HONESDALE, PA — A Honesdale-based manufacturer of insulated copper tubing is revolutionizing the HVAC industry and has plans to expand, according to Wayne County’s economic development corporation (WEDCO).
The tubing manufactured at the PTubes, Inc. (PT) facility is a key component of HVAC systems, according to a news release from WEDCO. The materials and technologies developed by PT enhance reliability, increase energy efficiency, and reduce the carbon footprint and energy usage of the HVAC system. Insulating 10 feet of copper line saves the energy equivalent of one tree, said Nicola Pilone, PT president and CEO.
The Honesdale manufacturing facility, established in 2018, is responsible for 100 percent of PT’s products, which are shipped throughout the United States and Canada. The two countries are the largest HVAC markets in the world, according to the news release, and the company chose its Honesdale location because of the available workforce. PT employs approximately 20 and has plans to expand.
PT is a partnership between Pilone and Feinrohren, an Italy-based manufacturer of copper tubing. PT develops new products for the HVAC/refrigeration industry and has several patents pending in the United States and Canada. They ship approximately 3,000 line sets per day or 650,000 units a year from Honesdale.
“Because we could not meet in person, Troy Bystrom, Pocono Mountain Film and TV, created a video of PT that we can share with our community,” said WEDCO executive director Mary Beth Wood. A link to the video is found on WEDCO’s homepage at https://WayneEconomic.com. “The video provides insight into a manufacturing business that chose to locate in Wayne County and is thriving.”
WEDCO president Wayne Stephens praised PT. , saying its patented, specialized technology for insulating copper tubing is revolutionizing the HVAC industry. Tony Herzog, from state Sen. Lisa Baker’s district office in Hawley, presented PT with a certificate of recognition.
