The Gazette, 30 September 2009
Montreal-based GLV Inc. announced a new round of contracts yesterday worth $39 million awarded by clients in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
Of the total, $30.3 million went to the Eimco waste-water treatment unit and $8.4 million for the pulp-and-paper group. COO Richard Verreault said the depressed pulp-and-paper industry is starting to invest in technology again.
The Eimco contracts include water-intake screening systems and other equipment for Germany, The Netherlands, Canada, the United States, Australia, the United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong.
The new pulp-and-paper unit’s contracts were awarded by U.S. clients mainly, but also Indonesian.
Last week, GLV made a $153- million bid for Austria’s Christ Water Technology, a specialist in water-recycling and desalting equipment.
