North East based water and wastewater treatment specialist Conder Environmental Solutions has announced major expansion plans and the formation of a strategic partnership with global industry specialists Canada based Premier Tech.

The partnership between Conder – part of Ireland ‘s EPS Group - and Premier Tech will merge Conder’s reputation for service provision in the UK and Ireland with Premier Tech’s global delivery of exclusive technologies. The combination of strengths will also put the strategic partnership in a strong position as they enter export markets around the world.

As part of the agreement Conder will also be joining forces with EPS Bison to create a market leading offering in Ireland. Through this partnership the company will look to capitalise on recent government regulations for the inspection and upgrade of approx 500,000 defective septic tank systems.

The partnership - which will make the newly branded Conder Aqua Solutions one of the largest provider of water and wastewater treatment products in the UK – is estimated to double business turnover in as little as four years.

Founded over 40 years ago – and boasting Europe’s largest automated GRP manufacturing facility from its plant in Peterlee - Conder already supports a workforce of 89 and shareholders, EPS Group & Premier Tech, expect this to only rise as the company joins the 2,500 strong, $500million turnover, Premier Tech Group.

Plans are already in place to roll out between six and nine new product launches in the next 18 months as the strategic partnership looks to secure market leadership.

For the new Conder Aqua Solutions this will mean an increase in production capacity for tank products into the regulated and non-regulated sectors across the UK. This will start with the introduction of new rotational moulding machinery in the next eight weeks and which will have the plant operating at full production capacity in the early part of 2014.

Speaking about the new partnership, Stuart Wray, Managing Director of Conder Aqua Solutions said: “The joint venture gives Premier Tech an immediate and significant market presence in the UK’s waste and wastewater treatment arena. For us the partnership aligns our business to the industry world leader, meaning we can maximize our innovation, manufacturing and distribution capacity and importantly bring exclusive technologies to the UK market which will firmly position us as a market leader in our field.”

As part of the expansion Conder Aqua Solutions will be launching a new range of innovative and European tested waste and wastewater treatment and rain water harvesting technologies as well as redesigning some of their already leading industry products.

Commenting on the partnership, Premier Tech’s President, Henri Ouellet said: "With Conder’s excellent reputation and service provision and Premier Tech’s exclusive technologies, products and investment backing this partnership is a perfect strategic fit which will accelerate Conder Aqua Solution’s development as a leader in its field”.

Conder Aqua Solutions is based in Peterlee, Tyne and Wear. Premier Tech operates in the global horticultural, agricultural, industrial packaging and environmental sectors. The business operates in 22 countries across the world, has 25 manufacturing sites across the globe and has been trading since 1923.
