Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. has partnered with Uponor, a manufacturer and supplier of plumbing, fire sprinkler and radiant heating and cooling systems.

Through the partnership, Milwaukee will now add M12 and M18 ProPEX expansion tools from Uponor to its line of products designed for the plumbing and heating trades.

“We are dedicated to delivering disruptive innovation by offering solutions to the end user that challenge conventional wisdom,” said Steven Richman, president of Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. “I am proud to partner with an organization that clearly shares this passion and our core values.”

With Uponor’s support, the M12 and M18 ProPEX will launch later this year, offering features such as an auto-rotating head for accurate, one-handed expansion. According to the company, the new tools will not only accelerate the speed in which users can install ProPEX connections, they are also compatible with over 20 tools on their respective battery platforms.

“At Uponor, we realize an essential ingredient for success in the plumbing and heating industry is a quality fitting system and a quality tool,” said Anders Tollsten, executive vice president of Uponor North America. “We know our customers are loyal to the ProPEX connection method, and we want to offer them a tool with the same durability to match. Partnering with Milwaukee will allow us to offer our professional partners this vital combination.”
