Putzmeister, Inc. Named Exclusive North American Distributor for AquaJet Systems AB

Sturtevant, WI (September 13, 2005) - Putzmeister Inc. and AquaJet Systems AB are pleased to announce an exclusive agreement for Putzmeister's Water Technology Division to distribute AquaJet Systems line of computerized hydrodemolition machines as well as its related products and accessories. The arrangement between the Swedish owned company and Putzmeister enhances the Water Technology Division product offering which also features Dynajet high-pressure cleaning equipment.

“AquaJet Systems AB is a pioneer in the hydrodemolition business,” comments Putzmeister President & CEO Dave Adams. “It was the first ISO certified specialized manufacturer of hydrodemolition systems and it is represented in over 30 countries around the world. We are fortunate to represent them here in North America.”

Hydrodemolition is ideal for companies who specialize in bridge, tunnel and high surface/concrete demolition work. Implementing the most advanced robotic system and high-pressure water jets, the process removes areas of loose deteriorated concrete from structures like pillars, bridges and dams. It creates a “craggy” surface that is much like the strong bond that is usually achieved by using a jack hammer. However, unlike a jack hammer, AquaJet Systems equipment won't harm rebar or cause microcracks and is less labor intensive.

AquaJet Systems equipment can also be used in concrete restoration jobs and rehabilitation projects as well as for resurfacing and prepping walls before repainting.

Efficient, environmentally safe and user friendly, all AquaJet Systems products are flexible and upgradeable units that are either diesel or electrically powered. Each model comes equipped with a computer control system that enables the operator to use the equipment efficiently while accurately tracking production rates, operating hours and several other critical project attributes. Customized programs tailored to the needs of the operator and the project are also available.

“Like Putzmeister, AquaJet Systems is a company that prides itself on maintaining quality control management from the initial development of the equipment to after sales service,” says Water Technology General Manager Eric Zimmermann. “This distributorship allows us to grow the hydrodemolition business in North America with a premium product line while providing project support, high quality parts and outstanding after sales service.”

Since the company's founding in 1988, customers around the world have turned to AquaJet Systems for hydrodemolition expertise, innovation and performance. Now, North American contractors can reap the benefits, as well.
