Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (ADS), the world’s largest manufacturer of corrugated plastic pipe, has opened its newest product distribution site in Morrisburg.
ADS is headquartered in Hilliard, Ohio.
The yard, located on County Road 31 (beside the flea market) has already increased the local availability of the company’s products in and around Ottawa and Southeastern Ontario.
Supply for the yard comes from the company’s manufacturing plants including Heidelberg, Ontario and St. Germain, Quebec.
“The reason for this expansion,” said Ewout Leeuwenburg, ADS Senior Vice President of International Operations, “is because of the strong demand for our agricultural water management pipe products and our other products used in storm water and sanitary sewer systems. Not only will we be shipping from this site using our trucks, but contractors can also pick up what they need, when they need it.”
ADS products are found in farms, sports stadiums, golf courses, highways, building complexes, housing developments, industrial parks, airports and the infrastructure of cities and towns throughout Canada and the world.
The new Morrisburg yard is part of ADS’ on-going multi-million dollar capital investment program announced in 2011 to add pipe production and inventory capacity. ADS has a network of 56 manufacturing locations worldwide, and 28 stocking service yards.
