Uponor Innovations Identifies
Emerging Markets and Game-changing Products.
Uponor, Inc. is excited
to announce the launch of Uponor Innovations LLC — a new, wholly
owned subsidiary and corporate enterprise designed to identify
emerging markets and create new, game-changing products.
“We are very fortunate to work with very talented and creative
people at Uponor,” says Bill Gray, president of Uponor North
America. “But, we have to recognize that no single company has a
monopoly on good ideas. Uponor Innovations is one way we can
connect with others externally and help turn their good ideas
into a reality.”
Anyone from entrepreneurs to startups, business owners,
management teams, investors and funds can submit an executive
summary of their ideas to www.uponorinnovations.com. Uponor is
open to exploring ideas that may or may not build on its
existing product profile and business model.
“Someone may have a good idea, but lack the resources to gain
any traction or success,” says Gray. “That’s where Uponor can
help. We have a successful and established infrastructure to
help introduce ideas, products, processes and technology to our
This infrastructure includes staff, funding, manufacturing,
marketing, sales, technical support and a national distribution
network. Uponor Innovations is not an investment portfolio
enterprise, but rather its approach is to pursue involvement
through existing Uponor assets and resources..

Gray believes that building
an innovative culture internally and externally is a great
opportunity to build products and create new processes and
technologies that not only help its customers differentiate
and grow their business, but also inspire the industry with
fresh, innovative and sustainable solutions, and enrich
people’s way of life.
“The entrepreneurial spirit is a core part of our culture at
Uponor; it’s in our DNA,” Grays says. “We’re very excited
about this new venture where we can all capitalize on better
ideas and solutions to revolutionize our industry.”
