Source: Advanced Drainage Systems news release

Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (ADS) today announced the start up of a second manufacturing facility in Brazil for its joint venture with Tigre S.A. Located in Maceio, Alagoas, which is in the northeastern part of Brazil, the facility will double Tigre-ADS' annual capacity of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipe. The new facility will be the fourth operating plant in South America for the joint venture.

"From day one, Tigre has shared our commitment to making quality products and exceeding customer expectations anywhere in the world, and that has led to the success of this venture," said Joe Chlapaty, ADS Chairman and CEO. "We are excited to extend the Tigre-ADS offering throughout such a vibrant market."

Established in 2009, Santiago, Chile-based Tigre-ADS manufactures and distributes HDPE pipes for a wide range of markets including storm water management, sanitation, mining, agriculture, telecom and electrical throughout South America. The joint venture also has operations in Santiago and Antofagasta, Chile and Rio Claro, SP Brazil.

The newly added capacity will allow Tigre ADS to continue to meet the needs created by rapidly expanding infrastructure development across South America.
