Woodlands, TX - PURIS, North America’s leading provider of trenchless infrastructure renewal solutions, is pleased to announce the acquisition of the assets of D&D Water & Sewer, Inc. (D&D).  Headquartered in Canton, MI and boasting a 50+ year track record of success, D&D provides the region with specialized underground infrastructure installation and repair solutions.

Mick Fegan, Chief Executive Officer at PURIS, commented, “The combination of D&D’s local expertise and purpose-built operational capabilities enhance PURIS’s ability to address the needs of clients located across North America.  The D&D acquisition expands our self-perform capabilities, driving savings for our clients, and builds on the success of our existing Murphy Pipeline Contractors business, an industry-leader in drinking water infrastructure rehabilitation.  Along with renewing larger diameter potable water transmission lines, we now can replace smaller-diameter lead service lines that have become a growing concern in communities across North America.”
