The acquisition of Aguapura Aguaviva, S.L is the tenth manifestation of the company’s buy-and-build strategy since the acquisition by Castik, following substantial acquisitions in the UK, Australia, Norway, Denmark, USA and Sweden. Castik believes that this buy-and-build strategy in a fragmented market, coupled with tenacious organic growth in a growing industry with high recurring revenues, can create significant value.
