We are a group of companies manufacturing and distributing plastic pipe throughout the U.S. under the Cresline name. We trace our roots back to 1949, making us the oldest, most trusted name in our industry. Our companies are privately held, third generation, family-owned U.S. operations known to produce the highest quality products and deliver them with industry-leading service. Our experienced management teams and dedicated, loyal employees have exceeded our customers' demands for more than five decades.
Cresline is unique in that we offer a full range of piping products for a wide variety of uses throughout the U.S. and do so with our industry's most extensive range of plastics of PVC, Polyethylene, ABS, and CPVC including FlowGuard Gold®.
Our plants are located across the country to best serve our customers. Cresline Plastic Pipe Co., Inc. built its first plant, solely for the production of plastic pipe, in Henderson, Ky., in 1966, followed by Mechanicsburg, Pa., in 1973, Council Bluffs, Iowa, in 1978 and Corsicana, Texas, in 1985. We purchased the Swanson Company's pipe manufacturing plant in Phoenix, Ariz., and distribution facility in Fresno, Calif., in 1992 and operate them under the name Cresline-West, Inc. We formed Cresline-Northwest, LLC in 2002 and constructed a state-of-the-art pipe manufacturing plant in Chehalis, Wash.
We are complemented by our sister companies, Crescent Plastics, Inc., which produces unique custom plastic extrusions and Wabash Plastics, Inc., which manufactures leading-edge custom injection molded plastic parts.
We are leaders in our industry and communities and place our highest emphasis on integrity and the safety of our employees. We were instrumental in developing the plastic pipe industry standards and the certifications in place today. We continue this commitment to the service of our industry.
Although we have grown tremendously, since 1949, we still feel like a small family operation. A long-standing corporate goal continues today: We want to be the best supplier our customers deal with…
