Plastic pipe manufacturing, a case history

From selling copper and brass components to manufacturing PEX and PERT products - this is the path the US-based company Legend Valve & Fitting, Inc. has taken about 4 years ago. Mike Boehk, General Manager, is very satisfied of this decision, that started with an extrusion line made by Maillefer which allowed to produce high quality dual and triple-layer pipes in-house.

Crosslinked Polyethylene (PEX) tubings are widely diffused for plumbing, fire protection, heating and cooling, and appreciated for their durability and material performance.
Also PERT (Polyethylene of Raised Temperature) tubings have been used for decades in plumbing and heating applications.

This year Legend chose to install a second extrusion line by Maillefer. The company's expertise and know-how have proven essential to enter this new market with great potential.
