EMM caters to a large base of public and private sector customers, in the areas of water, sanitation and customer relations.

The acquisition of EMM aligns with BUTEC Group’s growth strategy in Africa and the Middle East by combining businesses that are essential for the preservation of the environment through the rationalizing of water and energy resources. It follows the most recent acquisition by BUTEC Group of “Energy Services” businesses of ENGIE Group in Africa, which is also the operator of a proactive energy leak detection and repair project in Lebanon on a network serving nearly 2 million consumers.

Speaking on the occasion, Ziad Younès, Chairman of BUTEC Group said: “Through this operation, the Group is keen to enhance and upgrade its skills in the management of essential services, more particularly in aspects relating to the optimization of water resources and reduction of water stress”.
