    Posted 8/26/2015 by Eric Skare, Product Manager
    The industry is probably getting tired of hearing “another Uponor first”. But, it’s true. We’ve had more “firsts” than any other PEX manufacturer — with our ProPEX® expansion fittings, with our large-dimension pipe, with our AquaSAFE™ multipurpose plumbing and fire sprinkler system.

    Nature is a powerful friend and an equally powerful foe. From wildfires to hurricanes, Mother Nature keeps us in line and reminds us that we are a hearty bunch; when the storms of life pull us down, we pop back up, dust off and move forward.

    As a Journalism major, I’ve always admired those left brainers who think sequentially and analytically – I always imagined they are the science kids, the mechanical engineers sort.

    Creative Technologies Help Reuse Water

    Posted 7/14/2015 by Astrid Mohn

    As I’m sitting at my desk, staring outside at what seems like endless sheets of rain pouring from heaven, it is difficult to imagine that there is a serious drought going on in many parts of our country.

You don’t have to look further than the Uponor website for information about its benefits, value and effectiveness. In fact, your eyes may glaze over as we wax about all its wonderful attributes (it’s quiet, it’s hypoallergenic, it’s cost effective, it’s energy efficient) ….. yes, we can go on and on, but I digress.

    I came upon an article the other day outlining the five biggest architectural and building trends for 2015.
