Timewell Drainage Products Acquires Midwest Plastic Products

Timewell Drainage Products, a family owned HDPE pipe manufacturer, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Midwest Plastic Products from Spell Capital. Midwest Plastic’s facilities in Jefferson, Wisconsin and Plainfield, Iowa will continue to manufacture drain tile and fittings joining Timewell’s existing facilities in Timewell, Illinois, Sibley, Iowa and Providence, Kentucky.

Midwest Plastic Products, founded by Gary Fish, has more than 40 years of experience serving drainage contractors and farmers with HDPE pipe and accessories. The addition brings robust blow molding capabilities to Timewell’s operation, and Midwest Plastic customers will now receive a complete company manufactured product line including 2” to 18” single wall pipe and 4” to 48” MaXflo dual wall pipe.

“This purchase positions Timewell to be a leader in the water table management and HDPE pipe industry,” said Darren Wagner, Timewell’s president. “The combined company will be ideally situated to serve the corn belt with high quality drainage products and industry leading customer service.”

“This is a good match for our company, our customers and our employees.” according to Midwest Plastic’s President, Dawn Lucas. “I’m happy to be part of this transition and the company’s future growth. We are in the right place.”

The company will remain headquartered in Timewell, Illinois with Darren Wagner serving as the president. With five manufacturing locations, the business will offer a broader product and fitting selection and an expanded geography to better serve new and existing customers.

“This is an opportunity to create value by combining the strengths of two long-standing tile and fitting manufacturers,” said Wagner. “Our customers will benefit from the strategic locations and talent found in both companies as we position ourselves for innovation and growth.”
