HOUSTON — (August 22, 2016) — GSE Environmental, the leading global manufacturer and marketer of geosynthetic lining solutions, announced today that in response to high demand for innovative drainage products, they are constructing a new manufacturing line in the Kingstree, SC facility. The new line will be capable of producing GSE’s full line of biplanar and triplanar geonet and geocomposite products. In addition, GSE will be converting its Houston production facility to accommodate biplanar production and allow more timely, economical delivery of these products to customers in the Western US and Mexico.
Much of the demand for drainage products is being driven by the coal ash regulations that were implemented in the United States by the EPA last year. GSE’s Kingstree plant is ideally located in close proximity to this market and others to facilitate delivery of geonet and geocomposite.
“At GSE, we are always looking for ways to better serve our customers’ needs and this new manufacturing line will allow us to significantly expand our capacity and ensure that our product is available during times of high demand,” said Mark Leigh, President of the Americas.
