Collierville, Tenn., May 4, 2016 – IPS Corporation’s Plumbing Division is pleased to announce the formation of an exclusive distribution agreement with Green Drain™. Green Drain™ produces a trap seal protection device which can be used in new or retroﬁt construction to prevent sewer gas, bugs and odors from entering the room through a ﬂoor drain where the seal has been broken through evaporation or a malfunctioning trap primer. IPS will serve as the exclusive distributor of Green Drain™ waterless trap seals in Plumbing Wholesale, Catalog Supply, Hardware and Retail distribution in North America, Australia and New Zealand.
“We are excited to strengthen the IPS product offering through our agreement with Green Drain™,” said Nick Cassella, IPS Corp. Plumbing Division president. “This partnership is another way that we’re investing and growing our construction products business to add more innovative product offerings under the IPS umbrella for wholesalers and contractors.”
Green Drain™ trap seals will be integrated into the Plumbing Division and will be inventoried in IPS’ two US master distribution centers, as well as in Canada. Green Drain™ trap seals will be available under the IPS “One Order, One Shipment, One Invoice” program.
“The Green Drain product line is the heart of our company and we believe a partnership with IPS Corporation is the best way to bring it to market,” said Jason Bocchino, President and CEO of Green Drain Inc. “Their representation and reputation in the market is top notch.”
Green Drain™ trap seals are designed to be inserted into ﬂoor drains in order to prevent sewer gases, bugs or odors from entering a room due to a broken seal in the p-trap. The revolutionary design works with most commercially available ﬂoor drains and is available in four sizes (2”, 3”, 3.5” and 4”). Green Drain will also ﬁt directly into most 2”, 3”, 3.5” and 4” pipes.
