Partnership to bring water technology to cleaning, sanitation and food and beverage industries
GE and Sealed Air’s Diversey business today announced an alliance to deliver water and energy management services to Diversey’s cleaning and sanitation customers around the world.
Under the terms of the agreement, Sealed Air’s Diversey team will sell and service GE’s water treatment chemicals, water and process equipment, membrane and cartridge filtration products, analytical instruments and energy management solutions.
“The Diversey alliance will bring our leading water portfolio and services to an expanded customer base,” said Heiner Markhoff, president and CEO of water and process technologies for GE Power & Water. “Diversey is well-positioned to connect their customers to our products and services.”
“Diversey is eager to bring GE’s solutions to its customers,” said Diversey president and CEO Ed Lonergan. “Diversey will expand GE’s access to an extensive global customer base looking for ways to protect their assets, drive productivity and meet regulations.”
Today’s announcement reinforces GE’s commitment to improve water reuse. “The companies established a pilot program in 2010 to demonstrate the link between water treatment and cleaning and sanitation processes. The result was strong customer response following demonstrable improvements in water use and conservation as well as the overall efficiency of customer operations,” said Lonergan.
