Cott Corporation has announced that its Eden Springs subsidiary has acquired the Watercooler Gigant business of Leylines.
Watercooler Gigant is an e-commerce platform in the Netherlands and supplies bottled water coolers and filtration solutions.
With the acquisition, Eden Springs aims to enhance its position in the Netherlands through the addition of both a new e-commerce channel and approximately 1,800 customers.
“Watercooler Gigant has a strong reputation for quality service across its e-commerce platforms and shares our commitment to organic growth,” said Antonio Alarcon, president of Eden Springs Continental Europe.
“We are excited to welcome the Watercooler Gigant customers to the Eden Springs family, and look forward to providing them with even more products and services.”
The deal comes less than two months after Eden Springs bought Viteau International, a supplier of bottled water and point-of-use filtration services in the Netherlands.
Eden Springs, which was bought by Cott in 2016 for €470 million, supplies water and coffee service solutions to more than 800,000 customers in 18 countries, including a range of bottle-fed water coolers, plumbed-in water coolers and small pack bottles as well as hot beverages solutions.
