United Felts Expands West Coast Operations

Jun 07, 2024

United Felts (formerly Applied Felts Ltd. & FerraTex Solutions), recently announced the addition of a state-of-the-art wet-out facility in Montana. This facility is a significant milestone in United Felts’ strategic growth, enhancing its capacity to deliver cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liner products in wet or dry formats more efficiently, swiftly, and cost-effectively to West Coast and Canadian customers.

“At Vortex, we are constantly looking to grow and adapt to meet our customers’ needs where they are,” said Mike Vellano, CEO of Vortex Companies. “Expanding our capabilities and facilities in the Western U.S. and Canadian provinces is a critical part of our strategic plan. This facility marks an important step in our ongoing expansion.”

More specifically, as demand for ultraviolet (UV) liner technologies surges across Western States, this facility will play a crucial role in operations and comes just ahead of United Felts’ anticipated 2024 release of its expanded UV liner portfolio. The most dynamic UV portfolio in the market, including EnviroCure UV that delivers dimpling at service lateral connections eliminating the need for pre-marking laterals for reinstatement and United UV GRP for large diameter applications, providing the widest coverage of UV liner options than any other supplier.

“Interest in UV technology for pipe relining is growing, especially in the West U.S. market,” said Matt Timberlake, president of United Felts. “This new facility not only allows us to shorten delivery times for our wet or dry UV liners but also places our entire product line within easy reach of a key growth market.”

The facility, a center of excellence for wet-out services, will continue to uphold and extend the high standards of Made in America quality and service that the United Felts and formerly FerraTex Solutions brand is known for.

United Felts, formed in January 2024 through the acquisition of Applied Felts Inc., FerraTex Solutions, and MaxLiner, by Vortex Companies, represents a pioneering force in trenchless infrastructure solutions. For more information, visit unitedfelts.com.
