HARVEY, Ill. — Atkore Inc. (“Atkore”) announced the acquisitions of two separate but related Oregon-based companies doing business as Cascade Poly Pipe & Conduit (“Cascade”) and Northwest Polymers. Cascade is a manufacturer specializing in smooth wall HDPE conduit made from recycled materials, primarily serving the telecommunications, utility and datacom markets (https://www.cascadepoly.com/); and Northwest Polymers is a leading recycler of PVC, HDPE and other plastics and a strategic supply partner to Cascade and other manufacturers in the region (https://nwpoly.com/).
According to John Pregenzer, President of Atkore’s Electrical business, “The acquisition of Cascade strengthens Atkore’s product portfolio, establishes a HDPE conduit manufacturing presence in the Pacific Northwest to better serve customers, and enables us to meet growing demands resulting from the expansion of 5G wireless networks and the U.S. infrastructure bill funding supporting broadband to rural and underserved communities. Equally important, the acquisition of Northwest Polymers supports Atkore’s environment, social and governance commitment to address sustainability throughout the supply chain.”
With the addition of Cascade and Northwest Polymers, the Company now has deployed more than $310 million dollars to complete six acquisitions in Fiscal Year 2022.
Bill Waltz, Atkore President and CEO, noted, “Atkore remains diligent in executing upon our capital allocation strategy to drive value creation for our shareholders through organic investments, M&A and stock repurchases.
