® Steelhead®

CONTECH Stormwater Solutions (CSS, www.stormwater360.com) is a progressive, innovative company with a mission to preserve and protect water resources worldwide. In addition to a complete line of filtration, screening, and separation products, CSS also helps its customers meet regulatory requirements by offering end-to-end stormwater management solutions. CSS’ story begins in 2004 when Vortechnics, a Maine based manufacturer of stormwater treatment products, merged with Stormwater Management of Portland, Oregon. The resulting company, since acquired by CONTECH Construction Products and known as CSS, is a $100 million company that operates from the original two sites at opposite ends of North America, with a third site in Maryland, all linked by their MPLS WAN. For Mike Haskell, IT Manager at CSS, the distributed nature of their facilities presented a host of challenges. Enabling simultaneous bi-coastal order entry and smooth ERP conversion came first, but implementing real-time design and high-quality VoIP and video conferencing systems over existing T1 lines were critical to providing their customers with the innovation and quality they had come to expect from CSS.
