Advanced Drainage Systems Inc. (ADS), the world’s largest
manufacturer of corrugated high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, has announced plans to open four new
manufacturing facilities located in the United States, Puerto Rico and Mexico. All plants will be operational
within the next six to nine months. ADS currently operates 21 domestic and five international plants, along
with 28 distribution centers in the United States.
Since first introducing corrugated HDPE pipe in 1966, ADS has led the industry in production and
product development servicing the stormwater management industry. With growing approvals and
acceptance, these announced plant expansions follow a long line of strategic growth.
“In the last 15 years, we have experienced solid growth as the civil construction industry has
embraced the substantial features and benefits of our N-12® pipe and related fittings and structures,” said
Joe Chlapaty, president and chief executive officer of ADS. “Our products have shown substantial benefits
in both cost and performance compared to corrugated steel and reinforced concrete pipe.”
