Aquatherm North America held a grand opening ceremony and open house on April 4 to celebrate its new 82,000-sq-ft headquarters and fabrication facility in Lindon, UT.
Utah Lieutenant Governor Spencer J. Cox, Lindon Mayor Jeff Acerson, and Aquatherm Worldwide executive leadership addressed a crowd of more than 75 guests assembled to see the new facility. Aquatherm leadership traveled from the worldwide headquarters in Attendorn, Germany, to participate in the occasion.
According to Cox, “As Aquatherm was looking around for a location in the United States, [the leadership] looked at several other states and chose Utah. Although there were many reasons for choosing Utah … most importantly, it was about the people. Aquatherm has a culture of caring about people. It’s a family-run company whose values and culture will fit perfectly here in Utah.”
The symbolism of the Worldwide-North America partnership was represented by a ceremonial heat-fusion connection, which joined two pieces of 6-in. Aquatherm Blue Pipe® together, one labeled with a German flag and the other with U.S. and Canadian flags.
“We’re so excited. It’s very impressive to see the growth that’s happening in Aquatherm all around the world but especially here in the United States … Utah is going to play a critical role in that growth over time,” Cox added.
Attendees toured the new facility, which features space for operations, including office space for corporate staff, engineering, and quality-assurance laboratories; warehouse space; and a state-of-the-art design and fabrication facility. The company says the warehouse now represents one of the largest concentrations of PP-R piping in North America and will provide customers access to a full inventory line of Aquatherm piping systems ranging from .5- to 24-in.
During the open house, the company’s Design and Fabrication Services Team also performed multiple demonstrations showcasing large-diameter fusion, custom spool and manifold design and creation, and the new Hot Tap Tool, which was designed in partnership with McElroy.
“We are excited about our new North America headquarters and the opportunities it will afford us and our partners. The building was constructed and designed to ensure the continued expansion and improvement of our fabrication and design abilities, which are a material benefit for those who support and use Aquatherm PP-R piping systems,” stated Jordan Hardy, CEO, Aquatherm North America.
Aquatherm’s new address is: 825 West 600 North, Lindon, UT 84042.
