The deal was sealed during a four-day trade mission in San Francisco, where First Minister Carwyn Jones is leading a delegation of 18 Welsh businesses.
Hydro Industries specialises in the design, manufacture and operation of electro-based water treatment products. The deal will see unique products that have been developed and patented in Wales deployed across the United States market.
