Pentair plc announced that it completed the previously announced transaction to acquire Pleatco for approximately $255 million in cash.
Pleatco manufactures water filtration and clean-air technologies for pool, spa and industrial air customers.
“We are excited about the addition of Pleatco as it provides additional aftermarket product offerings for both our pool filtration and industrial air filtration portfolios,” said John Stauch, Pentair president and CEO. “The track record of product innovation by the team at Pleatco aligns with our commitment to deliver smart, sustainable solutions to help our customers make the most of life’s essential resources.”
The acquisition of Pleatco provides Pentair with additional replacement filter products to be sold through Pentair’s existing Pool and Spa distribution channels as well as through Pleatco’s distribution channels.
Additionally, Pleatco brings complementary air filtration products to serve the needs of Pentair’s industrial customers.
“With Pentair’s global presence, we look forward to growing our distribution and sales channels to bring our pool, spa and industrial air filtration technologies to customers around the world," said Seth Soltow, Pleatco president.
