On May 21, Uponor North America held an official groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate the company’s seventh expansion in the greater Twin Cities area. The $18 million expansion project will add an additional 88,000 sq. ft. for lean manufacturing, office space and additional manufacturing equipment for PEX pipe. The new facility, which is pursuing LEED-Silver certification, is expected to be complete at the end of this year.
“While this is our latest expansion, it is certainly not our last,” said Bill Gray, president, Uponor North America. “This year marks our 25th anniversary in Apple Valley and we are grateful to the leaders of this local community as well as the state of Minnesota for their support as we continue to grow.”
After the expansion is complete, the North American headquarters in Apple Valley, MN, along with the company’s distribution centre and resin-processing centre in nearby Lakeville will bring the total Twin Cities metro area footprint to 654,738 sq. ft. on approximately 50 acres.
