Uponor celebrates grand opening of Hutchinson Facility with ribbon cutting event

Uponor hosted a ribbon cutting to celebrate the grand opening of a new 237,000 square foot facility in Hutchinson, Minnesota.

Uponor North America hosted a ribboncutting and plant tour on Thurs- day, Oct. 11, to celebrate the grand opening of its newest expansion, a 237,000-square-foot facility located in Hutchinson, Minn. 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.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony featured speakers including Bill Gray, president of Uponor North America; Jon Sillerud, vice president of operations; Paul Jossart, senior manager of operations at Hutchinson; and Gary Forcier, mayor of Hutchinson. Bill Gray said, “While this is our latest expansion, it is certainly not our last. We are grateful to Hutchinson and com- munity leaders for their support. We look forward to remaining part of the community for years to come.”

Uponor North America first announced the $6.35 million investment in Hutchinson in July 2017 to support the company’s growing U.S. manu- facturing operations. Hutchinson was an attractive location as it provided access to a large manufacturing workforce and the community showed strong support for Uponor.
