Successful teamwork for the saftey of our drinking water: Environmental laboratory WESSLING and sampling specialist WATERcontrol have worked together primarily on the field of legionella testing for five years. Their customers have been very satisfied with service and quality of the water examinations they offered. In March 2017, the two business partners affirmed and prolonged their excellent cooperation with a new framework agreement valid for another five years.
Water for the human consumption may not contain potentially pathogenic microorganisms. One major risk coming from drinking water is legionella, a type of bacteria that can cause Legionnaires’ disease (or Legionellosis).
According to the German Drinking Water Directive property owners and plant operators are bliged to have their drinking water installations checked for legionella contamination in yearly intervals.
"From the very beginning quality was essential in our cooperation. It was quite clear that the new market called for thousands of legionella tests in short amount of time. We have to control your own processes and co-operate very well with the lab to maintain a high performance standard. Wessling as an experienced environmental lab group was perfect for us.", explains Marcus Pikarek, Chief Operating Officer at WATERcontrol.
Kai Dexheimer, water expert at WESSLING Deutschland adds. "we benefited from the expertise of WATERcontrol, when it coms to technical services to the housing industry and handling mass processes. They are really good at that. We are glad that we will continue the cooperation for at least another five years."
