Oldcastle® Architectural Granted North American Hydro-Flo™ Technology License

ATLANTA, GA – May 26, 2016 – Oldcastle® Architectural has been granted a North American license from Pacific Interlock Pavingstone Inc. of Hollister, Calif., for the Hydro-Flo™ Technology, an advanced formula for the manufacture of permeable pavers. Pacific Interlock Pavingstone’s dedication to delivering quality paver products for over 30 years with modern functionality, innovation and concern for the environment fueled the development of the patented Hydro-Flo™ Technology that is transforming the paving industry.

The Hydro-Flo™ Technology utilizes 48 percent post-consumer recycled materials that allow for 100 percent surface permeability and maintains its durability under pedestrian or commercial traffic. The Hydro-Flo™ advantages bring both environmental and safety benefits to public spaces such as schools, parks, streetscapes and residential homes. Oldcastle companies will be introducing the technology within the Belgard brand of products portfolio.

“With the addition of the Hydro-Flo™ Technology to the Belgard branded product line, the new product offering will transform the industry of permeable paving systems across North America and expands Oldcastle’s stormwater management portfolio,” said Ken O’Neill, EVP of Sales, Marketing and R&D at Oldcastle Architectural.
