  • Uponor North America, formerly Wirsbo, is a company with a long history of service. The company first began as Wirsbo, founded in 1620 in Virsbo, Sweden, forging high-quality steel and weapons for the King of Sweden. Wirsbo emerged as the leader in the polyethylene pipe industry in 1968 when German inventor, Dr. Thomas Engel, developed a method to chemically crosslink polyethylene (PEX). A year later, Wirsbo successfully developed a viable manufacturing process, and in 1984, Wirsbo was incorporated. Uponor of Today Uponor Corporation, based in Helsinki, Finland, is a publicly traded company and operates throughout Europe and North America.
  • Uponor is headquartered in Finland where we’re a well-known name throughout the world. With over 12B feet of Uponor PEX installed, no one even comes close to our experience. In North America, we have the largest market share in plumbing, heating and residential fire safety systems. -Over 2 billion feet of Uponor PEX are currently installed in the US & Canada - Which is equivalent to over 378,000 miles
