Hydro International acquires M&N Electrical and Mechanical Services
Hydro International has announced the acquisition of M&N Electrical and Mechanical Services Ltd (M&N).
The acquisition, completed on 22 July, combines Hydro International’s wastewater grit removal and screening technological expertise with M&N’s exceptional customer support capabilities to become one of the UK’s leading providers of solutions for the wastewater treatment plant headworks.
With around 140 dedicated service professionals operating from five regional offices across the UK, M&N is the nation’s largest provider of screen servicing and maintenance, delivering critical support to treatment plant owners and operators 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Offering servicing, maintenance, refurbishment, equipment hire, parts, spares and new equipment sales, the M&N team expands and develops Hydro International’s service offering in the UK, providing water companies with greater opportunities to improve operational efficiencies and extend the lifetimes of their key treatment assets.
“Becoming part of Hydro International is a great opportunity for us,” Stuart Spinney, M&N general manager, said. “In recent years we’ve made incredible progress and achieved a lot, and this acquisition removes some of the barriers that could have prevented us from growing further. My team and I are looking forward to supporting more customers even more effectively.”
Michael Jennings, chief executive of Hydro International, added: “This acquisition is transformational, both for us and for the UK water industry. We’ve brought together the wastewater product experts and the wastewater service experts to create a business that is uniquely focused on meeting the needs of treatment plant owners and operators. This team is going to create new efficiencies and financial improvement opportunities for water companies right across the country.”
