Asset International started life in 1953 as the main European manufacturing base for Armco Construction Products and became famous for the W-section safety fence that can still be seen on motorways today. Armco also manufactured corrugated steel bolted structures known as Multiplate and spirally wound corrugated steel pipes.
In 1995 Asset acquired the UK license to manufacture and sell Weholite from KWH Pipe of Finland, one of the world’s most innovative plastic pipes companies. KWH Pipe (now trading as Uponor Infra) continues to heavily invest internally, allowing the company to manufacture state-of-the-art processing machinery. Asset is the world’s largest producer of Weholite.
