Trojan Technologies, manufacturer of ultraviolet water treatment solutions, has acquired R-Can Environmental Inc., a producer of ultraviolet equipment in residential water disinfection applications. The combined entity will operate as a strategic business unit of Trojan Technologies.
“We are combining two of the strongest residential teams in advanced
water disinfection treatment – this is exciting for us,” says Rick Kelly, R-Can
president. “Our greatest asset is our skilled group of water treatment
professionals and strong customer base, while Trojan brings to the table
advanced research and development capabilities; the combination will result in
the best of technology and the highest quality customer support.”
R-Can will operate under the Trojan Technologies name in its current
location in Guelph, Ontario, and will focus on its
experience in the residential business. Trojan’s current residential business
will be fully integrated into Guelph operations.
According to Trojan president Marvin DeVries, “We are facing increasing
demand for residential water treatment due to escalating water quality issues
and concerns. This newly combined residential business, with over 50 years of
UV water treatment experience, will position us to expertly meet those
demands.” He adds that Trojan has chosen one of its senior leaders, Ron Braun,
to lead this business unit.
