We don’t just talk about the days of clay tile and local kilns—we were there. As other local companies fell victim to new materials, new forces and new methods, Fratco grew and adapted to better serve our customers in an ever-changing market.


We were first to plastics, first to recycled materials and first to zero waste. Fratco has not only managed to survive among massive competitors, but our dedication to craftsmanship and quality have put us out front as the trusted drainage material provider.


A Fratco forefather once said, “Price, quality and service… Pick two.” While we certainly don’t ignore price, we put quality and service above all else. With collective decades of knowledge under our belts, we can solve any drainage problem our customers encounter.


Fratco engineers and quality technicians are dedicated to making sure every project has the right pipe. Our quality lab rigorously tests materials so that pipe weathers the test of time and the elements. That’s why we display boldly on the walls of our facility: If it isn’t perfect, it doesn’t ship.
