With the rapid growth of the economy, the Chinese Government has been developing the water treatment industry through various policies and incentives to resolve regional water requirements and to meet the increasing expectations on water quality and demand driven by urbanization and economic development.

United Water has found opportunities in this market for growth, while maintaining the professional and reliable operation of its water plants.  Through this partnership with IMM, United Water will also continue to strive to expand its operations both domestically and overseas.
