ATLANTA - November 18, 2013 - Tensar International, the global leader in geosynthetic site development technology, has announced an expanded partnership with G & O Supply Co., Inc., which will increase Tensar's product accessibility and support service in Mississippi. This new partnership will allow for increased Tensar TriAx Geogrid availability to local customers, especially along the Gulf Coast and North Mississippi.
G & O Supply Co., Inc., is Mississippi’s leading distributor of construction drainage products for the site development marketplace. The locally owned Mississippi corporation, based in Tupelo, Miss., has been in the business for more than 50 years and currently has four fully staffed distribution locations. As a result of the new partnership, Tensar TriAx Geogrids and Tensar-branded BX Geogrids will now be available at each of the four stockyards.

Expanding the reach of Tensar Geogrids into the Mississippi market enables them to provide solutions for all types of civil site design projects, including but not limited to new and expanding industries, municipal projects, roads, and rail spurs.
“Tensar is an ideal fit for us because of the complementary product line it offers,” said Chuck Carson, G & O Supply Co., Inc. general manager. “We will leverage our local knowledge and extended network of contractors to create a powerful and complete solution for our clients while striving to provide increased regional growth.”
