Microdyn-Nadir acquires membrane manufacturer in Italy

By Mary Page Bailey |

Microdyn-Nadir GmbH (Wiesbaden, Germany; www.microdyn-nadir.com), the water treatment business unit of global filtration leader MANN+HUMMEL, announces the acquisition of Oltremare (www.oltremaremembrane.com), a leading European manufacturer of spiral-wound membrane elements. Oltremare, based in Fano, Italy, is known for both the production of custom and private-label spiral products and the distribution of reverse osmosis, ion exchange, and other products used for water treatment and purification.

The acquisition will allow Microdyn-Nadir to expand their wide range of membrane filtration products to provide even more product options to their global customer base. Along with the acquisition of TriSep Corporation (November 2016), the addition of Oltremare expands Microdyn-Nadir capability to provide customized products and solutions.  

“This strategic purchase is a continuation of Microdyn-Nadir’s commitment to service both the Water & Wastewater and Process & Specialties application segments,” said Walter Lamparter, CEO of Microdyn-Nadir. “Adding Oltremare to our team increases our ability to service our customers around the world and continues to accelerate our growth in the water treatment business.” 

Founded more than 25 years ago, Oltremare currently sells most of its products in Europe. The company will continue operating under the leadership of Marco Nava. According to Nava, “I am excited to combine Oltremare’s capabilities with MICRODYN’s global sales organization. I look forward to introducing Oltremare products to companies around the world!”

This transaction is expected to be completed by the end of January. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
