ADS Announces New Manufacturing Plant in North Dakota

New site will service North Dakota and the Red River Valley

Advanced Drainage Systems Inc. (ADS), a manufacturer of corrugated plastic pipe, is announcing that it is opening a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Buxton, N.D., to better serve customers throughout the region. The new plant will be fully operational by spring.

“We’re seeing enormous demand for HDPE pipe throughout the region, and we want to ensure that our customers continue to receive the very best in customer service,” said Joe Chlapaty, chairman and CEO of ADS. “By manufacturing pipe as close to our customers as possible, it will significantly reduce the time and cost of delivery. This additional production and shipping capacity will serve our growing customer base well.”

The new plant location is well-situated to service western Ontario, Manitoba and eastern Saskatchewan, Canada. ADS chose the Buxton area for its strategic geographic location, excellent interstate access and skilled and dedicated labor pool.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome ADS into our community,” said Gene Rosholt, mayor of Buxton. “Our community will benefit from ADS’ commitment to producing the highest quality water drainage products and the company’s outstanding reputation for supporting the communities where it operates. In turn, ADS will benefit from our skilled work force, strong quality of life and excellent location.”
