Uponor North America was recently honored with the Minnesota Real Estate Journal Award in the industrial/manufacturing/science category for the design and build-out of the company’s new PEX (crosslinked polyethylene) pipe manufacturing plant in Hutchinson, Minnesota. More than 225 projects were nominated from across the state with honorees selected by a panel of judges.
Uponor opened the 237,000-square-foot facility in May 2018, six months ahead of schedule. The facility has already added more than 50 jobs in the community.
“The Uponor team is world-class,” said Jeremy Baer, principle of TEKTON Engineers, which worked on design of the Hutchinson project. “Their process of creating a vision, developing the project, organizing the team, and executing the project all but ensures that their projects are worthy of emulation and adulation by the industrial community. We at TEKTON Engineers are proud to be trusted partners of the Uponor design process and pleased to see that Uponor is being recognized for its work.”
