Nubian Water Systems acquires UV Guard

Friday, 29 June, 2012

Nubian Water Systems announced yesterday the first in a series of steps to grow its water treatment and recycling business with the acquisition of UV-Guard Australia, an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection technology and services business. Nubian will follow this up with further commercial announcements over the next six months.

The combined entity - Nubian Water Systems - offers products and expertise that help governments, businesses and householders reduce their water footprint. Nubian now offers solutions for treating and recycling rainwater, greywater, stormwater and tradewaste water.

“Combining Nubian’s strengths with UV-Guard’s specialist expertise adds up to a powerful offering,” said Barry Porter, CEO of Nubian Water Systems.

“It means customers can be confident that Nubian will provide them with world-class sustainable water solutions, whatever their location or business challenges.

“Our aim is to fulfil the needs of Australia’s domestic, commercial and industrial sectors.”

Nubian provides water solutions for urban environments including houses, apartments, commercial premises, mine sites and remote accommodation. UV-Guard specialises in water disinfection systems used by local governments, manufacturing and the food and beverage sectors.

Both companies’ customers will now enjoy access to the full range of products and services and benefit from expanded offerings and future innovations to help markets achieve Nubian’s Net Zero Water philosophy to make full use of every drop of water entering a building.

Gary Zamel, Executive Chairman of Nubian Water Systems, commented, “On current trends, demand for fresh water in our major urban centres will outstrip our existing infrastructure’s capacity within the next 15 years.”

“The water crisis is a problem that affects every Australian, and Nubian is right in the middle of this issue with arguably the world’s leading solutions for maintaining water quality and availability.

“Water is increasingly being seen as a valuable commodity, and Nubian is the company that’s keeping fresh water in reach of future generations,” Zamel said.

UV-Guard’s Australian business will be progressively integrated into Nubian’s operations in Sydney following the completion of sale in July 2012.
