BIO-UV Group and Pinnacle partner up on ozone water treatment

BIO-UV Group has agreed to enter into an exclusive partnership agreement with US-headquartered Pinnacle Ozone Solutions to leverage the company’s QUADBLOCK ozone water treatment products in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Florida-based Pinnacle is one of the largest suppliers of ozone technology in the North American municipal, aquaculture, and industrial markets. Pinnacle’s patented advanced ozone technology will increase BIO-UV Group’s ozone product capacity to >30 kg/h, which will open a much larger market opportunity worldwide.

Reciprocally, Pinnacle will support BIO-UV Group’s strategy to establish its range of water treatment solutions across the North American continent.

France-based BIO-UV Group, a European leader in chemical-free water treatment disinfection technologies, through its network of eight Regional Export Sales Managers and team in France, will market, manufacture under license, and supply Pinnacle’s proprietary QUADBLOCK advanced ozone technology across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific. The partnership will also provide system training, installation, and maintenance services as part of its expanding “Customer First” aftermarket business programme.

“We are delighted to have partnered with Pinnacle to further establish the company’s brand and ozone technology in the global marketplace,” said BIO-UV Group’s Deputy General Manager & Head of Group Sales, Simon Marshall.

“The Pinnacle portfolio perfectly complements our range of water treatment solutions. The combined product range covers the complete spectrum of water and wastewater treatment requirements across a greater range of industries, including aquaculture, municipal, industrial, and leisure.”

CEO Laurent Emmanuel Migeon added:

“We have taken our time to identify the right partner and we feel that the culture, values, and ambition for growth presented by Pinnacle are an excellent fit for BIO-UV Group. In partnership we can leverage the North American market with only a very limited investment.”

BIO-UV Group’s Triogen ozone range is currently geared toward the smaller end of the market, with O3 outputs up to 2kg/h. The QUADBLOCK range will increase this capacity and enable the company to address much larger projects.

Charles “Chuck” Smith, Pinnacle Ozone Solutions’ co-founder and CEO, said:

“Partnering with BIO-UV Group enables us to steer a clear pathway into Europe and beyond while enhancing BIO-UV Group’s reach in North America through our extensive network of sales channels. We both offer premium positioning in the markets we serve and have matching DNA in terms of technology and outlook.”

BIO-UV Group will increase production capacity at its triogen plant in the UK, to deliver Pinnacle products to Europe, MEA, and APAC markets from April 2024. Pinnacle will continue to supply the markets of the USA, Canada, and Latin America.
