Northwest Pipe Company said it has expanded its footprint in a key market through the acquisition of Ameron Water Transmission Group, a major supplier of engineered welded steel pressure pipe as well as reinforced concrete pipe.
Northwest Pipe is the largest manufacturer of engineered welded steel pressure pipe systems in North America. In addition to expanding its footprint in a key water transmission pipe market, the company said, the Ameron acquisition also broadens its product portfolio with the addition of bar-wrapped concrete cylinder pipe, reinforced concrete pipe and T-Lock, a proprietary PVC lining for concrete pipe sewer applications.
Vancouver, Wa.-based Northwest Pipe has manufacturing facilities across North America and develops products for applications in water transmission, plant piping, tunnels and river crossings. California-based Ameron Water Transmission was part of National Oilwell Varco and has pipe operations in Tracy, Calif. and San Luis Río Colorado, Mexico, as well as a protective lining facility in Brea, Calif.
