Vortex Pipes has signed a technology NDA with US based Kelley Group over its ShieldLiner technology use and distribution in the US.
Brett Matich, Vortex’s director, stated that “the signing of an NDA with such a reputable party is a milestone even for our company”.
According to Vortex, under the agreement Kelley will be unable to work with any other trenchless pipeline technologies companies for the next two years.
“It further validates the quality of our unique, cutting-edge trenchless pipeline rehabilitation technology and the commercial potential it holds in the US and around the world.
“Our strategy for commercial roll-out is to penetrate key target markets via strategic distribution partners who are well established in the region. In terms of roll-out out the ShieldLiner technology into the US market, this agreement with the Kelly Group is a significant step forward,” Matich said.
