“ETS makes the perfect addition to our growing organization,” said Barry Gertz, Neptune-Benson CEO. “Their reputation in the world of aquatics is unsurpassed and the experience they bring in the industrial and municipal arenas opens up even more growth opportunities for our filtration systems.”
Executives at ETS are equally excited about the relationship and potential for future growth and product development.
“The acquisition of ETS by Neptune-Benson is the next step in our company’s progression and allows us to further our investment in products, people and customers,” said Jon McClean, president of ETS.
According to McClean, the ETS management team will remain intact and the company will continue to operate out of its headquarters in Beaver Dam, Wis.
This is the second acquisition made Neptune Benson in nine months. As part of its strategic growth initiatives, it purchased Lawson Aquatics, a maker of main drain and rim-flow system components, in December 2011.
