Layfield will handle direct sales and distribution of CSPE products.
“We are a manufacturer,” says Stephen Roades, Vice President of Burke Industries’ Liners, Covers & Roofing Division. “That is our core area. We are deeply focused on quality control, and we are insistent on quality control from manufacture through installation. With this agreement, we can focus exclusively on our area—manufacturing” Layfield will oversee installation and fabrication of CSPE geomembranes.
Layfield has a long record of working with CSPE geomembranes. The material is often used in projects that require long service lives, such as for reservoir liners and floating cover systems. CSPE products have shown service lives that exceed 25 and 30 years in exposed environments around the world.
Burke Industries and Layfield will work together to build and support the marketplace, including further development of the CSPE material and its use for different containment applications, while taking responsibility in their respective areas for quality control.
