Houston, TX - February 4, 2014 - GSE Environmental, the leading manufacturer of containment and drainage solutions, is excited to announce that it has signed a global distribution agreement with TENAX, the leading producer of reinforcement and stabilization products. Under this agreement, GSE has the exclusive right to distribute, on a global scale, TENAX geogrids used in mining and environmental applications.
Geogrids are geosynthetic products used for soil reinforcement and stabilization in a variety of applications where the native soils are too weak to support expected loads or heavy traffic. Geogrids also are used to reinforce steep slopes, like those found in landfills, embankments, retaining walls, and bridge abutments. In addition, they help contain rock debris in tunneling and mining applications.
“GSE is excited to further our relationship with TENAX. With this agreement, GSE offers the broadest range of geosynthetic products and services, and we can now provide complete containment, drainage, and reinforcement solutions to our global customers, wherever they are located,” said Giovanni Capra, Vice President Business Development, GSE Environmental.
“TENAX is thrilled to partner with GSE to bring our highly-engineered reinforcement solutions to a global environmental and mining customer base. GSE shares the same commitment to quality, innovation, and customer service that has been a cornerstone of the TENAX culture since our founding in 1959,” said Claudio Fenzo, Division Director, TENAX.
