As seen in the Tried & True Fall 2020 issue
Fratco is pleased to announce our manufacturing capacity has reached new heights with the addition of a second Unicor UC 1800 corrugator to our production line. Unicor’s UC 1800 produces corrugated pipe with an inside diameter between 18” and 60”. Adding a second UC 1800 corrugator has helped ramp up fabrication of Fratco’s trusted, durable and dependable pipe like never before.
As a “first-mover” in the pipe industry, Fratco places tremendous value on our partnership with Unicor, whose machinery allows us to produce more high-quality, large-diameter HDPE and PP pipe. “Investing in an additional Unicor UC 1800 corrugator allows Fratco to expand our production capacity to meet ever-increasing demand efficiently,” said Chris Overmyer, President and CEO of Fratco. “Having invested in the first North American UC 1800, and now bringing the tenth machine to the United States to meet increased orders, illustrates our vote of confidence in Unicor’s technology.”
Unicor, a manufacturing company based in Hassfurt, Germany, develops, manufactures and sells machines ranking among the leading corrugators on the international market. Their partnership with Fratco gives this Midwest-based pipe producer a greater engineering edge in the industry. Unicor’s innovative equipment partnered with Fratco’s standard of bringing technologically advanced pipe to the marketplace continues to be a mutually beneficial relationship. In addition to the UC 1800, Fratco recently purchased the first UC 5XX corrugator from Unicor, allowing a new level of throughputs and quality in small diameter, dual-wall pipe.
