akvola Technologies – The Growth Story Continues
Revenue for the first half of 2018 is at the level of the whole year 2017. The volume of bookings is 6 times larger than the same period last year. The team continues to expand to support growth. The new MicroGas™ bubble generator is ready for launch.
Berlin, Germany – June 21st 2018 – akvola Technologies GmbH, a water technology company providing solutions for the removal of oils, emulsions and suspended solids from hard-to-treat industrial wastewater, reflects upon the continued growth of business.
Matan Beery, CEO of the company, is proud of the team’s achievements during in the first half of 2018: „Increasing the volume of bookings by 600% is only possible with a very talented team and satisfied customers. The Word-of-Mouth effect has had a major influence in the current results with every other purchase order coming from existing customers or their referrals. I’m confident this trend will continue.”
One of the highlights of the last quarter for the company was to see the first plant with the new design up and running (see picture). The ease-of-operation that the new proprietary user interface provides could be put to the test and passed with distinction.

In April 2018, Mario Rizkallal joined the team as VP Sales. He has over 5 years of experience as Regional Manager at Kubota Membrane and holds an master’s degree in Water and Wastewater Engineering from Cranfield University, a renowned European university in the field of water treatment. Throughout the first half of 2018 the team was further strengthened by two application engineers, a production mechanic, a lab technician and an office manager.
