Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. has acquired DURASLOT, Inc., a manufacturer of storm water collection surface drains used in a variety of construction applications. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“We are excited to welcome the DURASLOT product into the ADS family of Allied Products,” said Joe Chlapaty, Advanced Drainage Systems Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “DURASLOT is a proven product technology that ADS knows well having used it on certain applications over the years. We feel DURASLOT broadens our solutions offering and growth opportunities, and we will look to leverage our nationwide sales, engineering, manufacturing and customer network to further increase its market presence.”
Duraslot® linear surface drains are made by incorporating a heavy-duty aluminum inlet slot mounted on top of ADS N-12® corrugated HDPE pipe. The slotted inlet at grade intercepts sheet flow across a paved area or is installed against a curb or barrier in a gutter-type application. These high-capacity drains are designed to remove storm water as it flows across paved or cleared areas, or as it collects in low spots.
