King of Prussia, PA (October 6, 2020) – Quench, a leading provider of filtered water solutions for businesses and dealer partners across the United States and Canada, announced today that it has acquired Pure Water Technology of San Diego (“PWT of San Diego”), a commercial drinking water solution provider based in San Diego, California. This is Quench’s ninth acquisition in the last year.
PWT of San Diego was established in 2009 and was named PHSI Sustainable Dealer of the Year in 2012. The company went on to become one of the most successful dealer partners in the PHSI dealer network, which was acquired by Quench in 2018. This acquisition more than doubles Quench’s presence in the high growth San Diego market.
