FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HANCOR ACQUIRES STORMTECH® LLC
FINDLAY, Ohio – March 1, 2010: As previously announced and as part of the ongoing
commitment to growth in the underground storm water market, effective today, Hancor, Inc. has
completed the acquisition of the remaining 50% interest in StormTech LLC.
StormTech was created as a 50/50 joint venture to engineer and manufacture chambers for use in
underground storm water retention/detention systems. Since inception, StormTech has become the
market leader in the retention/detention market.
StormTech chambers are highly engineered to meet the rigorous demands of subsurface storm
water management, and provide optimal underground detention for storm water runoff. This
product represents one of the most cost-effective subsurface storm water management solutions
with thousands of systems already installed.
According to Hancor, the StormTech product line has seen tremendous growth in recent years,
thanks in part to its ability to bring a new level of practicality and efficiency to subsurface storm
water storage applications. The SC-740 and SC-310 chambers have provided an economical
solution to stormwater management for the past several years, and the newly introduced MC-3500
is proving to be an immediate success as the larger capacity reduces footprint and related
excavation costs. This summer, StormTech will launch an additional new product, the MC-4500
which will further expand the cubic feet of storage capacity per chamber. StormTech chambers
are designed for easy, cost-efficient transport and storage.
StormTech is currently the only manufacturer to produce chambers in adherence with nationally
recognized ASTM standards. Additionally, StormTech chambers have been subjected to
advanced in-ground testing protocols and high-level industry expert review. They have been
evaluated to support HS-20 live loads following current AASHTO procedures for loads, structural
capacity and factor of safety when installed per StormTech's Chamber Installation Instructions.
StormTech chambers are molded from polypropylene resin, which is inherently resistant to
chemicals typically found in storm water runoff.
Hancor is a solutions provider with 46 domestic and international manufacturing plants and 22
distribution centers. One of the nation’s largest suppliers of storm water management systems,
Hancor manufactures a wide variety of plastic drainage products for the commercial, residential,
construction and agricultural markets. Hancor was founded in 1887 in Findlay, Ohio and operates
manufacturing facilities and service centers across the country. For more information call 1-888-
