Axius Water, the global water quality solutions platform created jointly by KKR Global Impact and XPV Water Partners, has acquired ATAC Solutions Ltd., a UK-based wastewater technology and services supplier.

“Having spent considerable time getting to know the Axius Water team, we are convinced that we found a group of professionals that shares our vision, values our in-house experts, and also cares deeply about serving our customers.”

Founded in 2007, ATAC sells, rents, and services wastewater treatment equipment for solids and nutrient removal applications. It also provides full-service offerings for liquid waste disposal, tankerage, and service of equipment, treatment systems, and facilities. Led by principals Adam Colley and Andrew Turnill, ATAC is currently operating within major frameworks in place at three of the UK’s largest water utilities (Thames Water, Anglian Water, and Southern Water) and recently won an extensive service and maintenance contract with the UK’s largest housing association.

ATAC fits seamlessly into Axius Water with its focus on full-service nutrient removal and will serve as a UK base of operations for solutions offered by the broader platform. Chris McIntire, CEO of Axius, said, “Under Adam and Andrew’s leadership, ATAC Solutions has built a strong business both by using deep technical and application knowledge and by focusing on serving customers. ATAC has a strong reputation as a trusted problem solver. We are lucky to have them join the platform and are excited to bring even more solutions to every part of the UK.”

“We were looking for a partner to help us take ATAC to the next level,” said Colley. “The resources and expertise that Axius Water brings to ATAC will allow us to expand and serve a broader range of customers.”

Added Turnill, “Having spent considerable time getting to know the Axius Water team, we are convinced that we found a group of professionals that shares our vision, values our in-house experts, and also cares deeply about serving our customers.”
