A factory that makes fittings for uPVC doors and windows was launched in Iran by Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh, the country’s minister of industries, mining, and trade.

Located in Khorasan Razavi, this new factory will complete the domestic production chain for such building components. During the facility’s inauguration, Representative Ramezan Ali Sobhani said:

“Some 200 billion rials (over $53.3 million) worth of private sector investments plus more than $21.3 million worth of banking facilities have gone into this project, which will create direct jobs for 70 people.”

uPVC has become the most prevalent door and window framing material for residential units, but it is also gaining popularity in the commercial sector thanks to its highly-efficient performance ratings. While some people say it lacks durability, innovations have improved the material’s structural quality. Since the 1940s, this polymer has truly evolved to become an adaptable, safe, environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and universally used building material.

With the opening of this factory, Iran will have enough supply of uPVC to use in many applications, particularly in construction.
