IRVINE, CALIF. -- ACE DuraFlo Systems and Nexstar Inc. jointly announce they have entered into a strategic partner relationship. The Nexstar ePIPE program permits Nexstar members to add ACE DuraFlo’s miniE, epoxy pipe restoration technology to their existing line of services. Nexstar is a member-owned international group of independent service contractors in the fields of plumbing, HVAC and electrical services. Nexstar members are guided by experienced coaches, using vetted business systems and solid peer connections.

“We are excited about the prospect of expanding our installer network in North America by introducing the miniE System to the Nexstar membership,” explained Bill Cooper, president of ACE DuraFlo Systems. “The miniE System is a turning point for the pipe restoration industry and we are happy to be able to offer it through the Nexstar Network of independent service providers.”

“In our continuing scrutiny of the service plumbing industry, we keep our Nexstar eyes peeled for changes in the marketplace, and unique growth technologies like the ACE DuraFlo ePIPE,” said Susan Tigner, strategic partner manager with Nexstar. “Our goal is to provide our members with quality growth and diversification opportunities.”

According to Mary Jean Anderson, president of Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air of San Diego, a member of Nexstar and the largest repiping company in the San Diego market, “When pipe lining of potable water systems was introduced, I knew I had to research pipe lining technology to see if this procedure would be a viable alternative to repiping. I thoroughly researched all of the products available in the industry and determined that the quality of the ePIPE system is superior for many reasons. I have been extremely happy with our decision to offer the ePIPE service in San Diego.”
