H2O Offshore, Inc., a leading water treatment equipment provider, has acquired Lafayette-based Owens Manufacturing & Specialty Company, Inc., announced H2O President Jess Fike.
With the addition of Owens' wastewater treatment products to H2O's Crapzapper division, H2O is now a one-stop source for all the unique water treatment needs of the oil and gas industry.
With a well-known presence in the global marine and offshore market, Owens' products will still be available to domestic and international drilling companies and oil and gas operators.
"Both companies are both thrilled and confident in the opportunities this acquisition brings," said Fike. "H2O has a long history of being committed to environmental safety and high-quality work, so it was essential that any partner shares the same values. We are glad to have this well-respected global marine equipment manufacturer join the H2O team."
Owens was among the first to offer USCG-certified marine sanitation devices in the 1960s, and its new line of IMO-certified units represent state-of-the-art technology in maintenance-free marine sewage treatment devices.
