KME Yorkshire Ltd, part of the KME Group, Europe’s largest producer of copper and copper alloy materials, will make its inaugural appearance at Ecobuild this year.

The UK based copper tube manufacturer, which supplies market leading products to companies across the globe, will be showcasing three renewable energy products that it is looking to introduce into the UK market under the Yorkshire Copper Tube brand, and will be promoting the environmental benefits of copper as a material.

First, a reduced thickness copper plumbing tube with polyethylene covering, second, a concealed wall heating system and third, an under floor panel heating system, will be exhibited on stand N1566 and a team of Yorkshire’s technical experts will be available to explain and demonstrate the benefits of each product.

Focus groups will also be held throughout the exhibition for plumbers, specifiers, and contractors to provide feedback on each of the products and suggest any ideas that would be of benefit to potential buyers in the UK.

Neil Overton, Commercial Director at KME Yorkshire Ltd said: “These products are already very successful across Europe under the KME brand, and we are hoping to introduce them to the UK as part of the KME Yorkshire Ltd product range.

We took the decision to make our inaugural appearance at Ecobuild this year to raise awareness of the renewable qualities and environmental benefits of our products.

We look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand and are keen to hear the feedback on the three renewable energy products that we are looking to introduce into the UK this year.”

Operating from one of the most modern factories in the world, KME Yorkshire Ltd. combines advanced manufacturing methods and sophisticated quality control techniques to ensure that only consistently high standard tubes are supplied to customers.

On-going substantial investment programmes are testament to the company’s commitment to excellence in product quality and customer service.

All Yorkshire’s copper tubes carry the British Kitemark and the company’s Quality Management System is BS EN 9001 approved.
