AMERICAN Unveils Online News Center

AMERICAN Cast Iron Pipe Company recently unveiled its new online News Center, designed to be media’s and customers’ go-to source for: the latest in industry trends, product development and manufacturing news; how AMERICAN’s products are solving customers’ tough challenges; and a look inside AMERICAN – our products, our people, our way.

The redesigned and interactive News Center contains customer stories, web videos, company announcements and more.
