A leading pharmaceutical company, through their appointed engineering partner, has procured a new water treatment system based on sustainable, leading-edge technology for their manufacturing facility in Oss.

The complete system provided will meet the requirements as defined within the US and European treated water guidelines and standards. Project management and execution is ongoing to ensure the required timeline is met to deliver this high value solution in 2016.
