Advanced Drainage Systems Inc. (ADS) added a fourth manufacturing line to its Saint-Germain plant that now produces large-diameter, open-profile pipe from 900 to 1500 mm. The plant is certified to produce N-12 corrugated HDPE pipe diameters from 100 to 900 mm with minimum pipe stiffness of 320 kPa when tested in accordance with ASTM D 2412. The product is certified to meet CAN/CSA Standard B182.8, BNQ 3624-120 plus AASHTO Load Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) specifications and is verified by Intertek. The plant is also capable of making the company's SaniTite HP polypropylene pipe products.

In Canada, ADS also has a pipe manufacturing plant in Heidelberg, Ontario, with stocking distribution yards in Morrisburg, Ontario; Moncton, New Brunswick; and Red Deer, Alberta, along with a fleet of dedicated trucks that serve both rural and metropolitan areas. The company has a global network of 57 plants and 28 yards. ADS products are found in farms, sports stadiums, golf courses, highways, building complexes, housing developments, industrial parks, airports and the infrastructure of cities and towns throughout Canada and the world.

"Since we opened the Saint-Germain plant in 2009, we have been adding to our capability and increasing production," stated Ewout Leeuwenburg, ADS senior vice president of international operations. "Most of this growth is due to the increasing and steady demand for our products to fulfill the needs of agricultural, storm water management and sanitary sewer projects. Our fourth production line here is just the latest step in our continuing capital investment plan."
