In a move sure to strengthen the unique ‘Rain-to-Drain’ position of Alumasc Group plc‘s Water Management division, it has finalised the acquisition of Essex-based drainage specialist, Wade International.

Alumasc Water Management Divisional Managing Director, Steve Durdant-Hollamby, commented on how Wade has created a strong brand based on the design excellence and high quality manufacture of its products.

“Its strategic focus aligns perfectly with our own and will allow us greater scope and capacity to invest in and develop the next generation of drainage systems that will define new standards in performance, durability and value,” said Steve.

Based in Halstead, Essex, Wade has a history reaching more than 50 years. Working with a range of metals tailored to particular specifications, its product portfolio features linear drainage channels, floor gullies and grease converters.

Its products have featured in the UK and abroad, in projects such as The British Library and Hong Kong’s Chep Lap Kok Airport.
