PDM US, a leading manufacturer of copper tubing recently opened its $18.5 million expanded facility in Rock Hill, site of the company’s global headquarters.
The company manufactures insulated and non-insulated copper tubes.
The expansion makes PDM the only fully integrated insulated copper tube manufacturer in the U.S., according to a news release. The company uses state-of-the-art technology in a process that begins with raw copper cathode and culminates with the only UL certified pre-insulated copper tube made in the U.S.
PDM expanded its existing facility by 20,000 square feet allowing for a more stream-lined operation, according to the release. New technology will allow PDM to cast its copper tubing in-house using only American-made parts for production.
“This is an exciting day for the entire PDM team as we complete the expansion of our global headquarters and operations in Rock Hill,” said Pasquale De Martino, U.S. president and CEO of PDM. “We are excited to offer the best, most cutting-edge manufacturing technology and machinery to build the highest quality American-made cooper tubes for years to come.”
PDM originally started in Italy and relocated its world headquarters and main production plant to Rock Hill in 2013.
