WINCHESTER, KY. (Dec. 8, 2:05 p.m. ET) — Infiltrator Systems Inc. will buy the septic chamber business of Advanced Drainage Systems Inc.
The chambers are made by injection molding, said Jim Bransfield, marketing manager of Infiltrator, based in Old Saybrook, Conn. He said ADS molds the chambers, but declined to give details on moving production.
Infiltrator already makes rotationally molded septic tanks at its factory in Winchester, Ky.
As part of the acquisition, ADS, a Hilliard, Ohio-based pipe maker, has entered into a long-term non-exclusive distribution agreement with Infiltrator Systems, and ADS will continue to market and sell the Arc and BioDiffuser product lines.
Terms were not released.
Infiltrator, which is owned by Philadelphia-based investment firm Graham Partners Inc., bought the corrugated pipe division of Blue Diamond Industries LLC in 2010.
