After the purchase of Georgia-Pacific’s paper chemicals business, Ecolab has now acquired RP Adam & Arpal Gulf. Arpal Group has a wellbuilt impression in long-term care and business catering sectors in the UK and Ireland, as well as the advanced hospitality sector in the Middle East. Ecolab provides comprehensive solutions and on-site assistance to promote safe food, maintain dirt-free environments, modifiy water and energy use and better operational regulation for customers in the food, healthcare, energy, hospitality and industrial markets in more than 170 countries around the world.
This agreement benefits Ecolab by bringing RP Adam strength in regional as well as independent customers and in the constant care sector nationally in the UK, along with Arpal Gulf’s skills in commercial catering particularly in the UAE. On the other hand for the Arpal Group, Ecolab’s global stretch in corporate accounts presents outstanding opportunities to expand product and equipment innovation, customer and employee training, as well as strengthen customer service capabilities. The Georgia-Pacific business acquired by Ecolab allocates distinguished products and applications that provide strength, softness and longevity to paper. These products and applications will lift Ecolab’s position in the growing Tissue and Towel, as well as the Packaging and Board segments of the paper industry.
