THE NETHERLANDS: Canadian water group buys Sun Spring
"Our strong operating results have allowed us to make yet another acquisition," said Sparkling Spring's president, Dillon Schickli. "The purchase of Sun Spring is especially pleasing since in combination with our Mardeau acquisition this summer we have solidified the Netherlands as a new core territory. We are now in striking distance of achieving a number two position in the Netherlands."
Schickli also said that Sun Spring's production facilities would not only provide access to customers in the Netherlands but also in Germany and Belgium.
In addition to its operations in Canada, SSWH has activities in the UK and in the US, while its Whistler Water, Canadian Spring and Polaris brands are marketed internationally.
