BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gradiant, a global solutions provider for advanced water and wastewater treatment, today announced its acquisition of H+E Group (Hager+Elsässer), an established European water solutions provider with over 100 years of experience in providing end-to-end solutions to advanced manufacturing.

We are thrilled to welcome H+E Group into the Gradiant family. This acquisition aligns with our strategic vision of becoming a comprehensive solutions provider for the semiconductor industry,” said Prakash Govindan, COO of Gradiant. “H+E Group brings to Gradiant deep experience in ultrapure water and wastewater treatment for the semiconductor and advanced manufacturing sector and establishes a firm foundation in the EMEA region. This synergistic collaboration doesn’t just combine our strengths, it accelerates our ability to innovate and adeptly navigate the ever-changing needs of the global industrial water market.”
