Subject: GE’s Water & Process Technologies acquisition by SUEZ

Released: September 30, 2017, Boulder, Colorado

We are pleased to announce that GE’s former Water & Process Technologies business – which includes the Sievers® brand – has officially become a part of SUEZ. As a result of this acquisition, a new Business Unit called Water Technologies & Solutions is created within SUEZ, combining its industrial water offering with GE’s Water business.
This combination brings together two leading, highly complementary, global water businesses to create a worldwide leader in water technologies and solutions. Our technologies and solutions will continue to meet, if not better serve, your needs in terms of economic and environmental performance.
With the creation of SUEZ’s Water Technologies & Solutions, you will see no change to the substance of your existing contract(s). While the name of the business will change to SUEZ, the underlying legal entity and associated tax ID# will remain.  In addition, you will continue to experience the high-level quality of service you have come to expect from us. In fact, we will be able to provide you with more competitive and innovative integrated solutions.
Becoming part of SUEZ gives us a stronger global presence and will allow for greater advancement of our high-quality instrumentation, support, and services. We are confident you will find a continued dedication to the quality and service you have come to expect from the Sievers brand. 

We will inform you as soon as possible with any changes which will affect ordering and payment essentials.
