The sites, which enjoyed a solid, six-year run before being revamped, are part of a global initiative to incorporate a common web platform across all Uponor companies worldwide. Parent company Uponor Corporation led the way on Nov. 7 with the launch of its new site at www.uponor.com.

“This initiative marks the first time in history that all Uponor markets worldwide are using a common web platform,” says Don Costello, web product manager at Uponor. “The new sites all have a clean, modern design, offer clearer navigation and are fully optimized for search and mobile.”

Several new features for the North American sites include:

  • A blog that allows users to post comments and questions

  • A virtual city where people can click on either a single-family home or a commercial building to see and learn about the Uponor products and systems in the structure

  • A page where potential customers can locate an Uponor sales representative in their area.

“The modularity and flexibility of the new platform provides greater options for content, search and social integration, while also offering easier navigation for the general public,” says Costello. “It also provides a better environment for future initiatives, as we continue to explore areas where we can enhance our online presence.”

Uponor, Inc. is an award-winning provider of plumbing, fire safety and radiant heating and cooling systems for the residential and commercial building markets. In 2013, the company was named Manufacturer of the Year by the Manufacturers Alliance in addition to a Top 100 Workplace by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
