Aliaxis SA, a world leader enabling access to water and energy through innovative fluid management solutions, has announced that it has completed its acquisition of the manufacturing division of the U.S.-based Valencia Pipe Co. Valencia’s teams will join Aliaxis’ North American IPEX business, further strengthening the company’s position in the U.S. This acquisition affirms Aliaxis’ commitment to the company’s North American growth strategy, giving Aliaxis an expanded presence in United States by adding two manufacturing facilities located in Walla Walla, Washington, and Kingman, Arizona, and a distribution center in Kingman.
Eric Olsen, CEO of Aliaxis, says: “The acquisition of the manufacturing division of Valencia is a perfect illustration of our Growth with Purpose strategy. It reflects our strong focus on customers first and our ability to seize relevant growth opportunities. Valencia’s plastic pipe and fittings manufacturing division provides a highly complementary geographic and product fit with IPEX, our leading brand in North America.”
Alex Mestres, Divisional CEO Americas, comments: “We are pleased to welcome the Valencia team to be part of the IPEX team. We are excited to fully leverage their existing range of ABS, PVC, and MDPE pipes used in a variety of applications, including water, gas, drain, waste, and vent, and pressure. Through the joining of Valencia to IPEX, we have the great opportunity to enter new markets and continue to deliver exceptional service for our North American customers.”
