The announcement this past June that Georgia Gulf agreed to acquire all outstanding common stock of Royal Group Technologies, was great news for retaining wall manufacturer Northstar Vinyl Products.
Historically, retaining walls were built of traditional materials like wood and concrete. In fact, since availability of these materials was great, they remained the top material choices for many years. However, in recent years, retaining walls have changed dramatically with two key innovations. Vinyl sheet piling and marine-grade composite sheet piling have taken the retaining walls industry to an entirely new level and have quickly become the first choice for retaining wall manufacturing.
Northstar Vinyl Products is now developing a strong relationship with Royal Group Technologies, a leading producer of vinyl building and construction products. In fact, the strong relationship between the two companies is helping to elevate PVC to the most popular choice for constructing retaining walls.
“Georgia Gulf manufactures commodity chemicals, vinyl resins, and vinyl compounds, which are the basic materials used to manufacture PVC. The combination of Royal Group Technologies with Georgia Gulf should mean innovative strides and greater efficiencies in the PVC arena,” states Jeff Moreau, Northstar Vinyl Products.
He continues: “We are looking forward to further developing our relationship with the newly combined company. With our exciting array of retaining wall products and the necessity to constantly innovate and make our products better, we hope to continue our expansion of our production capabilities and shorter the production time in order to meet increasing demand for retaining walls constructed from vinyl sheet piling.”
Northstar Vinyl Products emerged as a leader in retaining wall products installed throughout the Gulf Coast and other regions in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the region, took hundreds of lives and caused billions of dollars in damage.
Northstar Vinyl Products, LLC is located in Kennesaw, GA. Manufacturing facilities are located in Pell City, AL, Rockford, IL, Houston, TX, Cartersville, GA and Woodbridge, Canada.
