Made in America: A New Age of Infrastructure with McElroy Manufacturing

America’s infrastructure was built during a golden era and economic boom in the wake of WWII. Now, more than seven decades later, that infrastructure is approaching the end of its service life. In fact, this year’s Infrastructure Report Card from ASCE gave the U.S. a C-, and the effects will continue to be felt. The impacts are already staggering – every two minutes, there’s a water main break, and the country loses 9,000 swimming pools worth of water daily.

It’s time to fix the backbone of our nation.

On this episode of Made in America, we will take a visit to McElroy Manufacturing to talk to the team powering the adoption of thermoplastic pipe, replacing the aging metallic pipes currently coming up short, and in turn, helping fuel a new era of infrastructure in our country.


McElroy Manufacturing has been serving our country and its community since 1954, including introducing the first self-propelled, tracked plastic pipe fusion machine in the world in 1997. Since, the company has continued to grow into a global leader in fintube and plastic pipe fusion, building on a history of innovation and hard work.

Now, with U.S. infrastructure lagging, it’s setting its sights on how it can help bring our nation’s backbone back to life.

In this episode, host Daniel Litwin will take a visit to the McElroy facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma to visit with Chip McElroy; the two will discuss how, even though their products are made right here in America, their impact is felt around the globe. They’ll also dig deeper into the company’s role and responsibility as a major employer of the region and how being close to University of Tulsa helps keep people in the area and attract talent.
