MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. has announced a new partnership with Uponor, a leading manufacturer and supplier of radiant heating and cooling, plumbing, and fire sprinkler systems. The companies have aligned to develop a solution for installing Uponor’s ProPEX® fitting system. Through this partnership, Milwaukee will now add M12™ and M18™ ProPEX Expansion Tools to its line of products designed for the plumbing and heating trades.

With Uponor’s support, the M12 and M18 ProPEX Expansion Tools will launch later this year, offering features such as an auto-rotating head for accurate, one-handed expansion. According to the companies, the new tools will not only accelerate the speed in which users can install ProPEX connections, they are also compatible with over 20 tools on their respective battery platforms.

“At Uponor, we realize an essential ingredient for success in the plumbing and heating industry is a quality fitting system and a quality tool,” said Anders Tollsten, executive vice president, Uponor North America. “We know our customers are loyal to the ProPEX connection method, and we want to offer them a tool with the same durability to match. Partnering with Milwaukee will allow us to offer our professional partners this vital combination.”

The M12 and M18 ProPEX Expansion Tools will be backed by a five-year warranty.
