Parkson And MIOX Partner To Grow Municipal On-Site Generation Water Disinfection Market

Parkson and MIOX announced today the formation of a new partnership to develop the market for on-site generation (OSG) disinfection systems. As an exclusive distribution partner, effective June 1, 2011, Parkson will market and sell MIOX's award-winning line of proprietary hypochlorite and mixed-oxidant systems to municipal water and wastewater customers in the United States, Canada and six Middle East countries.

"We're thrilled to partner with MIOX," says Zain Mahmood, President and Chief Executive Officer of Parkson. "This partnership blends MIOX's proven research & development capabilities with Parkson's application and process expertise. MIOX's innovative and green technology also extends Parkson's reach into the drinking water segment while leveraging our strengths in the Municipal wastewater treatment space."

"We are proud to team up with Parkson," commented MIOX Chief Executive Officer, Carlos Perea. "In addition to having a strong sales and marketing organization, they have a reputation for outstanding customer service and support and they know how to develop the market for advanced products like MIOX. Working together, MIOX and Parkson can have a bigger and faster impact on the municipal water and wastewater treatment markets, accelerating the shift from traditional disinfection methods to a safer, more affordable and more sustainable treatment option."

MIOX's cost-effective and green technology combines salt, water and electricity to replace the need to transport and store bulk liquid or gaseous chlorine. Compared to traditional chemical delivery it is much safer and more cost effective. Chlorine is a proven disinfectant and is used universally to maintain water quality through a water plant's distribution lines. Increasingly, chlorine is being deployed in wastewater plants as well to meet growing demand for water reuse, which must be treated before being applied in landscaping, urban or industrial uses. As exclusive distributor of MIOX, Parkson will provide plants with a proven technology that can save money and improve their process.

Parkson's latest technology offering can meet the disinfection needs of the entire range of municipal treatment plants, by providing three distinct and patented MIOX on-site generation models. Parkson's line of disinfection technology also offers the industry's only self-cleaning cells and low maintenance systems to ensure that plants operate at the highest efficiency possible.
