Primo Water Corporation, a provider of sustainable drinking water solutions in North America and Europe, has revealed that Primo Water Europe has acquired Eureau Sources and Defeaus, two French companies specializing in the marketing and packaging of spring water.
Eureau Sources, founded in 1996, specializes in packaging spring water in 5-gallon returnable bottles for refrigerated water coolers. In 2016, the company became the French leader in bottling water in carafes. Eureau Sources draws water from four sources in the Cantal, Indre et Loire, Oise, and Vaucluse regions to effectively cover the entire French territory.
Defeaus was founded in 1996 and has been marketing HERMES spring water since 2015. Located in Hautes-de-France, in the heart of the Oise, the water is bottled on-premise and distributed mainly in the Ile de France region to commercial and residential customers.
“The acquisition of Eureau Sources and Defaus further strengthens Primo’s vision to offer sustainable water solutions to customers and consumers across our footprint. Customers will continue to receive products and services from Eureau Sources and Defeaus while benefiting from being a part of Primo’s global family of brands focused on healthy and sustainable hydration,” said Mr. Harrington.
