Our teams in India have opened up an important new market for rainwater tanks, rising a production technique first developed by Aliaxis in Central America under the Durman brand.

Durman – which joined the Aliaxis family in 2005 – has been making water tanks using a process of rotational moulding for nearly two decades.

Today, its range of water tanks and cisterns are on the market across Central America, Peru and Uruguay, and have reached a much wider audience since it started promoting their use for rainwater harvesting.

Now, our Indian business is building on Durman’s long experience in rotomoulding to meet huge demand in India’s most water-stressed regions for clean and healthy water storage solutions.

It’s a great example of how we can grow in new markets by sharing ideas and best practice across the group, creating new solutions at speed.

And our Indian team have taken the solution to the next level, developing a three-layered anti-microbial tank, with an outer UV protection layer, a middle layer to control temperature and a specially treated inner layer that prevents bacteria forming.

In a further development the team have now increased the amount of recycled material in the tank. Thanks to a six-month development project, recyclate now makes up 24% of the tank’s middle layer, making the product both more sustainable and more cost effective and helping us meet our goal to quadruple the recyclate in our products by 2025.
