European Leader in PP-R Piping Systems Expands Into North America

German Pipe Innovators Establish New American Headquarters in Houston

POLOPLAST began producing plastic piping systems in Austria in 1954. The durable products initially served as drainage pipes and were a novelty in the industry upon their introduction. The pipes’ evolution over the years included new technologies like sound insulation and multilayer construction that rapidly proved to be superior innovations, helping POLOPLAST set a new standard for piping systems designed for water supply, ventilation, ducting, waste and water discharge and more.

Today, POLOPLAST’s German-made polypropylene (PP-R/PP-RCT) pipes and fittings are industry-standard products in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East thanks to their supreme durability, insulation, and ease of installation. Next, the company will introduce its products to the United States.

“Traditional metal piping remains the standard for North American builders because no one has come along to offer a superior product along with top-notch customer support,” says Diego Grüebler, CEO of the new POLOPLAST America Inc. “We’ve spoken to so many builders who are tired of worrying about repairing and replacing their piping systems, who are looking for something better. We’re going to offer a premium product with industry-best customer service and support to become builders’ first choice for piping systems.”

POLOPLAST America will debut its mechanical PP-R/PP-RCT piping systems in January at the AHR Expo 2019 in Atlanta. The pipes and fittings are designed to be assembled in a quick and cost-sensitive manner into systems that are longer lasting, exceedingly eco-friendly, and provide extraordinarily efficient operating characteristics compared to traditional piping systems.

“We’re so confident that our pipes won’t need to be repaired or replaced that we’re offering a 10-year warranty on every system we sell,” says Mr. Grüebler.

POLOPLAST America will be headquartered in Houston, one of North America’s fastest-growing cities and a top market for international builders.
