Uponor Ltd. held an open house on June 1, 2017 at its new Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, ON. Officially completing the merger of its sales and marketing headquarters with its eastern distribution centre, the innovative space supports the growth and business needs of the company and its commitment to meet the increasing demands of its customers and the commercial PEX piping market.
“The new Uponor Ltd. headquarters reflects the business Uponor has become and addresses the current and future needs of customers, partners and staff by adding 8,000 sq. ft. of office space and increasing warehouse capacity by 30 per cent,” says Charlie Harte, general manager, Uponor Canada.
The facility boasts a modern workplace design and large, open spaces for customer service, codes and standards, marketing, sales and training departments. The new open-concept work space creates an environment that encourages increased team collaboration and sustains long-term employee growth. The new and improved warehouse allows for more stock, thus fast-tracking delivery times and supporting ongoing market demands. Uponor also welcomes the addition of an enhanced estimation and commercial piping design services group, which reinforces their position as a leader in commercial PEX piping systems.
New headquarters investments also include the unveiling of the Uponor Academy space, which features a hands-on customer experience centre showcasing interactive commercial and residential PEX piping systems solutions. It also features a new training space accommodating up to 50 attendees, extending the accessibility of popular training programs for commercial plumbing, hydronic piping and radiant heating and cooling systems, which also include training credits for continuing education units (CEUs).
“Uponor is built on a commitment to our customers,” says Bill Gray, Uponor North America president. “These investments in the new Canadian headquarters reflect our focus on enhancing the customer experience and supports our strategic direction.”
