Water treatment suppliers CM Aqua and Ratz Aqua have been obtained by Norwegian tech firm Nofitech Holding.
CM Aqua and Ratz have been co-operating for several years with production at Ratz’ factory in Remscheid, near Düsseldorf in Germany.
“CM and Ratz market and sell their products to more species than the only salmon and this should open further opportunities for Nofitech’s ModulRAS,” said Asbjørn Reinkind, chairman of Nofitech Holding.
The companies will operate independently and CM/Ratz will continue to serve other RAS suppliers.
The main products for RAS-plants are HEX drum filters, GALAXY protein skimmers, Oxywise oxygen generators, and AL2 belt-filters for sludge systems.
CM Aqua, located in Farum, Denmark, is handling sales, service, and support with technical teams in Denmark and Ukraine.
CM/Ratz has delivered more than 600 HEX filters to RAS plants, aquariums, and pools around the world, as well as equipment to de-licing barges and water treatment systems to well-boats.
Nofitech’s ModulRAS facilities have been designed from the beginning for both seawater and freshwater usage and have HEX filters installed in all units. Robert Hundstad, CEO of Nofitech, looks forward to cooperating more closely with the new sister companies and together improve the product range to include other cost-efficient solutions and pre-manufactured modular sections.
Part of the transaction is paid by shares in Nofitech Holding so that the four owners of CM/Ratz become shareholders in Nofitech Holding.
