Uponor's CEO Jan Lång resigns, search for a new CEO started

Uponor Corporation's President and CEO Jan Lång has announced his resignation
in order to assume a position in another publicly listed company. Lång will
continue in his current role until late autumn. The Uponor Board will initiate
a recruitment process for his successor immediately. 

Lång joined Uponor in June 2003 and started as CEO on 1 August 2003. During
this time, Uponor has continued on a path from a versatile conglomerate to a
specialist in pipe systems and housing solutions. The past five years have seen
Uponor evolve from a decentralised group of companies to a unified company that
operates under one brand.
