Evac Group and Uson Marine join forces

Evac Group, provider of integrated waste, wastewater, and water management systems for the marine, offshore, and building industries, has acquired Uson Marine.The acquisition is expected to increase Evac’s market share in dry and wet waste management systems, as well as strengthen the group’s position with regard to small and medium-sized marine and offshore vessels.

Due to the acquisition, customers of both Evac and Uson Marine will benefit from an improved service network and enlarged offering.

After this acquisition Evac Group’s turnover will be over €110m.

Uson Marine provides dry and wet waste management systems, including food waste systems, for maritime and offshore industry customers and has offices in Stockhom, Sweden and Oslo, Norway, as well as representatives in 21 countries on five continents.

Evac recorded almost 40% increase in turnover last year. 'Demand is not just associated with new build vessels, as new, updated equipment is also retrofitted to existing vessels. Uson Marine has extensive experience in dry and food waste retrofit projects for cargo vessels, for example, which supports the expertise of Evac Group,' explains Tomi Gardemeister, president and ceo of Evac Group.

The Evac Complete Cleantech Solution covers all marine and offshore cleantech needs, including vacuum collection and wastewater treatment, dry, wet, and food waste management, and fresh water generation.

'Uson Marine’s offering brings in new, compact units for food and galley waste collection and treatment, as well as different equipment for treating dry solid waste. These systems complement Evac’s existing offering and are an excellent strategic fit,' says Claes Rudling, ceo of Uson Marine, who will continue in his present role.
