Geogrids for mining and environmental applications.
Houston-based GSE Environmental, manufacturer of containment and drainage products, announced in a Feb. 4 press release that it has signed a global distribution agreement with Tenax, a manufacturer of reinforcement and stabilization products. Under this agreement, GSE has the exclusive right to distribute worldwide Tenax geogrids used in mining and environmental applications.
“GSE is excited to further our relationship with Tenax,” said Giovanni Capra, vice president of business development at GSE. “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.”
The press release explained that 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, such as those in landfills, embankments, retaining walls, and bridge abutments. In addition, they help contain rock debris in tunneling and mining applications.
“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, Tenax division director.
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, GSE maintains sales offices throughout the world and manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Chile, Germany, China, Thailand, and Egypt.
Tenax currently has offices in the U.S., Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and China.
