Introducing the new Granite Inliner
Granite Inliner was formed in June 2018 through a series of mergers and acquisitions of several of the industry's leading wastewater infrastructure renewal companies, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Granite Construction, one of the nation's largest diversified heavy civil contractors and construction materials producers. The coming together of Layne Inliner, Kenny Construction and LiquiForce – three strong brands in the water/wastewater system rehabilitation industry – created an established leader in the trenchless renewal market on Day One of operations.
Granite Construction's first foray into the water/wastewater rehabilitation market was in 2012, when it acquired Kenny Construction Company. Granite made a bigger move in 2018 by acquiring Ontario, Canada-based LiquiForce in April, then Layne Christiansen Company and its subsidiary Layne Inliner in June. As Granite Inliner, these three firms will undeniably reshape the trenchless rehabilitation market.
In a press release about the latest acquisition that brought the Inliner® CIPP brand into the Granite family—the company said, "A combination with Layne represents the next logical step in the evolution of Granite's strategy to diversify its service offerings by expanding in the water and wastewater market. Since acquiring Kenny Construction Company in December 2012, which gave Granite an entrance into the water markets, Granite has made a number of investments in the water sector to strengthen its capabilities, expand its footprint, and grow its presence. Now, with the addition of Layne's leading portfolio of services, Granite will be better positioned in water infrastructure and wastewater rehabilitation."
