Lünen, Barcelona. 21.01.2010. REMONDIS Aqua International GmbH has taken over all shares in the company, OMS-Sacede S.A. As a result of this purchase, which was completed in January 2010, REMONDIS is continuing its expansion on the international water market. The company, which has a workforce of over 150 employees, provides water management services for more than 1 million people living in Spain.
The range of services provided by OMS, which is based in Barcelona, covers all aspects of water supply and wastewater treatment. These include planning and engineering work as well as building and operating facilities for supplying water, treating wastewater, recycling sewage sludge and recovering energy.
OMS is present throughout Spain with its various subsidiaries and associated companies; the main regions where it is active are Catalonia, Valencia and Madrid. The majority of the company's large municipal projects, where it operates various plants, are located in these regions. However, it is also, for example, active in Zamora in the north east of Spain where, as part of a long-term concession model, it carries out wastewater treatment and operates the local sewage network for 130,000 local inhabitants. All in all, OMS provides water management services for more than 1 million people.
Just recently, as part of a joint venture, OMS has won a large-scale project with its partner to set up more than 70 sewage treatment plants in the Pyrenees.
REMONDIS Aqua successfully entered the Spanish market in 2006 when it built and took over the operation of a wastewater treatment facility, with which energy can also be generated, for the company Wild, which produces fruit juices and concentrates in Valencia, a region famous for its orange groves. "By taking over OMS, our company has increased in size in Spain, too, which will open up some promising growth opportunities. Water shortages and the need to implement European regulations are the best preconditions for successfully using REMONDIS' efficient and tried and tested water technologies in Spain," explained Dr Lars Meierling and Sven Averhage, who are responsible for REMONDIS Aqua International, thus emphasizing the importance of the Spanish market.
Over the last few years, REMONDIS Aqua has become one of the leading international water management companies. As a result of these activities, in countries such as Poland, Turkey, Russia and India, more than 9.5 million people, in Germany and abroad, are being provided with the company's water management services. At the end of 2009, REMONDIS Aqua succeeded in concluding its first water management PPP (public private partnership) project in Russia, namely with the City of Arzamas.
Since its foundation in 1934, REMONDIS AG & Co. KG has become one of the leading international companies within the water and environmental service sectors - based on the solid foundations of a family-run business full of tradition. The company group has more than 480 branches and associated companies in 20 European countries as well as in China, Japan, Taiwan and Australia. Across the world, REMONDIS provides professional services for more than 22 million local inhabitants as well as for thousands of businesses.
REMONDIS Aqua GmbH & Co. KG is a leading German provider of contracting solutions within industrial water management and has already implemented numerous industrial projects with partners such as MAN, BASF, Henkel, GEA, Saxonia and Deutsche Nickel. Just recently, REMONDIS Aqua has enjoyed increased international expansion with wastewater projects in Spain, Poland, India and Turkey.
