Sioux Chief Manufacturing is purchasing REHAU’s North American fittings business for PEX plumbing systems. This will include transition of REHAU’s existing fittings inventory and associated certifications, and the licensing of the technology, to Sioux Chief. The sale was to take effect April 1.

Prior to this, Sioux Chief had been a supplier to REHAU for plumbing accessories and fittings. Production and distribution of cross-linked polyethylene (PEXa) pipe for North American plumbing applications will be managed out of REHAU’s plant in Cullman, AL, where development is also underway for both current and longer range innovations in the heating, fire protection and alternative energy industries.
