Panton McLeod Americas Announces First U.S. Distribution Deal

Partnership with Maher Services to see Pantonite products across New England

Water quality engineering firm Panton McLeod Americas announced the first partnership distribution deal for its Pantonite cleaning products in the U.S. The Denver-based firm signed an agreement with Maher Services, which will distribute Pantonite products across the New England and New York states.

Under the deal, Maher Services will be the first regional U.S. distribution partner for the DWI and NSF-certified Pantonite product line, which is designed to remove iron and manganese biofouling from water storage structures, including towers, tanks and wells. Maher Services will have exclusive distribution and usage rights for Pantonite throughout Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York.

“We’re delighted to have agreed this partnership with Maher Services and look forward to seeing our cleaning products in action across the New York and New England states,” said Iain Weir, president of Panton McLeod Americas.

“When we set up our U.S. division, our mission was to bring these products into the American water industry and to show companies how good they are. Our vision is to see Pantonite become the standard product for cleaning water storage tanks, stripping towers, wells and other facilities across the whole of the country,” added Jim W. Panton, chairman and CEO of the Panton McLeod Group.

The Panton McLeod Group’s other cleaning chemicals have already proven success in the U.K. market, where they are distributed by the European division of Panton McLeod.

“We were very impressed with the Pantonite products when we first saw them, and immediately recognized their potential for the U.S. water sector. They provide a faster and more efficient way to clean stripping towers, wells and other water storage structures—leaving them as clean as possible, so they can operate efficiently and deliver the purest supplies of water,” said Robert Maher from Maher Services.
