Effective today GEO has completed the acquisition of PRC, a manufacturer of specialty polymers used primarily as coagulants and flocculents in treating waste, drinking and industrial water. PRC will join GEO’s Water Treatment division and will represent a significant extension of GEO’s UltraFloc product category and allow access to new markets and distribution channels.
PRC, started in 1993, has twenty employees and operates a facility in Centreville, Miss., that produces organic polymers, including polydadmac and epiamine products. The acquisition will broaden GEO’s product offering providing GEO’s customers with chemicals that can treat larger quantities of water with lower dosages for a wider spectrum of difficult applications.
Organic polymer usage is one of the fastest growing segments in water treatment. The PRC acquisition will drive GEO’s revenues in this sector of the market.
This is the second acquisition GEO has completed this year.
Please join me in welcoming the PRC team into the GEO organization.
