St. Louis-based waterworks and industrial supplies distributor Core & Main will acquire the assets of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) product distributor Geothermal Supply Company (GSC).

Founded in 1996, GSC is a distributor and fabricator of HDPE pipe and other related products, primarily serving the geothermal, water and sewer industries from a single location in Kentucky.

“Adding GSC to the Core & Main family will create exciting new opportunities for us in an important and expanding area for HDPE. The GSC team’s wealth of knowledge and expertise in the industry fit in well with our existing fusible product offering, and we are confident this will be a positive partnership for both new and existing customers,” said Core & Main Chairman and CEO Steve LeClair in an April 8 news release.

GSC provides an array of fusible offerings specifically designed to aid in installing and maintaining geothermal systems, as well as water and sewer.

“From the beginning, GSC set out to fill a void in the geothermal industry by delivering the highest quality HDPE products and services to help customers achieve success. Joining Core & Main will offer our team continued opportunities to deliver on these goals,” GSC Owner and Operations Manager Matt Lile said. “I am immensely proud of our progress and growth over the years and eagerly anticipate all we can accomplish as part of Core & Main.”

Core & Main ranked No. 1 on MDM’s 2023 Top Distributors List for Industrial PVF and No. 9 for Industrial Distributors. Earlier this month, the company expanded into the underground utility industry with the addition of EGW Utilities.
