LINDON, Utah – Aquatherm North America, the U.S. and Canadian subsidiary of polypropylene-random pipe system manufacturer Aquatherm Worldwide, recently held a grand opening ceremony and open house to celebrate its new 82,000-square-foot headquarters and fabrication facility located in Lindon, Utah.
Utah Lieutenant Governor Spencer J. Cox, Lindon Mayor Jeff Acerson and Aquatherm Worldwide executive leadership addressed an enthusiastic crowd assembled to see the new facility. Aquatherm leadership traveled from the Worldwide headquarters in Attendorn, Germany, to participate in the momentous occasion.
The symbolism of the Worldwide-North America partnership was represented by a ceremonial heat-fusion connection, which joined two pieces of 6-inch Aquatherm Blue Pipe together, one labeled with a German flag and the other with U.S. and Canadian flags. Just as the company’s heat-fused joints are as strong as the pipe itself, this partnership is built to last.
Attendees toured the new facility, which features ample space for operations, including office space for corporate staff, engineering and quality-assurance laboratories; extensive warehouse space and a state-of-the-art design and fabrication facility. The warehouse now represents one of the largest concentrations of PP-R piping in North America and will provide customers access to a full inventory line of Aquatherm piping systems ranging from ½ inch to 24 inches.
During the open house, the company’s Design and Fabrication Services Team also performed multiple demonstrations showcasing large-diameter fusion, custom spool and manifold design and creation and the new Hot Tap Tool, which was designed in partnership with McElroy.
The new facility was built to a high environmental standard using a large selection of flagship piping systems (Aquatherm Blue Pipe and Aquatherm Green Pipe), as well as the newer Aquatherm Red Pipe and Aquatherm Black System piping systems, which are in the R&D stage. Aquatherm’s new address is: 825 West 600 North, Lindon, Utah 84042.
