Prinsco Commits to Serving Canadian Agricultural & Infrastructure Markets: Establishes Prinsco Canada Incorporated and two manufacturing plants

Willmar, Minnesota – December 23, 2013: Prinsco, Inc. has dramatically stepped up its commitment to serve the agricultural and infrastructure markets of Canada, most notably the Central Prairie region. Last week, the company officially established Prinsco Canada Inc. They also acquired AccuPipe and welcomed the facility and team into their existing network of North American manufacturing plants. AccuPipe is an HDPE pipe manufacturer in Winkler, Manitoba, just 125 km southwest of Winnipeg. Over the next thirty days, the purchase of AccuPipe will be complete and the business will officially become Prinsco Canada. 

Prinsco Canada will also be adding a second plant in Taber, Alberta, which is in the Southwest region of the Canadian Prairie. This facility will be operational in the spring of 2014, manufacturing and stocking a full line of pipe and accessories.

AccuPipe founders, Chris and Charlotte Unrau, are optimistic about the opportunities this change will provide for everyone involved, including their staff, community, valued clients and other producers in Western Canada. Chris has spent the last several years educating and advocating for the use of best practice water management solutions because he feels tile drainage has proven itself in Western Canada as a technique to improve yields and reduce risk.

Chris says, “As new owners, Prinsco Canada can help build on the success of AccuPipe by offering an expanded product line, vast technical expertise, and a full network of customer service and engineering support.” Unrau also owns and operates Precision Land Solutions, a Winkler, Manitoba based company specializing in the design and installation of water management solutions such as tile and surface drainage. He adds, “We are excited about being able to focus our time and resources on the installation side of the business. Prinsco Canada and Precision Land Solutions will continue to work closely together to advance the use of water management practices.”

Jamie Duininck, Prinsco Owner and Vice President of Sales, adds, “Our company vision is to provide industry leading solutions for agricultural efficiency and water quality, which is critically important in the Canadian Prairies. They have a thriving agricultural industry that makes a huge contribution to feeding our world. Prinsco Canada is committed to providing them with access to water management products that can take them to the next level of success in creating more productive fields and building land values.

Prinsco has been a leader in the agricultural water management industry since 1975 and their premium HDPE products are widely known for having a gold stripe. Prinsco also offers engineered water management solutions for the building trades and civil construction/commercial markets. 

Originally founded in Prinsburg, Minnesota, Prinsco has expanded to include additional manufacturing facilities in Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, California, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and now Canada.

Prinsco Awarded “Project of the Year” by The Plastics Pipe Institute

Willmar, Minnesota – June 7, 2013: Prinsco was recently awarded, “Project of the Year” by The Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI), a major trade association representing all segments of the plastics piping industry.

Prinsco captured the title in the Corrugated Plastic Pipe Division for their Hillcrest Knoll Park Project in St. Paul, Minnesota. The project used more than 2,500 feet of 60-inch diameter Prinsco corrugated HDPE pipe to construct a retention system capable of storing 85,000 cubic feet of water. The system was installed underground at the Hillcrest Knoll Park, a public green space in the center of a residential area, in order to mitigate flooding issues with the park and bordering residences.

Prinsco’s Recyled Pipe – ECOFLO®100 – Approved as Virgin Equal

Willmar, Minnesota – January 18, 2013: Prinsco’s ECOFLO 100, the industry’s first recycled pipe with a 100 year service life, has been approved by the City of Indianapolis for use in storm water projects specifying HDPE pipe. This is a significant step forward in the acceptance of recycled products for use in high performance applications, and is made possible by Prinsco’s rigorous pursuit of excellence towards the advancement of polymer science technology.

ECOFLO 100 dual-wall pipe is made with a minimum of 40% recycled content and passed extensive review by Indianapolis Testing Laboratory to verify its 100 year service, past product performance and conformity to application standards. The results prompted the City of Indianapolis to update their previous specification, which required the use of only 100% virgin HDPE pipe. They are one of the first municipalities to specify ECOFLO 100 as a virgin HDPE equivalent, yet many are expected to follow.

Prinsco Partners with InnoTEK Services for High Performance Product Testing

Willmar, Minnesota – January 9, 2012: Prinsco announces today that it has dramatically raised the bar for performance testing by partnering with InnoTEK Services, LLC for advanced product testing and analysis services. InnoTEK Services, a company based out of Willmar, Minnesota, offers customized, high performance testing services to manufacturers in the water management industry.

InnoTEK Services will be working with Prinsco to perform pressure testing of their pipe, fittings, and related joining systems.  To this point, Prinsco has used in-house pipe joint testing equipment which was limited to 10.8 psi pressure standards.  While 10.8 psi joint testing has historically been sufficient for performance verification, it does not satisfy Prinsco’s new product development goals or the market trends toward higher performance levels.
