Sedaru Inc. (San Dimas, Calif.) has been acquired by Aquatic Informatics (Vancouver, Canada), and will join Danaher's (Washington, D.C.) Water Quality platform.

The companies say Sedaru’s turnkey software-as-a-service (SaaS) application for water infrastructure asset management and real-time monitoring of water system operations streamlines utility enterprise workflows, unifying disconnected systems and extending the life of water and wastewater system assets such as pipes, valves and pumps.

"We want to congratulate and welcome Paul Hauffen and the team at Sedaru,” says Kevin Klau, VP and group executive of Danaher’s Water Quality platform. “Uniting Sedaru, Aquatic Informatics and Hach's Claros solutions will help provide step-change value to our water utility customers. We will now offer asset and event management solutions to help customers manage aging water system infrastructure alongside our existing portfolio of operations and compliance software solutions."

"We are thrilled to be joining Aquatic Informatics and the Danaher Water Quality platform," says Paul Hauffen, CEO of Sedaru. "We launched Sedaru as the industry's first digital twin for water, validating the market opportunity for organizational workflow and event management software. We're excited to accelerate Sedaru's product plan, strengthen our ability to address regulatory requirements for existing and future customers and realize Sedaru's potential at-scale with Aquatic Informatics."

"I am pleased to welcome Paul Hauffen and the Sedaru team," says Ed Quilty, Aquatic Informatics president. "Sedaru has developed a modern, real-time network intelligence solution that takes water utilities from reactive to preventative operations, and ultimately to predictive asset management in their drinking water and wastewater networks. Pipes, pumps and valves fail, and they are typically under roads, which makes emergency repairs disruptive and expensive. Sedaru gives instant access to key infrastructure information in one easy-to-use interface, providing field maintenance and response crews with efficient and effective plans."
