GWTT Announces Acquisition of Carbonworks USA


GWTT today announced that it has acquired Carbonworks USA, LLC (“Carbonworks”), an Atlantic Beach, FL-based provider of water treatment equipment systems, filtration media and associated services across the southeastern United States.

Carbonworks provides GWTT with an immediate presence in Florida to anchor further southeastern US expansion while bolstering the Company’s existing operations in the Mid-Atlantic. GWTT expects to support larger and more complex projects for Carbonworks’ existing markets and customer base through GWTT’s wider set of solutions and services, which includes the cleanup of Superfund and former manufactured gas plant sites, civil and infrastructure dewatering, coal ash pond closure, and treating for emerging contaminants of concern that include PFAS compounds, 1,4-dioxane, hexavalent chromium, and many others, addressing some of the most important water quality challenges in the United States.

Founded in 2018, Carbonworks has been built by a dedicated team of owner-operators who are remaining with GWTT after the transaction.

“GWTT is excited to bring on board the talented team from Carbonworks,” said Richard Worthington, President of GWTT. “This acquisition sets the stage for our medium- and long-term goals focused on revenue growth and market segment leadership, as we continue to expand to meet customer demand for our end-to-end water treatment services.”

“GWTT is a great fit for Carbonworks,” added Carbonworks Co-Founder & President Dave Smith, who will continue on as GWTT’s Director of Business Development, Southeast Region. “By combining forces, our value proposition to customers will multiply significantly. We’ve had a great experience getting to know the GWTT team and we’re excited about the future of this partnership.”
