Harvel PlasticsIn a world of constant technological change, outstanding PVC and CPVC pipe extrusions can only be produced by a company with a unique set of skills. Technical mastery, persistent dedication, and testing without compromise - these are the elements that make Harvel Plastics an international leader in thermoplastic extrusions.
Key to Harvel's technological advantage are superbly equipped on-site laboratories at each of our two manufacturing plants. These innovative facilities are at the forefront of product development; they also set and utilize today's most careful, vigilant product testing standards.
What does this mean? It means constant checking and rechecking of the blended materials that go into Harvel products. It also means applying a range of tests to completed products - tough trials that prove excellence beyond a doubt.
From the start, Harvel has been devoted to the quality of our products. Our comprehensive quality program has always been based on Total Quality Management (TQM) and Statistical Process Control (SPC). Harvel was the first in our industry to achieve ISO 9001 quality certification. ISO certification represents just one more benchmark for Harvel products - known throughout the industry for reliable quality.
Harvel's original manufacturing plant was built in Easton, Pennsylvania in 1966; it has since expanded to a quarter of a million square feet. Harvel's plant, warehouse, and distribution center in Bakersfield, California - serving the U.S. West and Pacific Rim - and warehouse/distribution center in Coppell, Texas, affirm the company's stature as a worldwide leader. Wherever produced, Harvel pipe and extrusions embody the highest quality standards, reinforcing Harvel's position as producer of "The Quality Line."
