Veolia: Celebrates 20 years in South Africa

This year, Veolia Water Technologies celebrates 20 years of business in South Africa. The company behind some of southern Africa’s most important and forward-thinking water and wastewater treatment plants welcomes this landmark year with a renewed strategic focus serving newfound frontiers and a rapidly expanding geographic footprint.

When Veolia – then Vivendi Water – launched its South African operations by acquiring Chematron, a local water treatment company specialising in the food and beverage industry, the company had a complement of 80 people. Today, this workforce stands at over 700 employees, making it one of the continent’s largest water treatment specialist organisations.

A large number of additional employees based in France further support the organisation’s Ambitions for Africa strategy, which aims to bring cost-effective, reliable and compact treatment solutions utilising the company’s over 350 proprietary technologies to improve access to water and sanitation, optimise water usage among industry, and ensure environmental compliance.

Today, Veolia South Africa – together with its subsidiaries Veolia Botswana and Aqua Services & Engineering in Namibia – deliver complete treatment solutions for potable, process and wastewater treatment applications in municipal; power generation; food and beverage; mining; steel; pulp and paper; oil and gas; tourism; and pharmaceutical industries across Africa through a complete range of products and turnkey services.
