Uponor: Largest gas pipe & fittings order in the U.S.

Presumably the largest pipe and fittings order in the history of the U.S. gas industry has been awarded to Uponor’s U.S. subsidiary Uponor Aldyl Company. Uponor Aldyl will supply almost 100% of the pipe and plastic fittings business for several northeast and midwest member utilities of Enporion, Inc., a leading provider of strategic sourcing services for both buyers and suppliers in the energy utility industry.The contract runs for three years and the value of the order is approximately 9 million dollars per year.

‘The order was secured by successful co-operation between Enporion, its members and the Uponor Aldyl team’, says Frank Bailor, President of Uponor Aldyl Company.

Enporion and its members had engaged in a standardization effort prior to competing this opportunity - with a goal of finding ways to minimize production costs and maximize common requirements among the buyers. Uponor’s participation in this process, along with other potential suppliers, was key to their ability to prepare a winning proposal.

With a strategy of becoming the most customer friendly company among all gas component suppliers, Uponor Aldyl specialises in gas pipes and fittings, serving the gas utility companies throughout the U.S. The company has production plants in Shawnee and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
