Founded in 1966, ADS began serving the agricultural drainage market through a number of moderately sized plants located predominantly in the farm belt. "As we have grown in our ability to manufacture larger diameter pipe, more and more design engineers have come to realize the benefits of HDPE pipe," said Jim Haag, vice-president of sales. "With new federal regulations regarding Phase II of the Clean Water Act, N-12 pipe with its watertight joints and superior chemical and abrasion resistance, is ideally suited to meet established best management practices."
This 60,000 square foot manufacturing plant will produce both N-12 dual wall and single wall corrugated pipe serving the growing communities of the greater midwest. Used increasingly in underground retention and detention stormwater systems, engineers and architects are now able to maximize increasingly expensive real estate. "Not only do the designers better utilize available land, they do it at an overall savings when compared to traditional alternatives," added Haag.
