Waterlogic Australia announces the acquisition of Billi, a leading manufacturer and distributor of innovative drinking water systems for homes and workplaces. Waterlogic is a leading global designer, manufacturer and distributor of purified drinking water dispensers.
The deal, which will see Waterlogic acquiring 100% of Billi’s business in Australia, the UK and international markets, brings together two progressive organisations with a shared commitment to the provision of high-quality, innovative drinking water products, services and solutions to workplaces, schools, hospitals, food and beverage establishments, and consumers globally.
The UK-headquartered Waterlogic operates through a network of subsidiaries in many international markets, and also has an extensive independent global distribution structure in place, with access to over 50 countries worldwide.
A leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of boiling, chilled and sparkling filtered drinking water Under-The-Sink (UTS) units, Billi is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia with 140 employees across Australia and the UK.
Billi’s award-winning UTS products will complement Waterlogic’s global distribution network, customer base, and purification technologies to accelerate growth in new and existing markets.
Waterlogic Group CEO, Jeremy Ben-David said, “The acquisition of Billi aligns two best-in-class brands with high-end technology, reputation for quality and customer service, and complementary product portfolios. This combination will position Waterlogic as the total water solutions provider and significantly advance our global growth. The transaction is a testament to the accomplishments of Billi, and we warmly welcome their 140 employees to Waterlogic; we look forward to working with Dan Lindsay and the Billi team to enhance our combined portfolio of innovative products and open new channels of distribution globally.”
Waterlogic CEO Australasia, Carl Crowley said, “We have already enjoyed a 15-year partnership with Billi, with units currently in use throughout Australia and the UK. By combining our complementary strengths and capabilities, we will be even more effective in meeting the needs of businesses and consumers globally who rely on access to high-quality drinking water.”
Billi Managing Director, Dan Lindsay said, “Waterlogic is the natural partner to accelerate growth from Billi’s already strong Australian base. The combination of Waterlogic’s well-established global distribution network and Billi’s specialist product range, means that more businesses and homes around the world will enjoy great tasting, filtered drinking water. We are in a stronger position to achieve our growth potential, and we’re excited about the opportunities that lay ahead of us.”
