Enviro-Care Company acquired by Italy-based WAMGROUP
WAMGROUP has officially acquired Enviro-Care Company, a Rockford, Ill.-based headworks company supplying screening and solids/grit management equipment to the wastewater industry.
ROCKFORD, IL, March 3, 2015 -- WAMGROUP (WAM), a Modena, Italy-based global market specialist of screw conveyors and bulk solids handling & processing equipment, has officially acquired Enviro-Care Company, a Rockford, Ill.-based headworks company supplying screening and solids/grit management equipment to the wastewater industry.
WAM is a multi-national company that first entered the conveying market in 1969. Because of its conveying expertise, WAM's conveyors found their way into many water and wastewater projects over the years. In 2013, its growing interest in the environmental sector led to the purchase of SAVI S.r.l, located in Mantua, Italy.
Several years ago, SAVI selected Enviro-Care as its sales and engineering partner to introduce its headworks equipment into the North American market. In 2012, the Enviro-Care/SAVI partnership became even closer with a technology transfer agreement that allowed Enviro-Care to manufacture SAVI equipment in the U.S.
Enviro-Care has been a provider of custom engineered screening and grit/solids handling equipment to the North American municipal water and wastewater market since 1972.
Enviro-Care Company of Rockford, Ill., is a headworks company supplying screening and solids/grit management equipment to the wastewater industry. The company entered the market in 1972 with a line of grinders designed specifically for pump stations and CSOs. It later introduced a reciprocating rake screen, solids dewatering equipment and conveyors. As North American treatment plants began to recognize the importance of headworks screening, Enviro-Care began its search for higher capture screening equipment.
