Diamond Fiberglass, a US manufacturer of glass fiber reinforced plastic vessels, has closed its asset acquisition of Fibrex Corporation, a composite chemical pipe, header systems and duct manufacturer.

Fibrex will be integrated into Diamond Fiberglass. Fibrex will continue to fabricate from its current location in Burlington, WA with the same production management and staff. Corporate functions will be moved to Victoria, Texas, USA.

‘The addition of Fibrex to Diamond Fiberglass' portfolio of custom, engineer-to-order composite equipment represents another important strategic expansion for our company,’ said Don Porr, president of Diamond Fiberglass. ‘The addition of the Fibrex product line, including the IntegraLine and IntegraHeader products will supplement our growing need for FRP piping systems. These products will benefit our customers who seek a single source supply for the design, fabrication and field installation of FRP/GRP engineered pipe.’
