Mike Wilson, President, Atlantic Industries Limited (AIL), is pleased to announce the strategic acquisition of the business assets of Harder Luckey & Hargrave Inc (HLH Walls), an industry leader in sound mitigation wall systems.

HLH Walls manufactures lightweight, easy-to-install Tuf-Barrier and Silent Protector noise wall systems – and offers “turn-key” solutions, including: design, product development, testing, engineering, manufacturing and project management. With headquarters in Fergus, Ontario, and a North American distribution presence, HLH also sells its products worldwide through its dealer network.

We ensure HLH customers and suppliers a seamless transition as the HLH team heads-up the new AIL Sound Wall Division under the stewardship of AIL veteran, Dale Gaston, the Division’s Vice-President.
