MONTREAL — Solmax announces that it has agreed to acquire Propex, a U.S. geosynthetics manufacturer with a background in the construction, transportation, mining, and automotive industries. With this transaction, Solmax reinforces its position as a geosynthetics solutions provider.

Jean-Louis Vangeluwe, President of Solmax, commented: “This strategic acquisition enables Solmax to expand its sophisticated geosynthetics product portfolio for the benefit of engineers, distributors, contractors, operators, and others working in the environmental containment and civil infrastructure sectors. As a global leader in the industry, Solmax is accelerating the promotion and awareness of highly technical and specialized geosynthetic solutions, reducing the carbon footprint of conventional building solutions, and mitigating the environmental impact of human activities.”
