HILLIARD, OHIO — Advanced Drainage Systems Inc. (ADS) has acquired Foltz Concrete Pipe Co. LLC of Winston-Salem, N.C.

“We at ADS are very excited about our purchase of Foltz,” said Joe Chlapaty, chairman and CEO of ADS. “The acquisition of Foltz is yet another step ADS is taking to meet the needs of the storm drain and sanitary sewer markets. The unique ability to package multiple products to the same job-site including; plastic pipe, concrete pipe, precast structures, StormTech chambers, and water quality units can be of tremendous value to the customer.”

In addition to the packaged shipping abilities, ADS has a nationwide team of engineers and sales professionals who work with consulting engineers, agencies, distribution partners and installing contractors to provide cost effective solutions for drainage and sanitary sewer projects and programs. The addition of concrete pipe and precast structures further enhances ADS’ abilities as a solutions provider, the company said.
