Trenchless Pipe Rehab Leaders Solidify Bond

HammerHead, RS Technik strategic alliance offers full suite of noninvasive pipe repair and rehabilitation solutions.

HammerHead Trenchless Equipment, a Charles Machine Works company, has announced it has formed a strategic alliance with RS Lining Systems, LLC, the provider of RS Technik pipe rehabilitation solutions in the Americas. This will complete the suite of non intrusive rehabilitation solutions available to HammerHead customers.

A global leader of CIPP technology, RS Technik manufactures rehabilitation product lines such as RS MaxPatch, a fast, trenchless, selective point repair system for pipes 3 to 48 inches in diameter.

Joanne Carroll, RS Lining Systems senior vice president, said: “It’s exciting for us to be partnered with HammerHead. HammerHead is a significant leader in the industry, who provides trenchless solutions that effectively and economically address mounting underground infrastructure issues. Together we will significantly enhance the value to customers by delivering the industry’s most complete package of sustainable engineered solutions for trenchless pipeline repair.”

Rick Johnson, HammerHead interim president and CEO of Charles Machine Works, agreed: “Every RS Technik solution is fundamentally grounded in providing proven, effective and reliable alternatives to traditional pipe repair. Combine their products with our HammerHead HydraLiner CIPP line of installation equipment and consumables—not to mention our full line of pipe bursting equipment— and our customers have access to every advantage possible for restoring gravity and pressure sewer, water and industrial pipe infrastructures.”

“Our companies share that same entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for creating solutions for the underground infrastructure industry, which makes this union such a natural fit. We’re sure our customers will see that right away. Both companies are solution oriented and innovation driven. In the future, we’re even looking forward to the possibility of our R&D teams cooperating on the next generation of trenchless solutions.”
