built for future | designed for life
asset International Structure’s heritage in the corrugated steel pipe market stems back to 1896. ARMCO based in Crawfordsville, Indiana were the first manufactures of the product and since such
a time the product has become a major drainage and construction tool throughout the world.
In 1954, ARMCO established its manufacturing plant in South Wales. With many years of trading success, ARMCO’s UK arm was sold and purchased by Hill & Smith Holdings PLC in 1986 and began trading under the name of asset International Structures, a division of Hill & Smith Ltd.
Our Growth and Evolution
Since 1986 asset International Structures has firmly positioned itself as a market leader in the corrugated steel pipe market with its leading brand name of ‘MultiPlate®’. In its various format, ‘MultiPlate®’ has been produced for supply into the road construction industry for over 100 years.
Over the years asset International Structures has fully embraced the necessity of providing value-engineering solutions. Each project undertaken considers: improving functionality, enhancing life span and assists in reducing costs.
In order to increase the span range, asset ‘StrenCor’ was added to the product suite back in 2000. asset ‘StrenCor’ was the first large scale deep corrugated arch structure installed over a live railway within the UK and was also the widest corrugated steel arch designed and constructed within the UK in recent years.
Over the past ten years, additional product lines have been added to the portfolio including asset BEBO precast arch and asset VSoL retained earth structures for both the highway and rail infrastructure markets within the UK.
2006 saw the Introduction of the precast concrete asset BEBO arch system designed by Swiss engineers. BEBO’s wealth of experience over fifty years, combined with the building of 1200 arch structures worldwide made a perfect addition to asset’s portfolio. asset International Structures became the exclusive licensee for the UK and Ireland in pursuit of the tunnels and bridges market. Since the acquisition of the licence, asset has been able to expand into new markets within the private and public sectors including housing, rail, highways and marine and coastal.
