achieved substantial headway in the region with a growing pipeline
of projects that are contracted, or in late-stage negotiations.

own, and operate as end-to-end solutions will enable our clients to

Southeast Asia. "Asia Pacific serves a critical role in the global
supply chain with over 40% of the world's manufacturing. Vietnam
and Indonesia require effective and optimized water solutions to
balance rapid industrialization with sustainable growth."
The recent success in Indonesia and Vietnam further cements the
company's continuing rise in the Asia-Pacific region as a market
leader. Gradiant has recently announced a major funding round to
