Viega Adds Davis-Standard Extruders to Increase PEX Production

To support its growing PEX tubing operation, Viega recently installed several extruders of Davis-Standard, Pawcatuck, CT, USA, at the company’s new 40,780 square-meter manufacturing and logistics facility in McPherson, Kansas. The extruders, customized to Viega’s specifications, include 90mm Mark V models and high performance adjustable extruders, the HPE-150A (150mm) and HPE-75A (75mm). This massive new facility increases Viega’s production and distribution capabilities for PEX products as well as other molded plastic products including the company’s water distribution systems and extruded fittings.

Despite a decline in the residential housing market, Viega is committed to investing in PEX technology as new opportunities outside housing continue to emerge. This includes the increased use of PEX in light commercial applications and the radiant floor heating market.
