“This move brings all of Tensar’s proprietary technologies, manufacturing capabilities, and distribution networks under one roof,” said Bob Vevoda, Tensar Earth Technologies president.
Tensar International serves commercial, industrial and transportation customers in Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Australia. The company maintains regional offices in the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, China, and the United Arab Emirates; distributor support offices in France, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Russia, Australia, Indonesia, and Malaysia; and a worldwide network of more than 80 select distributors. Manufacturing facilities are located in Blackburn and in Wuhan, China.
