Spring 2012

Problem-solver with geosynthetics

TenCate Geosynthetics realized a strong organic growth in sales worldwide in 2011. This strong performance is the result of the introduction of new products in markets for infrastructure (soil stabilization and soil reinforcement), as well as a growing need for sustainable environmental concepts, and water management and marine solutions.

The market share has grown worldwide. TenCate Geosynthetics is now going to focus even more on the water & environmental management segment, and the group wishes to present itself more explicitly as a full product solution provider.

The value proposition of TenCate Geosynthetics lies in its extensive technological knowledge; the environmental friendliness and sustainability of the solutions offered; the short response time to orders, thanks to an international network of companies and sales offices; and its proven reliability as a project partner.

The strong market demand in the United States and the logistic, efficiency and cost measures implemented in previous years in the US and Europe have also been factors contributing to this growth. TenCate Geosynthetics is a flexible organization, which has quickly responded to the opportunities that came along in 2011.

With the acquisition of Emas Kiara Industries in March 2011, TenCate Geosynthetics has improved its position in Asia and increased its market share. Emas Kiara is an important producer of a wide range of geosynthetic products and solutions.
