Clearwater Controls’ solutions allow engineers and operators to analyze and create baseline data on the performance of their pump networks in real time to optimize operations, identify problems, perform money-saving predictive maintenance, and avoid potentially harmful and costly environmental impacts.

Wilson expects a dramatic increase in Clearwater Controls’ business as it develops a greater product range for the DERAGGER+ and expands its global customer base.

We have common values of being customer focused, highly responsive, innovative, collaborative, supportive, and ambitious,” Wilson said. “We will provide Clearwater Controls with resources and expertise to strengthen its business overall.
