Dresser Roots Strengthens Wastewater Treatment Solutions with Acquisition of ESCOR

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dresser Roots, a division of Dresser, Inc., today announced the acquisition of the assets of ESCOR, a Milwaukee, Wis. based engineering and design firm that provides control systems for use in wastewater treatment systems.

Dresser Roots air and gas moving equipment is used in a wide variety of applications worldwide, including wastewater treatment. With the acquisition of ESCOR, Dresser Roots will significantly expand its controls expertise and position itself as the single source supplier of both blowers and aeration systems for wastewater treatment facilities around the world, said John S. Parrish, president of Houston-based Dresser Roots.

Established in 2001, ESCOR, which is composed of Energy Strategies Corporation and Jenkins Engineering, Inc., is well-respected within the industry and is recognized for its advanced blower/system control scheme that reduces the electrical power requirement of the aeration system in treatment plants. Consulting engineers and wastewater treatment operators find the energy-saving features of the ESCOR control system increasingly important as energy costs rise, noted Mr. Parrish.
