“Parson Environmental has a 35-year history providing effective storm and sewer rehabilitation products and treating its customers the right way,” said Mike Vellano, president and CEO of Vortex Companies. “Parson’s product portfolio and commitment to customer satisfaction complement what we do, making them an excellent fit to our expanding line-up of trenchless product solutions.”
Parson Environmental was founded in 1985 with the simple vision of developing and supplying quality products and excellent service to the sewer rehab market.
“Our first product, the Parson Manhole Insert, was very well received by municipalities, engineers and contractors. That led us into introducing products for leak stopping, manhole lining and corrosion protection,” said Craig Gaul, owner and president of Parson Environmental. “I can’t think of a better fit than Vortex as we look ahead to the future, where we can combine our line of Parson products and find new ways to better serve our customers.”

“Craig’s experience and focus in this area are a tremendous asset to our Vortex Products division,” said Andrew Gonnella, executive vice president of products at Vortex Companies. “From development, manufacturing and a distribution prospective, he will strengthen what we have to offer our customers.”
