West Chester, Ohio — Contech Engineered Solutions acquired the assets of Filterra Bioretention Systems from Americast, Inc. The purchase includes the Filterra product line and all related intellectual property.

The Filterra system is a stormwater treatment technology that utilizes enhanced bioretention for the removal of pollutants from stormwater. This technology is often used in urban environments and in areas that have embraced Low Impact Development (LID) and Green Infrastructure. The system removes Total Suspended Solids (TSS), nutrients, hydrocarbons, and metals while improving aesthetics. Filterra has been third-party field tested and has earned numerous state and local regulatory approvals throughout the U.S.

The Filterra product line joins Contech's other stormwater management solutions including StormFilter, Jellyfish Filter, CDS, Vortechs, UrbanGreen Rainwater Harvesting, as well as a variety of detention and infiltration solutions.

"This acquisition represents our continued investment in Contech's Treatment Solutions business and growth strategy," said Ron Keating, Contech's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The addition of the Filterra technology to our portfolio allows Contech to continue to provide stormwater solutions for virtually every site, which brings value to our customers."
