LONDON, Ontario - Wolverine Tube (Canada) Inc. has announced that it now has a new company name: Great Lakes Copper Inc.

In July 2008, the London, Ontario-based plant of Wolverine Tube Inc. was sold to a group of Canadian private investors, which includes members of the London management team. The company said it has since invested in new equipment, new products, and acquisitions to offer customers a broader range of products and better service.

“Given our greater penetration in the U.S. market, we felt that a name change would help differentiate our business from that of our former owner,” said Don Wellington, president.

Great Lakes Copper is a leading manufacturer of copper tube products for the industrial, wholesale, and refrigeration markets. The company has been in operation for over 50 years and is headquartered in London, Ontario.
