Veolia acquires Allpipe Technologies
Jun 07, 2022
Veolia’s chief operating officer for water says Veolia’s acquisition of Allpipe Technologies will be based on a vision to combine local knowledge with global expertise.
Veolia announced on 17 May 2022 its acquisition of Allpipe Technologies, a specialist Perth-based business. As an established provider of sewer network maintenance, Allpipe has over a decade’s worth of experience delivering trenchless solutions for councils across Perth.
The deal sees the expansion of the Veolia water network services, with activities to begin in Western Australia, and the subsequent strengthening of the company’s position as Australia’s leader in water solutions.
The strategic purchase will see the two businesses combine assets, furthering the possibility of new opportunities for sustainable water management activities.
Veolia’s chief operating officer for water, Daniel Spiller, says the purchase of Allpipe Technologies marks an exciting step for both company’s and will increase the scope of the services Veolia can offer the state.
“With our existing industrial services and waste activities, the expansion of our water business will complete our ability to drive a full complement of solutions for customers. Working as part of our network services business, the acquisition will bring new opportunities to drive innovation and whole-of-life network solutions.”
The acquisition will see Allpipe’s local assets transfer to Veolia along with all its current employees, including the former owners whose wealth of knowledge will be an asset to Veolia throughout the transition.
“There are strong synergies between our organisations and a shared commitment to building a successful relationship that benefits our customers,” said Spiller. “Veolia already operates similar businesses on the east coast so the opportunity to expand in Western Australia by combining with some local expertise was too good to miss.”
“I’m confident it’s the start of a long and successful engagement for Veolia’s water business in Western Australia,” he said.
Veolia’s water activities help Australian utility providers and businesses to p[reserve and secure water supply, through its services in waste and wastewater treatment, asset management, reuse recycling and network services.
