BIBBY-STE-CROIX EARNS INTERNATIONAL LIVING FUTURE INSTITUTE’S DECLARE LABEL FOR CAST IRON SOIL PIPE AND FITTINGS
St. Croix, Quebec, CANADA - 1 December 2017 – Bibby-Ste-Croix has earned the International Living Future Institute’s Declare label. The ILFI created Declare, a ‘nutrition-label’ for products that provides a clear, elegant, and informative method to disclose a product’s ingredients, to provide product manufacturers the option for an additional level of confidence – third-party validation from trusted third-party verifiers.
“Transparency is an important ingredient to all Bibby’s products,” said Tom Leonard, president of Bibby-Ste-Croix. “The IFLI’s Declare program offers an important opportunity for us to share our company’s industry leadership in products that contribute to healthy and environmentally-safe design. Declare is designed to transform the way buildings are designed and built making them safer for occupants and first responders. It’s through this kind of transparency that change for the better will occur,” said Leonard.
The manufacturing atmosphere is changing and there are many progressive forward thinking companies that feel strongly about embracing thoughtful sustainability manufacturing practices. Bibby is a manufacturer of cast iron soil pipe and fittings for storm and sanitary plumbing systems. Its products are non-combustible, strong and durable. It’s important that specifiers understand the importance of specifying building products that do not off-gas toxins or generate dangerous gases when burned. Bibby is pleased to be part of the certification program, advocacy tool and philosophy that defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment.

About McWane Ductile
For generations, the McWane family of companies has been an industry leader in water distribution and infrastructure that provide plumbing and clean water works systems. The history of McWane Ductile traces back to 1871, when Charles Phillip (C.P.) McWane entered the foundry business in Lynchburg, Virginia, with his sons, Henry and James Ransom (J.R.). McWane, Inc. was later formed in 1977.
In 1921, J.R. McWane started the McWane Cast Iron Pipe Company, a company that was designed and built as a specialty foundry for small diameter pipe. The McWane Pipe division acquired Pacific States Cast Iron Pipe Company in 1926 with McWane as a 50 percent partner, Atlantic States Cast Iron Pipe Company in 1975, Clow Water Systems Company in 1985, and Canada Pipe Company in 1989. In 2015, these divisions merged to create McWane Ductile.
With over 900 employees, McWane Ductile is recognized today as the country's most experienced manufacturer and supplier of ductile iron pipe. The company's modern facilities offer 3-inch to 36-inch ductile iron pressure pipe and fittings to meet customer needs throughout the United States and Canada.
