NIBCO will combine its PEX extrusion operation and post-processing/distribution operations into a new facility in Lebanon, Ohio. The 130,000-sq.-ft. facility has ample room for expansion of manufacturing and distribution operations, and will make NIBCO’s Dura-PEX manufacturing operations more efficient.

“The move was made in anticipation of NIBCO’s future growth in the PEX market,” announcedRandy Doering, NIBCO general manager – PEX piping systems.

NIBCO Dura-PEX tubing had been previously manufactured at 2775 Henkle Drive in Lebanon, Ohio, which is directly across the street from the new facility. The tubing was then post-processed and shipped from the Franklin, Ohio, facility, which is located 15 miles from Lebanon.

As of Dec. 15, all Dura-PEX tubing has shipped from the new location. All Lebanon and Franklin associates will be relocating to the new Lebanon location and both facilities will be completely exited by the end of January 2009.

The new Dura-PEX address is 2800 Henkle Drive, Lebanon, Ohio 45036.
