A West Chester-based construction products company is growing.

Contech Engineered Solutions announced this week it has acquired certain assets of Kansas-based Kahn Culvert Inc.

Privately]held Kahn Culvert produces corrugated metal culvert drainage products including pipe, slotted drain systems, end sections, joints, fittings and bands. Contech will continue to operate its manufacturing facility in Paola, Kan.

The expansion will boost local service for Contech customers in Kansas and Missouri, and throughout the Midwest and South Central United States.

“This acquisition is an investment in Contech’s growth strategy for our drainage business, and strengthens our footprint in the region,” said Ron Keating, president and CEO of Contech. “Kahn Culvert is known for its solid customer relationships, and we look forward to continuing to provide them with this exceptional quality and customer]focused service under the Contech umbrella of engineered products and services.”
