Wharton’s Ground/Water Treatment & Technology acquires Carbonworks USA

Wharton-based Ground/Water Treatment & Technology said Friday that it acquired Carbonworks USA, an Atlantic Beach, Florida-based provider of water treatment equipment systems, filtration media and associated services across the mid-Atlantic and southeastern U.S.

GWTT is a full-service provider of end-to-end commercial water treatment services, including process and design engineering, system construction and startup, operations & maintenance, system optimization and equipment sales and rentals.

The acquisition immediately gives GWTT a presence in Florida to anchor further Southeastern expansion while also bolstering the company’s existing operations in the mid-Atlantic through Carbonworks’ Virginia operations facility. GWTT expects to support larger and more complex projects for Carbonworks’ existing markets and customer base through GWTT’s wider set of solutions and services.

Founded in 2018, Carbonworks has been built by a dedicated team of owner-operators who will remain with GWTT post transaction.

“GWTT is excited to bring on board the talented team from Carbonworks,” Richard Worthington, president of GWTT, said. “This acquisition sets the stage for our medium- and long-term goals focused on revenue growth, regional expansion and market segment leadership, as we continue to expand to meet customer demand for our end-to-end water treatment services.”
