Uponor North America, a supplier of supplier of PEX-a plumbing, fire safety, and radiant heating and cooling systems for the residential and commercial building markets, will close its Canadian manufacturing facility in Saint John, New Brunswick.

"We've been successfully managing our company throughout the market's downturn," says Anders Tollsten, executive vice president, Uponor North America. "In order to respond to the continued economic conditions and increased transportation costs, we made the decision to consolidate our
production capabilities in North America."

UNA's primary manufacturing facility is located at the company's headquarters in Apple Valley, MN, U.S.

Uponor's global cost-reduction program also indicated that 200 positions would be affected throughout Europe and North America. Approximately 80 employees of those 200 are impacted by the Saint John closure, and Uponor is working with those affected by offering outplacement services and severance packages. UNA will recruit new employees for the Uponor Consolidates Production Operations Apple Valley manufacturing facility, which will minimize the impact on the total personnel reduction in North America.
