Advanced Drainage Systems Purchases Flexstorm
Inlet filter company now part of ADS
Advanced Drainage Systems Inc. (ADS) has acquired Inlet & Pipe Protection Inc., manufacturer of Flexstorm storm water inlet filters. The products will now be marketed under the ADS Flexstorm brand.
“Since 2009, Flexstorm products have been part of the ADS catalog," stated Ron Vitarelli, chief operating officer and executive vice president of ADS, "and now we will increase production and distribution to meet the escalating demand for the inlet filters.”
"Prior to our 2009 agreement with ADS, our distribution was focused on the Midwest,” said Jamie Ringenbach, president of the Naperville, Ill.,-based Inlet & Pipe Protection. “Because of the distribution strength of the ADS network, during the past several years we have been supplying more of the United States, Canada and Mexico. We are very pleased that joining ADS will provide the wherewithal to increase manufacturing to meet that growing need."
