Avanti International Celebrates 40-Year Anniversary

Avanti International reached a milestone, celebrating 40 years as an industry leader.

Founded in 1978, Avanti began with only one product, AV-100 Chemical Grout, used primarily to seal leaking sewer lines. Company owner and grouting industry pioneer David Magill was the integral leader who helped develop industry-wide standards and practices.

Over the following decade, the company added its first urethane product and held its first grout school training program. In the late 1980s and through the 1990s, Avanti continued to expand its product line, adding the first hybrid acrylic product, AV-118 Duriflex, and introduced new industry standards, including the Safe Operating Practices Program, the V-PAT Technique and the EGP Technique.

Avanti products have been used in several landmark projects over the years, including the Toronto Transit Commission subway system leak remediation program; Dearborn, Mich., combined sewer overflows (CSOs) curtain grouting project; United States Oak Ridge National Laboratory; and other Department of Energy sites. Most notably, Avanti’s hydrophilic products were used in the World Trade Center cleanup after 9/11.

“I am very proud that the company is able to celebrate our success and longevity,” noted Angela Magill, owner of Avanti and widow of its founder David Magill.
