Company History

A Moving Story—Avanti International

'Avanti' means Move Forward in Italian, while 'International' represents the continued growth of a small business established in 1978. Led by industry icon David Magill, Avanti began with only one product, AV-100 Chemical Grout (Acrylamide), used primarily to seal leaking sewer lines. For nearly a decade, his son Daniel served as president and Avanti continued researching, developing and perfecting new sustainable solutions to restore aging infrastructure and control groundwater.

Stop Leaks. Stabilize Soil. Control Groundwater. More than just a tagline, these fundamental jobsite solutions compel contractors, engineers, and government workforces to partner with Avanti when facing difficult municipal, industrial and geotechnical challenges. As the industry’s only full service grout provider, no other company supplies acrylamide, acrylic, acrylate, hydrophilic and hydrophobic grouts, ultrafine cement, and the technical expertise that comes with being the most experienced grout supplier in the U.S.
