Alumasc Group has completed the acquisition of Essex-based drainage specialist, Wade International. This is for a strategic move to improve its Water Management division.

Wade International has an operational history extending over five decades. Working extensively with a variety of metals tailored to specific application environments its product portfolio includes linear drainage channels, floor gullies and grease converters. Its highly specified products have been used on many major projects both in the UK and overseas such as The British Library and Chep Lap Kok Airport, Hong Kong.

“Wade has built a strong brand on the design excellence and high quality manufacture of its products,” says Alumasc Water Management Divisional Managing Director, Steve Durdant-Hollamby. “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.”

Wade will join the five current business units within Alumasc Water Management Solutions (AWMS): Skyline, Alumasc Rainwater, Harmer Building Drainage, Gatic Civil Drainage and Gatic Access Covers.
