Uponor Donates Product to Lennar's Village Builders® Benefit Home
Uponor North America (Uponor) was one of several companies that donated products and materials to support the Village Builders® Benefit Home, sponsored by Lennar® homebuilders and the Greater Houston Builder's Association. The project, located in the northwest Houston suburb of Cypress, Texas, generated net proceeds of $270,000, which benefitted local charities in the greater Houston area, including the Texas Children's Cancer Center, the Alzheimer's Association of Houston and Southeast Texas and HomeAid Houston.
"At Uponor, we have a strong culture of community involvement," says Carl Hines, national builder sales manager at Uponor. "The Lennar Village Builders project is the perfect example of local businesses and associations coming together to make a difference in the lives of people around them. It is a great program that we are very proud to be involved with."
Uponor donated product for the home's plumbing system, which includes its Uponor AquaPEX® crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing, ProPEX® fittings and Engineered Polymer (EP) Multiport Tees.
