AGRU America 2022 Milestones

A review of AGRU’s achievements in North America throughout 2022.

[Georgetown, South Carolina, January 9, 2022 —] AGRU America, Inc. has spearheaded several initiatives in 2022 to support AGRU’s mission of supplying plastics technology to build a better future. AGRU’s innovative plastic solutions help protect human health, conserve vital resources, and modernize infrastructure. 

In May, AGRU joined the Materials Technology Institute, a global network of industry experts focusing on improving member companies’ safety, reliability, sustainability, and profitability. As an MTI member, AGRU has access to new resources and a real-time information network to help solve modern challenges. 

In September, AGRU America was awarded an International Association of Plastics Distribution (IAPD) Bronze Marketing Excellence Award to acknowledge innovative and exemplary marketing initiatives from mid-2021 through Spring 2022. 

During the fall of 2022, AGRU supplied pipe and fittings for a canal enclosure of the Steinaker Service Canal. This project is significant because about a third of the water flowing through the irrigation canal is lost to seepage and evaporation. By enclosing the canal, the owners will help improve sustainable access to fresh water in Utah. The project’s success will help spur a paradigm shift in the United States, with more owners considering the benefits of canal enclosures.
