Copper comes from the very core of the earth. From there it bubbled to the surface through vast volcanic cracks millions of years ago. Now cooled and solidified these upsurges have become our copper mines.

Archaeological discoveries have shown that copper tubes were first used to carry water around 2750 BC at Abusir in the Nile Delta. The tubes are still in a remarkable state of preservation highlighting the longevity of copper products.

Today, throughout the world, more and more people are concerned about the world’s natural resources. Copper gives them the best chance to choose a recyclable plumbing material.
