Fusiotherm Polypropylene Pipe Has New North American Distributor


By Tristan Korthals Altes

Polypropylene pipe, a niche product known for environmental and performance benefits has a new U.S. distributor.

In May 2007 Aquatherm of Provo, Utah became the exclusive distributor of Fusiotherm potable water pipe and Climatherm heating pipe in the U.S. and Canada. Aquatherm Piping Systems LLC of Romeo, Michigan relinquished its rights to the product. The European manufacturer of both polypropylene products, Aquatherm GmbH, wanted a new approach to marketing the product, according to Jim Brock, a partner in Aquatherm Piping Systems, which will continue to market Firestop, Aquatherm’s line of polypropylene sprinkler pipe products.
