Uponor Corporation has inaugurated a factory and sales office in China, as the Finnish building solutions provider looks to strengthen its foothold in the Asian building markets.
The manufacturing facility in Taicang, China, is Uponor‘s 14th manufacturing facility globally. Operations commenced there in late 2016, and it is now fully equipped and handling customer orders.
The facility will produce Uponor’s sustainable plumbing solutions and energy-efficient heating and cooling systems for the Chinese residential and commercial building markets.
“Our production base in Taicang is Uponor’s first production base in Asia,” says Werner Witte, vice president of Uponor building solutions in Asia. “On approximately 5 000 square metres, we are producing plastic piping systems for both plumbing and indoor climate systems made from PEXa, PPR and PERT, serving China and other Asian countries.”
At the same time, Uponor has also inaugurated a sales office in Shanghai, China, which will function as the base for all sales activities in East China.
