Apple Valley-based Uponor North America recently held a special networking reception and plant tour at its headquarters facility for Mikko Hautala, ambassador of Finland to the United States, Elaine Kumpula, honorary consul of Finland for Minnesota, and several other distinguished visitors and guests, according to an Uponor news release.

The purpose of the reception, held on the evening of May 17, was twofold, said Uponor NA President and event host Andres Caballero: first, to celebrate the manufacturer’s strong business connection to Finland, home of its parent company, Helsinki-based Uponor Corporation; and second, to “showcase both our ambitions and achievements related to sustainable business practices.”
