Florida-based Primo Water Corporation has announced 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 Defaus while benefiting from being a part of Primo’s global family of brands focused on healthy and sustainable hydration.” said Primo Water CEO Tom Harrington.
Primo’s water solutions expand consumer access to purified, spring, and mineral water to promote a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle while simultaneously reducing plastic waste and pollution. Primo is committed to its water stewardship standards and is proud to partner with the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) in North America as well as with Watercoolers Europe (WE), which ensure strict adherence to safety, quality, sanitation and regulatory standards for the benefit of consumer protection.
