Prinsco Welcomes Drainage Industries of Appleton, Wisconsin
September 1, 2012
Willmar, Minnesota – September 1, 2012: Prinsco, Inc. recently welcomed Drainage Industries of Appleton, Wisconsin, into its growing company after purchasing the HDPE pipe manufacturer from Richard and Todd Popp. Drainage Industries was started in 1973 and is best known for making small diameter single-wall pipe for the retail market. Their niche has been 1 ½”, 1 ¾” and 2” sump pump hose. They also manufacture a one-of-a-kind corrugated foundation drainage solution called “PROFORMTM,” along with a few other specialty retail products.
Prinsco has been serving the retail drainage market for years, but recently expanded their offerings and geographic reach with the addition of National Drainage Alliance, a group of HDPE pipe manufacturers working together under one, coordinated company. The addition of Drainage Industries will continue that effort by expanding Prinsco’s product portfolio and manufacturing facilities for the retail market.
Jeremy Duininck, Prinsco Vice President of Operations says, “The last several years have been an exciting time of growth and change for Prinsco. We look forward to the possibilities this new addition offers to our customers, our company and the entire Prinsco team.”
Prinsco Vice President of Sales, Jamie Duininck, adds, “Prinsco’s mission statement is to care, to contribute and to solve, and we feel like this move is a result of that effort. At Prinsco, we care about better serving the needs of our retail customers, and this new acquisition is one more way we can contribute to that effort and solve the problems of our retail market.”
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 residential, commercial, highway, recreational turf and storm water quality markets.
Originally founded in Prinsburg, Minnesota, Prinsco has expanded to include additional facilities in Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, California, South Dakota, North Dakota, and now Wisconsin.
