Evoqua Water Technologies’ Memcor business has been named 2015 Asia Pacific Membrane Filtration Company of the Year by prestigious growth consulting firm Frost & Sullivan. Part of the Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Best Practices Awards, the recognition is based on Evoqua’s extensive 30-year history of innovation and customer focus around the world.

“Spanning across multiple applications, Evoqua’s achievements with its Memcor® membranes are the result of best practices that focus on quality and environmental sustainability in Evoqua’s approach to product, people, and process,” said Jonathan Leong, Frost & Sullivan Research Associate.

“The Memcor group’s experience in water treatment and its remarkable brand recognition have allowed Evoqua to establish itself across major APAC countries such as Singapore, Korea, the Philippines and China. With a dynamic product portfolio capable of competing in various end-user sectors, Evoqua is on the right track in strengthening its position as a leader in membrane technologies.”

Evoqua acknowledged that the award reflects a strong commitment to customers in the Asia Pacific region. “We’ve been here for a long time. We work hard to understand the needs of customers in this region, and our Asia Pacific network delivers solutions that meet those needs now and for years to come,” said Govindan Alagappan, Evoqua’s Director of Sales & Operations, Asia.

Technologies address global scarcity & pollution challenges

A key factor in the award was the success of Evoqua’s Memcor® brand of filtration technologies in meeting the acute water needs of the many underdeveloped and rural communities in the Asia Pacific region.

According to Leong, “The compact size and light physical load of products like the Memcor® CP II Ultrafiltration System cut operating costs for customers and adapt well to the space-constrained settings that prevail in the Asia Pacific Region.”
