Conwed Plastics Inc. has grown its erosion-control products by acquiring the erosion-control filament business of Monahan Filaments Inc. of Middlebury, Vt.
Minneapolis-based Conwed already had a stake in erosion control through its extruded and knitted netting. The purchased Prostran-brand filaments are used as a component in turf-reinforcement mats.
Conwed, doing business as Conwed Global Netting Solutions, bought the operating assets of the Prostran product line for an undisclosed sum Sept. 30. Prostran filaments can be extruded from various thermoplastics, said spokeswoman Jennifer Flanagan.
