Sparkling Spring Water Holdings has announced that it has acquired the Mardeau Eurocup, the Dutch home and office direct delivery bottle water business.

Mardeau, founded 5 years ago by Marijn Marijnen and Ada Marijnen will continue to be managed by members of the Marijnen family.

"We appreciate and wish to thank our many customers and friends as well as the Mardeau employees who so diligently contributed to the success of Mardeau. We wish Sparkling Spring success and look forward to helping them grow the Netherlands market and beyond," stated Jac Marijnen, general manager of Mardeau.

G. John Krediet, Sparkling Spring's chairman, said: "Mardeau, under the leadership of the Marijnen family, has built a reputation for excellent quality and service. We are very pleased to be entering the European market via the acquisition of the Mardeau business which adds a new 'core' market to the SSW Holdings portfolio of home and office bottled water companies."

Krediet added: "We continue to look for acquisitions in new markets and in markets where we already operate that will supplement our business growth."

Holdings also announced that in late June it acquired the assets of Central Washington Water Works that serves about 2,200 customer locations in central Washington State including Yakima and the "tri-city" areas.
