Littleton, CO, United States, 2010/03/17 - The March on-line issue of ULTRAPURE WATER has an exclusive interview with Paul Turgeon, COO of BWA WATER. The article features Mr. Turgeon's views on the water business. The issue also has technical articles on important water treatment topics - TallOaks.
The March on-line issue of ULTRAPURE WATER journal leads off with an exclusive interview of Paul Turgeon, president and COO of BWA Water Additives (BWA Water). The article provides background about BWA Water, which provides specialty water treatment chemical products used in desalination, municipal, and industrial applications, and then explores Mr. Turgeon’s perspective on the water business. The company, which is a unit of Seera Investment Bank in Bahrain, had 2008 revenues of $130 million.
The interview highlights moves by BWA Water to bring new products to market and the company’s strategy that involves selling some water treatments directly to endusers in the desalination and municipal areas, and also through service companies for products used in industrial water treatment. Other issues touched on by Mr. Turgeon included research and product development strategies, new products, the cost of R&D for successful product introductions, marketing strategies, and business trends.
Mr. Turgeon notes three trends impacting the specialty water treatment business: water conservation and reuse, environmentally friendly products, and the development of new biocides. “Environmental regulations are different around the world. What is green here may not be “green” in Europe or Japan because regulations haven’t been normalized around the world,” he said in the interview.
