Strata Systems acquires makers of the Sleeve-Itâ„¢ System

Strata is a leading manufacturer of polymeric geogrids for segmental retaining walls, reinforced steep slopes, and other applications dealing with soil reinforcement. With distribution throughout North America and in numerous countries overseas, Strata is rapidly growing into new geographic markets and applications.

The Sleeve-It System, invented and brought to market by Mr. Jon Calle, addresses a critical need in the segmental retaining wall industry for code compliant installation of fencing and guards at the top of these walls. As a pre-engineered foundation system for post integration, the patent pending Sleeve-It Product allows fencing to be installed directly adjacent to the walls, eliminating the required three foot set-back that was previously standard practice.

The full acquisition of Advanced Hardscape became effective August 20, 2007. Mr. Calle has become an employee of Strata, and will be part of Strata’s key management team as its Sleeve-It Product Manager. All production, research and development, assembly facilities and central inventory point will remain in their current locations for the foreseeable future.

"With several regional distribution points and a full sales and engineering staff Strata gives the Sleeve-It Product the resources necessary to continue servicing our customers at the highest possible level through this period of rapid growth. I look forward to playing a key role in the continued market penetration and further research and development of the product line." comments Jon Calle.

According to Chip Fuller, President of Strata, "The acquisition of Sleeve-It expands Strata’s product line and is extremely complimentary with our current distribution and sales model. This will further increase our involvement in the segmental retaining wall market, and add significant synergy to what we do. The Sleeve-It System will create more fuel for our growth and international expansion, while addressing a real need in our industry for a solid solution to a common problem for segmental retaining walls."
