Hydro Intl. Signs New Distributorship Agreement in Midwest and South Regions

Thompson Culvert Co. to sell Hydro storm water control solutions in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Oklahoma

Hydro Intl., a leading provider of environmentally sustainable products and innovative solutions that control and treat storm water, wastewater and combined sewer overflows based in Portland, Maine, announced an agreement with Thompson Culvert Co., Hazelwood, Mo., to distribute Hydro storm water control products.
Thompson, a full-service distributor of heavy-duty steel drainage components, water control devices and a range of associated products, will act as the licensed distributor of Hydro storm water flow control and treatment solutions in Missouri, Illinois, northern Arkansas, western Kentucky, western Tennessee, northeast Oklahoma and southeast Kansas.
The agreement marks the first time in Hydro International’s 25-year history that the company has had direct sales or distribution coverage in the territory. In December Hydro received a business boost in the region when the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District approved the use of Hydro’s Up-Flo Filter as a best management practice for redevelopment and highway project sites in the district’s 92 municipalities, including the city of St. Louis.
“In recent years, communities have devoted more resources to removing pollutants from their storm water flows, and they’re seeing the benefits in the form of improved water quality,” said David Mongeau, general manager of Hydro Intl.’s U.S. Stormwater Division. “We see a strong business opportunity providing high-quality stormwater treatment and flow-control solutions in the Midwest and the South. Thompson Culvert has established a strong reputation, and we look forward to working with the staff best serve the residents of this region.”
