HOUSTON, May 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Hobas Pipe USA, Inc. (Hobas), the leading North American manufacturer of corrosion-resistant fiberglass pipe products for water and wastewater related infrastructure, announced today an increase in the company's product offerings and capacity to meet the growing demand in the municipal potable water market due to the passage of the Infrastructure and Investment Act as well as the Biden administration's strengthening of the Buy American Act.
"We are thrilled to now offer the same 150-year design life, corrosion-resistant pipe products that our wastewater customers have enjoyed for the past 35 years to the municipal water market," said Martin Dana, President and CEO of Hobas. "This investment represents our vision and continued commitment to creating peace of mind for future generations through safe and reliable infrastructure."
With an anticipated start date of July 1, 2022, the new equipment and technology will expand the company's current production capacity by 50 percent and increase pressure pipe offerings for the potable water market to include diameters from 12 to 118 inches and pressure ratings from 50 to 500 psi.
Houston-based Hobas's mission is to provide value beyond corrosion. In light of the recent legislation, Dana strongly believes that it is time for the country's infrastructure owners to think differently when selecting piping materials to replace aging infrastructure. Dana explained, "Hobas products are engineered to endure and as a result, we can drive meaningful climate change. The greenest pipe is the one you never have to replace, and it begins by selecting the correct pipe products for our critical wet infrastructure."
