History of Pipelife Ireland

Pipelife Ireland has over 45 years of manufacturing in Ireland. Pipelife is one of the worlds leading suppliers of plastic pipe systems.  Pipelife manufacture and market a wide range of quality pipe systems, providing tailor-made solutions for municipal infrastructure as well as the industrial and house building sectors.

Pipelife's Qual-PEX plumbing pipe was developed in Ireland and was the first Pex pipe in the world to be awarded the BS7291 Class S Kitemark in 1989 and the first PEX-B pipe in the world to gain water certification for the Scandinavian market.  Since then over 800,000,000 metres of Qual-PEX, 20 times the circumference of the earth, has been supplied to over 30 countires worldwide.

The product range has evolved over the past 45 years in Ireland and the company has diversified from cold water pipe to gas pipe, cable ducting and thermoplastic plumbing pipes which also include underfloor heating pipe.  This diversity in products compelled the Pipelife Group to puchase the original company - Quality Plastics Ltd, in March 2007.

Drawing on our 45 years of manufacturing experience from our production plant in Cork, Pipelfie has been to the forefront in developing innovative products and has been an industry leader for many years.

This commitment to quality and innovation continues today and we are delighted to offer our ECO range of products such as:

Qual-PEX Eco Duo (our pre-insulated and pre-ducted pipe)

Qual-PEX Eco pre-insulation 1/2" & 3/4" pipe

Both are specifically developed with energy conservation and waste water renewal in mind.

Pipelife is Ireland's largest supplier of custom designed underfloor heating systems.  The experience and expertise of our Renewable Department coupled with the security of our design indemnity insurance, top quality products and comprehensive before and after sales technical support ensures that we continue to offer an industry leading service in this growing segment of the residential and commercial market.  Selling exclusively through merchants our service is tailored to making the supply of UFH easy, professional and painless.

Pipelife is one of Europe's leading producers of plastic pipe systems, employing almost 3,000 people in 29 manufacturing facilities in 28 countries.  Pipelife has grown to become a key supplier of innovative products in the plumbing water, gas energy and power distribution, telecommunications and industrial applications sectors.
