Prinsco is a third-generation, family-owned company committed to providing quality, water management solutions. We started in 1975 as a manufacturer of cement pipe, but quickly transitioned to HDPE plastic products to better serve the needs of our Midwestern agricultural market. Prinsco’s flagship manufacturing facility, located in Prinsburg, Minnesota, is still in operation and remains a vital part of our growing, 11-plant network throughout the United States and Canada.

Customer service culture
All Prinsco pipe is engineered with integrity and known for its gold stripe, which is a visual reminder of our commitment to industry-leading quality. We take great pride in a manufacturing process that includes on-site testing labs at all plants, engineered resin blending and a rigorous quality control process.
Our commitment to quality is matched only by our intense focus on customer service. Prinsco’s company mission is to care, contribute and solve. It drives our success and has created a “whatever it takes” culture throughout our entire organization – from plant workers to truck drivers to sales representatives to billing managers.
Twenty years ago, Prinsco diversified its core business to serve the high performance water management needs of the civil construction market. We started by extending our product lines with large diameter, high performance options. We also expanded our product portfolio with innovations such as Integrity Fittings and ECOFLO 100 green-friendly pipe with a 100-year service life. These quality products, combined with our focus on customer service, have helped us create strong relationships with our distributor, contractor and engineer customers.
More recently, Prinsco began serving the commercial / residential market with water management products for retail and DIY customers. We created a manufacturing/supply network, called the National Drainage Alliance (NDA), in order to better serve retailers with a broad, geographical presence. In the last few years, our NDA network has grown to include more partners and offer even more products to retailers throughout the United States.
Leadership & expansion
Today, Prinsco continues to be a global leader in agriculture water management with an ongoing commitment to provide education, advocacy and technical expertise on industry issues. We are also growing and expanding to serve our other key markets with 9 manufacturing plants in the United States and 2 manufacturing plants in Canada.
Prinsco’s mission statement is embraced company-wide, across every department and every location. It’s very simple.
“To care. To contribute. To solve.”
Every person in every area cares about their role in serving customers, contributes to a better outcome whenever possible, and proactively solves problems along the way.
We also enjoy the journey! Watch this short video about our Mission statement that was made with the help of teams at each Prinsco location and shown at our 2014 Prinsco Companies Annual Meeting.
“To provide industry-leading solutions for water quality & preservation; agricultural efficiency & production; and sustainable systems & products.”
Prinsco is guided by a set of values that have been established and fine tuned over the years to be a true reflection of how we want to do business, treat our customers and serve our communities. We encourage our Prinsco team members to “live” our mission and values each and every day.
To strive for excellence in everything we do. To make decisions based on what is right instead of what is easy. To honor our commitments; be honest, consistent and fair.
SAFETY & WELLNESS
To encourage and reward outstanding personal safety while striving towards an accident, illness and injury free work place. To create a culture and lifestyle of health and wellness excellence for our employees and their families.
To see the world through our customers’ eyes. To grow lasting relationships, provide complete support and offer comprehensive solutions by anticipating the needs of those we serve.
To be quick to take blame and slow to receive credit. To be a strong team built on the unique talents and skills of each individual working toward a shared vision.
To pursue both personal and corporate growth. To acknowledge and nurture the important balance between our work lives, our personal lives, our spiritual growth, and our celebration of the journey.
To embrace change, look at things differently, strive for continuous improvement, leverage opportunities and avoid stagnation in every aspect of our business. To transform ideas into reality by taking deliberate risks and overcoming the impossible.
