Timeline of
our growth

January 2023

New year, new cycling season
Ekopak is again the proud shirt sponsor of the cycling team Soudal Quick-Step and the women’s team AG Insurance Soudal (both nicknamed “the Wolfpack”). With this sponsorship, we aim to build brand awareness across the globe. This partnership also helps us to create awareness about the importance of water.
Sport is an important aspect at Ekopak and is highly encouraged to our E-team (that is how we nickname the Ekopak workforce). In 2023, we have obtained the Sportlabel from Sport Vlaanderen.

Purchase order from NX Filtration
Ekopak will provide a water treatment installation for NX Filtration’s new plant in Hengelo, the Netherlands. NX Filtration is a global provider of pioneering direct nanofiltration (dNF) membrane technology for pure water. This new partnership is an important step in realising Ekopak’s long-term ambitions in the non-WaaS segment.

Start construction of new
HQ in Deinze, Belgium
The structural works of the new headquarters started. The building will illustrate Ekopak’s vision of ­sustainability. Consequently, it will be completely self-sufficient in terms of water and energy usage. This building will support our future growth. We plan to welcome you into our new building early 2025.

September 2023

Acquisition Global Water & Energy
Ekopak acquires Global Water & Energy (GWE), a private company with headquarters in Bruges Belgium, and branches in Europe, Southeast Asia, and North America. The company is an expert in solutions for industrial wastewater treatment, water reuse, and green energy production. Ekopak is now a full solution partner and global player in water reuse. This partnership enables Ekopak and GWE to meet the industry’s needs and pursue our goal of going towards 100% circular water use. As a consequence, Ekopak is now positioned a responsible and sustainable supplier of mission-critical industrial process water for its customers worldwide.

Opening of ultra-pure process water production plant at Vynova
