March 17, 2022 – Aliaxis SA, a player in the manufacture and distribution of piping systems, is acquiring Harco (Harrington Corp.), a producer of fittings located in Virginia.
“Harco is a well-established brand in municipal, irrigation and agriculture end-markets,” said Eric Olsen, Aliaxis CEO. “Harco will be part of IPEX […] and will result in an expanded product portfolio to a broader customer base.”
“Similar to IPEX, Harco’s success is the result of providing high-quality products combined with a reputation for customer service excellence,” said IPEX CEO Alex Mestres. “Harco’s product offering and dedication to its customers are all highly complementary to our business. We look forward to welcoming HARCO employees to IPEX and, together, delivering the greatest value to our customers.”
This acquisition, says Aliaxis, is part of its “Growth with Purpose” strategy.
