HILLIARD, OHIO (Aug. 15, 5 p.m. ET) — Corrugated pipe maker Advanced Drainage Systems Inc. will open a plant in Hampton, Iowa, which will begin extruding plastic pipe by mid-September.
The plant will serve northeastern Iowa and southern Minnesota. ADS picked Hampton for its location, interstate access and a qualified labor pool, said Joe Chlapaty, chairman and CEO of ADS.
“We're seeing an enormous demand for all of our products, including our single-wall agricultural pipe, dual-wall storm drain pipe, HP sanitary pipe, storm chambers, sanitary chambers and many other products throughout the region,” Chlapaty said in a press release announcing the new plant.
ADS did not immediately release details about the number of employees or the equipment needed for the Hampton pipe factory.
