Advanced Drainage Systems Inc. (ADS)—a global manufacturer of water management products and solutions for commercial, residential, infrastructure and agricultural applications—announced that it is scheduled to build a new pipe manufacturing plant in Harrisonville, Mo., approximately 40 miles south of Kansas City, Mo., to better serve growing customer demand in the region.

“We are pleased to announce our plans to expand our manufacturing footprint in Harrisonville, Mo.,” said Joe Chlapaty, chairman and CEO of ADS. “In addition to freeing up production capacity in the Midwest for our pipe products, the new plant will allow us to meet the growing demand for all of our products in the region while helping to reduce the time and cost of delivery to our customers. This decision demonstrates our commitment to providing the very best service to our customers as we continue to grow.”

The 65,000 sq ft plant is scheduled to open during the first half of 2017 and will produce the company’s single and dual wall, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene pipe. The facility will also operate its own fleet of delivery trucks. The full portfolio of ADS products will be available at the site including ADS N-12 HDPE pipe, HP Storm and SaniTite polypropylene pipe, StormTech Chambers, INSERTA TEE and other fittings, Nyloplast Drain Structures plus geosynthetic fabrics and grids.
