Uponor plans to close its PEX pipe production site in Mostoles, Spain and transfer production to the company’s facilities in Virsbo, Sweden. Uponor is starting employee consultation with the local works council. The company will offer supportive measures for employees affected by the changes.

The Mostoles plant manufactures PEX pipe for the south European markets. As part of the European transformation programme, started in autumn 2015, the company now plans to transfer the production to rationalise manufacturing and reduce cost in supply chain and production operations.

Our main PEX pipe markets are in the Nordic countries and Germany, and therefore the manufacturing location in Virsbo is well suited to serve those customers,” says Jan Peter Tewes, President, Building Solutions – Europe.

Uponor will continue to have its logistics centre and the sales & marketing organisation in Spain.
