The systems, which range from standard wastewater samplers to integrated systems with guaranteed measurement accuracy, is complemented by service and maintenance. The offering includes customised solutions to water municipalities, laboratories and industrial end-users. The main market is in the Benelux region, and Efcon Water is also represented internationally by a number of distributors. The company has nine employees and is based in Vianen, the Netherlands.

The closing took place on 4 March, and Efcon Water will be included in Indutrade's Business Area Benelux. As an add-on to the Hitma Group, the companies’ combined product offerings will provide growth opportunities as they complement and strengthen each other. Hitma Group has been a part of Indutrade since 1988, offering various types of technical solutions such as instruments for measuring pressure, as well as filter solutions for sanitation and cleaning processes.

The acquisition is Indutrade’s fifth in 2021 and is expected to have a marginally positive impact on Indutrade's earnings per share.
