Headworks International Inc. and Glan Agua Ltd. announced today that the companies have entered into a strategic channel partnership that will aim at winning and implementing wastewater treatment projects in Ireland, merging both parties’ relevant technological and construction solutions and expertise.
The Agreement brings together Headworks International, a global provider of Biofilm technologies for wastewater reuse and treatment including Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR), Integrated fixed film activated sludge (IFAS), Anammox processes, and Glan Agua, a leader in the design, building and operation of water and wastewater solutions for municipal and industrial infrastructures in Ireland and the UK.
“This collaboration will significantly strengthen both of our companies’ presence in the Irish wastewater market, offering an improved and seamless client experience in the execution of wastewater enhancement projects,” said Headworks’ CEO Michele LaNoue about the partnership.

Together with Glan Agua, we offer proven retrofit solutions which increase capacity and improve performance without additional expansion, as well as efficient, easy to operate greenfield plants with smaller than conventional plant footprints. The opportunities to jointly contribute to better water quality while reducing carbon footprint and energy savings is an exciting time,” explained Afnan Din, VP of Global Sales.
“Innovation is Glan Agua’s strong suit” affirms Innovation Manager Dr Fabio Bacci.
“As BDO contractor and process engineering firm we hold an ideal position to introduce technologies to market. Our open innovation strategy revolves around business development alliances to enhance our solutions’ portfolio. Forging a channel partnership with Headworks International is a vibrant example of complementary engineering teams merging expertise and solutions to provide exclusive market offerings. Headworks International are ideal expert partners to Glan Agua; this collaboration will deliver solutions aimed at abating environmental impact caused by construction whist improving quality of effluent and, consequently, Irish ambient water.”
