April 19, 2023

Mott Corp. reported Mar. 30 that it’s acquired Digested Organics, a Michigan-based engineering company that specializes in water reclamation solutions for waste streams, and manufactures advanced filtration solutions to reduce wastewater disposal costs, reclaim clean water for reuse, and produce valuable co-products.

Digested Organics address global issues, such as water scarcity and groundwater pollution, and helps create of sustainable, circular agriculture. It reports that customized filtratio can dramatically reduce the costs for farmers of disposing of millions of gallons of wastewater by converting them into clean water and products like fertilizer and animal bedding. Digested Organics also provides solutions that facilitate the conversion of organic wastes into renewable energy sources.

Mott already manufacturers filtration and flow-control solutions for the semiconductor, clean energy, aerospace and healthcare industries—and now for water and agriculture as well. This acquisition also grows Mott’s clean energy portfolio, expands its skid manufacturing and electrical engineering capabilities, and welcomes a new business unit focused on water and wastewater.

“Digested Organics is breaking barriers in the water and clean energy spaces, allowing agriculture and food and beverage operators across the country to be more productive and profitable,” says Boris Levin, CEO of Mott. “Digested Organics shares Mott’s culture of innovation and caring deeply for its employees and customers, as well as Mott’s core competencies in design, engineering and project management. We’re excited to bring the Digested Organics team into our Mott family. Employees will benefit from this growth as employee owners in our employee stock ownership (ESOP) program.”

Bobby Levine, CEO of Digested Organics, who will continue to lead the company, adds that, “Mott products help generate green hydrogen, produce semiconductors, and protect satellites in space. They’re now bringing that same precision engineering to the wastewater and water reuse market with the joining of our two companies. We’re confident that under Mott’s leadership, our customers will continue to see the highest quality, innovative solutions they’ve come to expect from Digested Organics, and that our employees will continue to thrive in a creative, collaborative work environment.”
