Technology, progress and Phyn Plus at 2018 Uponor Convention
By Jillian MorganHPAC General
Phyn Plus, a smart water monitoring system, will be sold and serviced exclusively through the Uponor Pro Squad.
The system, a joint venture with U.S.-based manufacturer Belkin International, was one highlight of Uponor’s 2018 convention.
Industry professionals from across the United States and Canada joined the company for the event in Las Vegas, NV from April 5 to 6, 2018.
Nearly 200 Canadians attended the event – themed “The Quest for Progress” to align with the company’s new brand campaign: “We mean progress.” Uponor celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.
It featured 22 education sessions, a product showcase and a keynote address by global futurist and author Jack Uldrich on the role of technology in the industry.
Uponor Pro Squad is only available in Toronto, ON at this time. The company said it plans to expand to additional markets in Canada in late 2018/early 2019.
There are five authorized Pro Squad members in Ontario with over 50 potential members throughout Canada.
Authorized installers will receive training to sell, install and service Phyn. Both Uponor and Phyn will provide ongoing plumbing and technical support.
Plumbers across Canada who are interested in becoming an authorized Pro Squad member when it is available in their area can visit www.uponorpro.com.
