Water treatment equipment provider Arvia Technology to unlock further growth via expansion or relocation of its headquarters, new CEO Simon Gatcliffe told Mergermarket.
The Runcorn, Cheshire-based company’s supportive shareholder base, which includes the private equity firm Earth Capital, has the capability to fund the growth.
Arvia has transitioned from a University of Manchester concept to a business with representation in Belgium, China, South Korea and Spain, and a global customer base in multiple market sectors.
The company has units in production for delivery to South America, Europe, the UK, and Asia in the coming weeks. Increasing employee headcount is also on the cards to meet the expected demand for Arvia’s modular Nyex system to reduce hard-to-treat organics, micropollutants and colour.
Arvia’s units use technologies for the treatment of organic contaminants in water using systems that are free from chemical dosing, do not produce secondary waste streams and are low maintenance. Crunchbase reports that Arvia has raised GBP 10.6m to date.
