Oldcastle’s acquisition of Hydro International combines two large players in the North American stormwater market.

Oldcastle Infrastructure announced that it has acquired Hydro International.

Oldcastle Infrastructure, a CRH company, is a provider of building materials, products and services for infrastructure projects.

Hydro International is a provider of stormwater products, wastewater treatment products, wastewater services, and data solutions in North America and Europe. Headquartered in Clevedon, UK, and with a sales presence in 19 countries, it has over 40 years of experience and a reputation for engineering excellence and industry-leading product performance.

Acquiring Hydro further enhances Oldcastle’s water treatment solutions offering, bringing product breadth, market expertise, and well-developed R&D capabilities.

“We are continually looking for ways to create value for our customers through innovation and advanced technology. Bringing Hydro into our infrastructure solutions business directly aligns with that approach and further advances our water market strategy,” stated Jason Jackson, president of CRH Infrastructure Products. “As one of the most respected players in the North American and UK stormwater and wastewater markets, Hydro brings extensive market knowledge and strong specification positions that will drive growth for us both in Europe and North America.”

“The opportunities for synergy between Oldcastle Infrastructure and Hydro are tremendous,” said Paul Cleaver, CEO of Hydro International. “Hydro has a legacy of driving innovation and accelerating growth through new products and services development. Combining Hydro’s product expertise with Oldcastle Infrastructure’s commercial platform enables our teams to uniquely solve ever-expanding problems for our customers in the water market.”
