The May 1969 issue of Canadian Plastics reported on the construction of a new PVC pipe extruding plant in Prescott, Ont., by Montreal-based Rehau-Plastiks. The facility, one of the largest of its type in Canada at the time, was expected to start production in the first quarter of 1970. Construction costs were pegged at $3 million. All equipment came from Germany, and pipe sizes would range from 1.5 inches to 10 inches. Now, approaching the 40th anniversary of this event, we’re happy to note that Rehau has just announced plans to reopen the Prescott facility, which had been shuttered last fall.
