CONCORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Mar 2, 2017) - Armtec is excited to announce a multi-million dollar investment in equipment to manufacture large diameter high density polyethylene ("HDPE") storm sewer pipe for the public and private infrastructure markets across Canada. The equipment will produce flexible pipe with bell and gasket joints, and will be certified to the appropriate CSA standards. The investment comprises state-of-the-art production, testing and laboratory equipment. The pipe will be marketed under the trademark name BOSS 3000™.
