VA TECH WABAG GmbH resulted from the merger in 1999 of the water technology segment of the VA TECHNOLOGIE Group with that of DEUTSCHE BABCOCK. However, the WABAG brand actually dates back to 1924, when Max Reder founded the WABAG Wasserfilter-Bau in Breslau. Moreover, one of the tap roots of the current WABAG extends to the year 1868 and the founding of the Viennese company, Julius Overhoff, which was highly successful with its water treatment activities in the 1930s and in 1987, was integrated into the Austrian SGP AG. The emergence of VA TECH WABAG in 1999 marked the company’s transformation into a global player in the water and wastewater treatment sector with a global network of business units and a comprehensive product portfolio. Following a period of consolidation and change of ownership, WABAG is now active as an international player in key markets. Moreover, in October 2010, the company achieved another milestone in its history with the successful IPO in India of VA TECH WABAG Ltd..

This relatively turbulent history serves to demonstrate that international thought and action, as well as the ongoing acquisition of know-how, represent prerequisites for successful development and global competitiveness. Accordingly, we also wish to be the best possible partner for our customers in years to come.

Dynamism and tradition.

For us, these characteristics are not contradictory, but rather major factors for success. They constitute values that contribute to the optimum implementation of long-term experience and state of the art know-how to the benefit of our customers. Thus the focus on core competences and high-potential, strategic markets constitutes both your and our guarantee of top quality and perfect solutions.

Those that cease to improve, cease to be good.
