Tensar secures major order following US acquisition

Geosynthetics specialist Tensar has announced that it has secured a major order to supply soil reinforcement products for Hitachi Rail Europe’s new £82M manufacturing plant in Durham.

Under the Hitachi deal, Tensar will work with contractors Hall Construction and Shepherd to design a mechanically stabilised layer below a new access road for the plant.

Announcement of the order for 30,000m2 of Triax geogrids for the scheme comes and the company announces that it has been acquired by US-based private equity firm Castle Harlan. According to Tensar Corporation president and CEO Don Meltzer, Harlan’s investment in Tensar is testament to the company’s market leading position and gives the business good prospects for further growth.
