IPEX Discontinues WarmRite In North America

November 3, 2008

Effective Oct. 31, 2008, IPEX Inc. will discontinue the production and the sale of WarmRite Floor® pipe, fittings and accessories for the North American hydronic heating market.

“Unfortunately, the WarmRite product line no longer meets the business targets that IPEX requires,” the company announced. “Increased competitive pressures and poor market conditions have resulted in the continuing decline of WarmRite sales and profitability.”

Select WarmRite components will remain in the IPEX inventory for a period of time in order for customers to complete, maintain and service their heating systems. The current limited warranty will continue to apply to all WarmRite products installed.

IPEX will continue to service future plastic piping system needs with its broad offering of core products. It has stated it will “be pleased” to work with contractors and installers to resolve any inconvenience this product discontinuation may cause.
