The Manufacturers Alliance named Uponor as the 2013 Manufacturer of the Year in the large-company category. The association provides peer-to-peer training, education, and resources to Midwest manufacturing companies.

“We are honored to receive this recognition and award and are privileged to be part of the Manufacturers Alliance where we not only share our best practices, but where we also learn from others,” said Uponor North America President Bill Gray.

Last year was the first year the company was nominated and came in as runner-up in the Manufacturers Alliance’s Manufacturer of the Year awards.

“I am excited for Uponor and for our employees,” said Rusty Callier, director of Operations. “This award validates what we have accomplished and will be used as a springboard to sustained success.”
