HOUSTON, Feb. 24, 2004 -- Brackett Green USA, a worldwide provider in mechanical water filtration technology, has announced a merger with its subsidiary company, formerly Milwaukee-based Brackett Green WSA, which specializes in debris filters and automatic tube cleaning systems.

The merger makes Brackett Green USA the only North America-based company of its kind.

According to Brackett Green USA President Fred Bryan, the decision was made in October 2003 to formally merge the two companies. This venture both strengthened Brackett Green's market position and immediately improved the company's bottom line by streamlining accounting and overhead costs. The company now has 20+ employees and intends to further expand based on a continuing increase in market share.

"Brackett Green USA acquired WSA in 1999, and we have operated separately since that time, Bryan said. "The way that these two companies compliment each other, with Brackett Green USA's solid standing in screening technology and WSA's condenser protection products, made it beneficial to merge the two. Each company is strengthened by the other, and our sales force can now offer water cooling products from start to finish under one roof. We look forward to a stronger market position and positive effect on our bottom line as a result of the merger."

The merger of Brackett Green USA and WSA reinforces the company's commitment to the water filtration and condenser protection markets. The extensive product line now includes Stop Gates, Bar Screens, Trash Rakes, Water Screens, Fish Screens, Cathodic Protection, Automatic Controls, Trash Baskets, Debris Filters, Automatic Tube Cleaning Systems and Fine Strainers for nozzle protection.

For more than 100 years, Brackett Green has provided innovative water filtration products throughout the world. The ability to call on resources from its European parent company, The Brackett Group, allows BG-USA to respond quickly and knowledgeably to the special needs of the North American market. Bracket Green's water filtration products are manufactured throughout the world and adhere to stringent US, British and ISO quality standards.
