The Jones + Attwood brand is synonymous with reliability and robustness, and the extensive range of products includes the well-known and widely-installed Washpactor system, tough, reliable screw classifiers and the high-performance JETA grit trap.

Jacopa Managing Director, Alex Lloyd said: "We are delighted with the new agreement, which strengthens our existing excellent working relationship with Bosker, one of Europe's top names in wastewater treatment. Given the extensive installed base of Jones & Attwood plant in the Netherlands, and the overwhelmingly positive feedback from wastewater treatment service providers about their Jones & Attwood solutions, this is a logical next step in our relationship. We look forward to further success together."

Machinefabriek Bosker en Zonen BV Director, Dick Bosker comments: "The Jones + Attwood brand is justly famed for its reliability and high performance, and we have found that it is very highly regarded in the Netherlands.
