Kemco Systems, the water-treatment company based in Clearwater, Florida, has announced its acquisition of Bob Johnson & Associates, a Houston-based company focused on water-treatment technology and services. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The acquisition supplements Kemco’s water-treatment services capabilities to the industrial markets, while extending a strong wastewater technology portfolio to the clients of Bob Johnson & Associates.

Since 1969, Bob Johnson & Associates has developed specialised expertise in servicing its clients with ion exchange resin regeneration, off-site membrane cleaning and a robust equipment offering through its Unity product line.

The company’s Scale Free line of specialty chemicals includes membrane cleaners, boiler treatment and hot and cold closed loop applications.

“This acquisition will help us better serve our industrial clients with a stronger ability to tend to their daily water purity challenges,” said Tom Vanden Heuvel, CEO of Kemco Systems.

“Partnering with the Bob Johnson team will be recognized as an advantage by our industrial clients as we continue to expand our single source of accountability in solving their issues.”
