When water finds its way through concrete foundations, either because of cracks or an inadequate drainage system, additional waterproofing measures are necessary. Cue Emecole Metro, a 30 plus year manufacturer and supplier of concrete repair and waterproofing product solutions.
Founded as Emecole, Inc. in 1987, the company was a pioneer the development of the low pressure crack injection process, a more cost-effective and time-efficient means for repairing poured concrete foundation cracks. With Emecole’s spring-assisted manual dispensing gun and its line of original two-component injection epoxies and polyurethanes, the low pressure injection process would soon become the new industry standard for repairing cracks in poured basement walls by contractors and homeowners throughout the United States and Canada. The company’s continued growth resulted in the launching of additional products that extended its reach as a concrete crack repair product manufacturer to a one-stop shop for foundation structural stabilization, basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation.
In September, 2016, Emecole was acquired by Metropolitan Industries. Today, as Emecole Metro, the company continues to operate with its same dedicated staff and production capabilities, while allowing both companies to cross-promote each other’s products to territories and markets covered by the other. Emecole Metro’s vast product offering can be used for repairing cracks and various seepage problems occurring in a variety of plumbing and mechanical applications, including concrete lift stations, elevator pits, housed systems, below-grade mechanical rooms, etc.
