Solmax has agreed to acquire Propex, an industry-leading geosynthetics manufacturer with a long track record in the construction, transportation, mining, and automotive industries. With this transaction, Solmax International Inc., Varennes/Canada, reinforces its position as a leading geosynthetics solutions provider.
As a global leader in the industry, Solmax is accelerating the promotion and awareness of highly technical and specialized geosynthetic solutions, reducing the carbon footprint of conventional building solutions, and mitigating the environmental impact of human activities.
Solmax’s geosynthetic solutions are used by major industrial companies in mining, energy, waste management, construction, civil engineering, environmental containment, infrastructure, and transport, while infrastructure solutions and systems from Propex Inc., Chattanooga, TN/USA, are used in erosion control applications, construction, transportation infrastructure, and industrial applications.
The acquisition of Propex follows the acquisition of TenCate Geosynthetics, Hengelo/Netherlands, earlier in 2021.
