PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (July 13, 2012) — Anvil International, one of the largest and most complete manufacturers of pipe fittings, pipe hangers and piping support systems in the world, recently announced the opening of a 17,000-square-foot stocking facility in Duluth, Georgia. Anvil International is a subsidiary of Mueller Water Products, Inc. (NYSE:MWA), a leading North American provider of water infrastructure products and services.

The Duluth facility stocks products from Anvil International’s mechanical and fire product divisions, including Gruvlok®; hangers and supports; struts and fittings; cast, ductile and malleable iron fittings; pipe nipples and o-lets, along with many other items.

A Commitment to the Region

Anvil has been serving the southeastern United States through its other U.S. distribution centers. The Duluth location is a dedicated facility for this region.

According to Phil Tyree, Anvil’s district sales manager for the southeast, the Duluth stocking location significantly enhances the company’s ability to service customers in the region. “For customers in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina or North Carolina, many orders can be shipped entirely from this location. That should result in faster response time, more flexibility and lower shipping costs.”

Tyree added, “We are committed to this area, and feel that there is great long-term growth potential here for Anvil. As the economy recovers, Anvil will be the partner who can deliver for the region’s distributors.”

The facility is located at 2625 N. Berkeley Lake Road, Duluth, GA. To contact the location directly, please dial 800-451-4414.
