LK Pex was founded in 1998 based on the LK Group decision to invest in pipe production capacity to supply other business units of the group with PE-Xa pipe products for floor heating and tap-water systems. In 2000, LK Pex started selling high quality PE-Xa pipes, manufactured in LK’s own production facility in Ulricehamn.
Since the small-scale start, LK Pex has continued to develop high in-house competence in pipe processing, crosslinking technology and tooling design. An increasing export market demand for high quality pipes made LK develop its strategy and expand the sales. LK Pex has since then grown to become a worldwide supplier of pipes to the heating and plumbing industry. LK Pex now produces millions of meters of pipes a year, ranging in sizes from 8 to 110 mm.
LK Pex is a Swedish family-owned company based in the western part of Sweden. In a state of the art pipe production facility in Ulricehamn, Sweden, we manufacture high quality PE-Xa and PE-RT pipes, as well as pipe in pipe products, which are suitable for heating and tap water systems. Our pipes are proudly made in Sweden.
LK Pex maintains an advanced in-house quality laboratory for our pipe product quality control, as well as for development testing and investigation of any application issues. The QC laboratory is equipped for pipe testing according to European and American pipe standards, e.g. crosslinking, microscopy, shrinkage and hydrostatic pressure testing.
Analytical instruments for material testing include DSC (termoanalysis), MFR (melt index) and GC-MS (gas chromatography). The analytical laboratory also has in-house capacity for hygienic testing of pipes for drinking water application.
