports account for 15% of the private firm’s trade, with products exported to the offshore gas industry and clients based in Kazakhstan, Mongolia and the Pacific Islands, where MAK Water provides desalination services for the Nauru detention centre.

Andy Byk, CEO of MAK Water, said: The Clearmake range of oily water separators enables customers to discharge trade waste to the sewer system. Clearmake also provides a range of spill detection and control systems for the petroleum and electrical distribution industries. Clearmake’s wash down recycling systems can also enable wastewater from vehicle and equipment wash down bays to be recycled.”
