Eden Springs Completes Acquisition of Nestlé Waters Direct Businesses

Eden Springs, a leading European provider of water and coffee solutions, has completed the final transaction of the acquisition of five water cooler businesses from Nestlé Waters Direct (NWD), a division of Nestlé Waters. As of 1 February, a portion of the NWD Polish business will transfer to Eden Springs, enhancing Eden’s leadership position across 18 countries in Europe.

The Polish deal forms part of a larger programme for Eden, involving the acquisition of NWD businesses in Germany, Portugal and the Netherlands (December 2014) and Russia (January 2015). The entire deal is expected to increase Eden Springs’ revenue by more than 20%.

Raanan Zilberman, chief of Eden Springs, comments: “Over the last year there has been good progress in the integration of the other four businesses and we have found operational synergies as a result, that will allow us to continue to invest in service excellence and innovation. The integration process will now begin in Poland and we expect a similar positive outcome.”

He continues: “We are happy to welcome our new Polish customers and employees into the Eden group. The Polish consumer has for a long time recognised the well-being benefits that come from drinking spring water. Eden has a strong history of serving Poland, having launched our first European operation there in 1998, and customers favor us as a reliable partner. We will do our best to ensure that the former Dar Natury and MySpring® customers enjoy Eden’s great-tasting spring water and our excellent service.”

EdenSpringsHeaderCompressedThe Nestlé acquisition reflects Eden Springs’ confidence in the present and future growth of the European water and coffee market, and sees the business as an opportunity to strengthen its service excellence in providing office drinks solutions.

With over 20 years’ expertise in providing water solutions to over 600,000 offices across 18 countries, Eden enlarged its offer in 2010 to include office coffee services (OCS). This now provides employers with a ‘one-stop shop’ for all their water and coffee solution needs. A strong service culture has helped Eden to grow a large customer base of blue chip organisations, public sector bodies and small- and medium-sized businesses throughout Europe.

Eden Sprinps employs more than 3,500 people and manages a distribution network across the continent, including production facilities, a fleet of more than 1150 service vehicles and 28 local water sources. The scale of operations was achieved through a combination of business entrepreneurship, market expansion, operational excellence, and the execution of over 80 acquisitions of varying sizes since 1998.
