BOW — Perma-Liner Industries, a business based in Clearwater, Fla., that repairs sewer pipes, is inviting the public to attend the two-day grand opening of its first Granite State location on April 16 and 17.
The new location at 7 Tallwood Drive, Units 5, 6 and 7, will support the work of the manufacturer’s four other distribution centers, located in Florida, California, Delaware and Illinois, by offering full stocking of the company’s materials and 24-hour assistance for all certified Perma-Liner installers.
Morgan Dietsch, Perma-Liner’s marketing director, said the Bow branch will employ nine people in sales, marketing and technician roles.
The company’s flagship product is its Cured In Place Pipe, “a resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester, fiberglass cloth or a number of other materials ... pulled into a damaged pipe” with “little to no digging” required, according to the company’s website.
The website says the product has a 50-year lifespan. It is sold to plumbers, contractors and municipalities who receive training from Perma-Liner technicians.
Built with the residential market in mind, Dietsch says plumbers, drain cleaners and other home repair contractors make up the bulk of their purchase orders, and that the Bow location was chosen in large part as a way to support the current and future needs of the company’s New England-based clientele in a more timely manner.
“New England has some of the oldest infrastructure, heavy population and combined sewers. The infrastructure is failing at a rapid rate. With the continuous growing demand for Perma-Liner’s technology throughout the New England area, this location will allow for the convenience of onsite pickup and local delivery, as well as prompt next-day service for all Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S.”
The open house will feature live demonstrations by company professionals, and attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the equipment.
