Equipment from JWC Environmental LLC

Sulzer Ltd. (Winterhur, Switzerland; www.sulzer.com) announces that it has completed the acquisition of JWC Environmental, LLC. JWC is a leading provider of highly engineered, mission-critical solids reduction and removal products such as grinders, screens and dissolved air flotation system for municipal, industrial and commercial wastewater applications.

The transaction also allows Sulzer to improve its access to the municipal and industrial wastewater market in North America. Furthermore, Sulzer intends to strongly pursue and support JWC’s geographic expansion into markets in EMEA and Asia. Significant sales synergies are expected through growth in JWC’s markets outside North America. JWC will operate as part of Sulzer’s Pumps Equipment division.

The enterprise value of $215 million (CHF $212 million) adjusted for an acquired tax asset corresponds to a multiple of approximately 10x 2018 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA). JWC is headquartered in Santa Ana, California, US, and employs around 230 people.
