Hilliard, Ohio – February 09, 2007: Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc., (ADS), is pleased to announce that it has expanded its ARC chamber product line with additional production capabilities at its Winchester, Kentucky facility. The full family of ARC and traditional BioDiffuser ® leaching chambers will be manufactured in the Winchester facility by 2008.
“This is great news not only for ADS but for our customers, as well,” stated Ewout Leeuwenburg, Director of Allied Products at ADS. “By bringing the entire line into one manufacturing facility, we are creating efficiencies in both production and customer service. The ARC chamber was introduced to the market in 2006. It was applauded because of its superior structural integrity, job site flexibility and ease of installation. Further research and development allowed us to expand this innovative line with a host of ARC leaching chambers that will fit the needs of almost any leach field application.”
To date the line has consisted of the ARC 36 – with the first mold introduced in January 2006, the ARC 36 HC in October 2006 and the second ARC 36 mold in November 2006. In January 2007, the ARC 24 was introduced and it is expected that a new addition, the ARC 18, will soon be added to the line.
