Asahi/America Opens New Fabrication Facility in Louisiana

June 22, 2023
Massachusetts-based manufacturer adds to its capacity for large-scale thermoplastic prefabrication with 59,000-sq-ft plant. And more work is underway.


LAWRENCE, MA, June 2023 - Thermoplastic valve and pipe manufacturer Asahi/America, Inc. opened the doors and celebrated the grand opening of its newly constructed Louisiana-based fabrication shop in Paulina, LA, with customers, partners, employees, and local government officials on June 1, 2023.

The new facility focuses on large-scale thermoplastic pre-fabrication and is known as Asahi/America – PPI, a division of Asahi/America.

Construction of the new 59,000-sq-ft fabrication facility finished in late 2022 in a neighboring city adjacent to the original facility. It will add over 36,000 additional square footage and improve efficiencies of large-scale and complex pre-fabrication piping projects. Asahi/America initially expanded its fabrication capabilities and operational capacity during the acquisition of Performance Plastics Inc. (PPI) in 2018.

“Our customers showed us the need to offer a fast response, best-in-class, value-add plastic fabrication offering. In 2019, our board of directors approved the construction project, and today, we’re proud to share this facility with our business partners,” said Daniel S. Anderson, Asahi/America’s president and chief executive officer.

The new facility is located at 2541 Highway 3125 Paulina, LA 70763.
