OUR HISTORY

POLOPLAST America is a new business founded in 2019, but the roots of our company stretch all the way back to 1954, when POLOPLAST began producing plastic piping systems in Austria. Initially, they were received as a novelty. Over the years, however, POLOPLAST products evolved to incorporate new technologies like sound insulation and five-layer construction that rapidly proved to be superior innovations, helping POLOPLAST set a new standard for piping systems designed for water supply, ventilation, ducting, waste and water discharge, and more.

Today, POLOPLAST America is bringing these industry-leading innovations to the North American marketplace for the first time. We believe builders, plumbers, and engineers in the U.S. and beyond deserve affordable, easy-to-assemble piping systems that are last longer, leave a more eco-friendly footprint, and provide more efficient operating characteristics compared to traditional piping systems.
