McElroy Partners with Netafim to Grow HDPE Equipment Business
McElroy, a maker of pipe fusion machines, and Netafim, an irrigation company, have joined forces to meet the demand for high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipeline solutions serving the irrigation industry and the growing opportunities in potable water and natural gas.
Both companies have devoted decades to providing quality infrastructure and jobsite solutions to create a sustainable future.
“There are many similarities in the history of our companies — the team-based reward systems our organizations have and the passion we each share to do our part to make the world a better place,” said McElroy President Chip McElroy.
McElroy was the featured equipment manufacturer at Netafim’s Open House , which debuted the expansion of Netafim’s HDPE fusion equipment business. Netafim also sent representatives to McElroy’s Tulsa, Oklahoma, headquarters to take fusion operator courses at McElroy University which also offers training in troubleshooting, maintenance and inspection.
“I can tell you that the McElroy machine has a lot of advantages,” said Gaby Ben David, who also trained at McElroy recently. “It’s simple to operate and with the way it is designed, it makes sense when you operate it.”
