Veolia has acquiered Allpipe Technologies, a specialist Perth-based business. The deal will see Veolia water expand its network services activities to Western Australia, strengthening its position as the country’s leader in water solutions.
The strategic purchase will see the two businesses combine assets and people, bringing new opportunities for sustainable water management activities.
As an established provider of sewer network maintenance, Allpipe has more than a decade's experience delivering trenchless solutions for local councils across Perth.
Veolia and Allpipe Technologies together will continue the delivery of these activities, and create new opportunities to drive ecological transformation for customers.
Daniel Spiller, Veolia’s chief operating officer for water, said the purchase of the business marks an exciting step for the company and will increase the scope of Veolia’s services offered in the state.
“With our existing industrial services and waste activities, the expansion of our water business will complete our ability to drive a full complement of solutions for customers,” he said. “Working as part of our network services business, the acquisition will bring new opportunities to drive innovation and whole-of-life network solutions."
The acquisition will see Allpipe’s local assets transfer to Veolia, along with all of its 20 employees, including the former owners who will bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Mr Spiller said that while Veolia is acquiring Allpipe, the relationship will be very much based on a vision to combine local knowledge with global expertise.
“There are strong synergies between our organisations and a shared commitment to building a successful relationship that benefits our customers,” he said. “Veolia already operates similar businesses on the east coast so the opportunity to expand in Western Australia by combining with some local expertise was too good to miss.
“I’m confident it’s the start of a long and successful engagement for Veolia’s water business in Western Australia,” Mr Spiller concluded.
Veolia’s water activities help Australian utility providers and businesses to preserve and secure water supply, through its services in waste and wastewater treatment, asset management, reuse and recycling, and network services.
