JM Eagle to Issue: 50-year Warranty
Jun 22, 2010
Leading Pipe Manufacturer Backs Comprehensive Line of PVC and PE Plastic Pipe with Unprecedented Warranty: JM Eagle, the world’s largest manufacturer of plastic pipes, today announced it is issuing an unprecedented 50-year warranty against manufacturing defects for its pipe products. This warranty - unmatched by any other pipe manufacturer - is a significant first step toward rebuilding the crumbling infrastructure of the USA.
"JM Eagle’s new warranty program sets a new industry standard for quality assurance," said JM Eagle Vice President of Operations Dave Slawson. "This warranty will give our customers, and most importantly, tax payers peace of mind about the integrity of our company and products."
Additionally, the warranty will retroactively cover plastic pipe products manufactured by JM Eagle and its predecessor J-M Manufacturing since original inception for all new pipe failures. No other pipe manufacturer has matched this claim.
"I have been waiting 20-years for someone to do something of this magnitude to change the plastic-pipe industry," said Roy Thames, President and CEO of Thames and Associates. "This is brilliant."
In use since the 1970’s, plastic pipe provides infinite benefits over traditional metal, concrete or pipe made from other materials. As the nation’s infrastructure continues to age and decay, plastic pipe is an essential element for modernizing the water distribution system. Plastic pipes long life reduces replacement costs to state and local governments. Plastic pipe’s resistance to rust and corrosion, common with metal pipes, makes it the perfect solution to carrying clean drinking water to homes and businesses.
"The ultimate beneficiary is the end user who received a product that is of the highest quality and delivers excellent long-term performance," says Anthony Radoszewski, executive director of the Plastics Pipe Institute.
The company’s comprehensive line of pipe products is certified by the nation’s foremost independent agencies, including Underwriters Laboratories and NSF International. JM Eagle’s plants and pipes are subjected to unannounced inspections and random testing by these agencies and others to ensure the quality of the products. The company’s gross quality claim rate over the last 10 years is below 0.1 percent. This exceptionally low claim rate underscores the consistently reliable quality of the one billion feet of pipe the company produces each year.
"Our state and local officials need reliable solutions to rebuild our collapsing infrastructure," says industry leader Bradford Corbett Sr., Founder and CEO of S & B technologies. "JM Eagle’s unprecedented warranty not only sets a new standard for the industry but it also ensures the longevity of our nation’s infrastructure - which is critical to maintaining safe and cost-effective water distribution networks."
Great savings, convenience and durability await those who realize the time has come to embrace new concepts and technologies. "As many municipalities set out to repair their aging infrastructures with economic stimulus funds, they can take comfort in the fact that an investment into JM Eagle’s pipe is one they will not have to repeat for at least another generation," said Slawson. "This 50-year warranty verifies what we’ve been doing all along. JM Eagle stands by the quality of its products, only now it’s on paper."
