Forterra Cleans Up Pipe Position in Water

17 July 2017
Research Note

Forterra, Inc, a leading pipe supplier based in Texas, has entered into an agreement with California-based Thompson Pipe Group to exchange pipe assets. The deal has Thompson acquiring U.S. Pipe’s (a newly purchased Forterra subsidiary) concrete and steel pressure pipe assets for US$23.2 million plus Thompson’s Conroe, Texas, concrete drainage pipe and products operations.

In the aftermath of six water acquisitions, totaling US$1.03 billion since the start of 2016, rapidly ascendant pipe supplier Forterra has taken a step to offload some struggling assets.

Forterra and its peers are seeking to capitalize on scaling pipe infrastructure spend. According to Bluefield’s forecasts, municipal utility capital expenditures for water and sewer pipe infrastructure will surpass US$300 billion over the next 10 years.
