A more powerful player in the pipe industry

We are excited about the decision to acquire the concrete and steel pressure pipe assets of U.S. Pipe, a division of Forterra. We will operate under the name Thompson Pipe Group, and this makes us one of the largest and most diverse pressure pipe providers in North America, with manufacturing locations across the country.

We began as a utility construction company, and have since grown into a major provider of diverse large-diameter pipe and related products to the North American water infrastructure market.

This means that our expanded pressure pipe solutions to also include:

• Welded Steel Pressure Pipe (S-200) AWWA C200

• Bar-wrapped Concrete Cylinder Pipe (B-303) AWWA C303

• Prestressed Concrete Embedded Cylinder Pipe (E-301) AWWA C301

• Prestressed Concrete Lined Cylinder Pipe (L-301) AWWA C301

With this latest acquisition, we’re better positioned to serve the water, wastewater, power and industrial sectors with:

• the largest and most diverse offering of large-diameter pressure products
• the largest range of trenchless products and solutions
• the most complete engineering and transportation support within the sector

Customers will now be able to choose from an expanded range of products, including large-diameter concrete and steel pressure pipes, Flowtite®, fiberglass polymer pipe and structures, Flow-Crete™ and RCP.

“Our water infrastructure is in dire need of rehabilitation and/or replacement. It’s an enormous challenge, but one that TPG will be positioned to help meet. With a complete range of pipe products, we can serve our customers like never before,” comments EVP Mike Leathers.

While Thompson Pipe Group is expanding in response to growing market demand, the company remains at heart a family company, always mindful of its contracting and engineering roots. We can provide even greater levels of manufacturing, transportation, engineering and field support than previously, but always with the same commitment to relationship and doing the right thing.

We are excited to welcome our new team members from U.S. Pipe and offer them a place where they can grow professionally. The expanded company will not only be able to provide the market a more comprehensive service; the organization will have the ability to provide employees with broader opportunities across a wider skill set.

Thompson Pipe Group is continuing to grow, and you could grow together with us. We frequently have employment opportunities, in engineering, manufacturing, marketing and more. If you’re interested, simply drop us a line at staffing@thompsonpipegroup.com to start the ball rolling.
