Global Flood Solutions Opens US Headquarters in Massachusetts to Provide High Tech Solutions for Flood Prevention

Global Flood Solutions America Offers the Next Generation Product to Sandbags -- Cheaper, More Effective, and Faster

WESTWOOD, MA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  Global Flood Solutions, the market leaders in flood prevention in the US, Europe & Asia, is pleased to announce the opening of Global Flood Solutions America with its US headquarters based in Massachusetts. Global Flood Solutions America services communities in coastal regions and land near rivers and lakes which are especially prone to flooding but as seen by last year's rainy season, flooding can happen anywhere there are torrential rainstorms. 

Global Flood Solutions America provides a completely revolutionary and environmentally-friendly approach for rapid protection against flooding. Its Big Bag System, based on the latest water proofing technology applied in textile manufacturing, offers the fastest, most reliable solution to hold back large water masses in a safe way that is affordable, effective and proven. Better and more cost effective than sand bags, the Big Bag System can be easily stored in strategic flood prone locations (public works facilities, fire and rescue buildings, storage facilities) and can be quickly deployed in the event of rising flood waters. The Big Bag System can be filled and assembled in less than two minutes and is fully re-usable if utilized for temporary applications or safely made permanent -- due to its high stability and robust polypropylene membrane.

"We're excited to have expanded operations and established headquarters in Massachusetts, stated Frank McNamara, President of Global Flood Solutions America. "One of our key goals is to prepare, control and eliminate costly flooding hazards in New England using our advanced solutions for flood prevention."

As cities and towns grow, flooding becomes more frequent because their infrastructure cannot accommodate the drainage needs of land that's paved and highly developed. Additionally, aging dams and levees are prone to failure, leading to the kind of devastation that New Orleans saw after Hurricane Katrina. Global Flood Solutions America has established itself in New England as a direct response to the rising need from cities and towns to control and prevent local flooding. Combining its innovative patented technologies in textile manufacturing and its flood prevention expertise, Global Flood Solutions America delivers time and cost saving flood solutions.
