Press Release: Hobas Pipe USA, Inc. Expands Production to Meet Growing Infrastructure Demand 

Houston, TX – April 23, 2024 – Hobas Pipe USA, Inc., North America’s leading manufacturer of corrosion-resistant fiberglass pipe products, is excited to announce an expansion of its production capabilities with the addition of a second manufacturing line. This expansion, set to be operational by October 1, 2024, increases capacity to meet the escalating demands of the water and wastewater infrastructure sectors. 

Martin Dana, President, and CEO, emphasized the expansion as a response to the robust demand for Hobas’s high-quality, fiberglass reinforced polymer mortar (FRPM) pipes, particularly from municipal clients across the United States. This new production line will boost the company’s output by 50%, enhancing Hobas offerings for water and wastewater projects with large diameter pipes ranging from 12 to 118 inches, and pressure ratings up to 500 psi. 

This initiative is part of the ongoing capital expansion program initiated in May 2021, reflecting Hobas’s commitment to supporting North America’s infrastructure with durable, long-lasting solutions.  

“In 2022 we increased our capacity to serve our municipal clients, particularly to address their pressure water needs and the response far exceed our expectation,” said Martin Dana President and CEO of Hobas Pipe USA, Inc. “This new investment further emphasizes our commitment to the critical wet infrastructure landscape of North America. By continuing to select our pipe for their projects our clients are making a statement- they want long-lasting solutions for their pipe needs. Solutions that are corrosion resistant, last 150 years, reduce their energy consumption and improve their impact on the environment,” Dana added.  

To celebrate this continued acceptance of their products, Hobas Pipe is also releasing a Look Back Series to review and republish case studies that cover their long history of exceptional service to the water and wastewater industries. Whether water or sewer, Hobas has over three decades of projects in the ground and is more ready than ever to continue providing the top product for piping needs
