HUTCHINSON, Minn. — Uponor North America recently hosted a ribbon cutting and plant tour to celebrate the grand opening of its newest expansion, a 237,000-square-foot facility located in Hutchinson, Minnesota.
The plant was completed earlier this year, six months ahead of schedule, and has already produced more than 30 million feet of PEX tubing, while adding more than 40 jobs in the community.
Uponor North America first announced the $6.35 million investment in Hutchinson in July 2017 to support the company’s growing U.S. manufacturing operations. Hutchinson was an attractive location as it provided access to a large manufacturing workforce and the community showed strong support for Uponor.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place in the morning, while the tour of the Center for Technical Excellence immediately followed. At Hutchinson High School, guests toured the newly completed Center for Technical Excellence. The CTE is part of TigerPath, a skilled-workforce training program funded by 28 community partners, including Uponor.
