JWC Environmental officially enters agreement to acquire IPEC Consultants
JWC Environmental has entered into an agreement to acquire IPEC Consultants to advance its commitment in offering a lineup of screening solutions to its municipal and industrial customer base.
COSTA MESA, CA, Sept. 24, 2015 -- JWC Environmental (JWC), a specialist in solids reduction and removal for the wastewater industry, has entered into an agreement to acquire IPEC Consultants, Ltd. (IPEC), a manufacturer of solids/liquid separation products for wastewater and specialty industrial process liquids. The pending acquisition advances the commitment that JWC has to offering an innovative lineup of screening solutions to its municipal and industrial customer base.
Since 1979, IPEC has developed cost-effective drum screens, sludge thickeners, grit separators, and solids conveyance and dewatering equipment for a diverse range of markets in 47 countries. With these products folded into the JWC brand umbrella, both IPEC and JWC customers now benefit from a larger, more diverse line of waste screening and separation products.
"When JWC introduced the first dual-shafted grinder in 1973 -- our patented Muffin Monster® design -- it established new standards in waste-shredding performance and innovation," said Ken Biele, CEO of JWC Environmental. "Today's debris is tougher and more durable than ever before, and it's critical that customers utilize both dual-shafted grinders and screens together for complete solids preconditioning."
As part of the acquisition, Bert Irwin, founder and owner of IPEC, will join the JWC executive team to support the ongoing business. "We are pleased to become part of such a respected and trusted leader in the wastewater industry," he said. "Their strong global presence, extensive field service network and significant financial resources will allow the IPEC product lineup to better serve a much wider customer base."
