APPLE VALLEY, Minn. — Uponor was named runner-up in the Manufacturer of the Year category for mid-size companies in Minnesota by the Manufacturers Alliance, an association providing peer-to-peer training, education, and resources that allow Midwest manufacturing companies to grow, improve, and stay competitive.

In addition to the recognition, Uponor was also asked to be one of two companies on the Manufacturers Alliance Tour of Excellence, held July 31, 2012, to showcase its outstanding accomplishments in operational improvements.

“Employee contributions toward lean results are creating a benchmark not only within our industry, but amongst our manufacturing peers as well,” said Jeremy Barth, manufacturing manager of operations at Uponor. “Our employees deserve the recognition for increasing our brand image and visibility in our community.”

The Tour of Excellence at the Uponor North American headquarters and manufacturing facility in Apple Valley, Minn., included topics on tier management, continuous improvement boards, A3 projects, overall equipment effectiveness, and manufacturing execution system.
