UTECH North America 2018


UTECH North America and its parent company, Crain Communications, are proud to announce our partnership with Water.org.

About 844 million people — about 1 in 9 — lack access to safe water; 2.3 billion — about 1 in 3 — lack access to a toilet. Water.org is dedicated to changing this and you can help. Together, we can empower families around the world with access to small, affordable loans to make household water and sanitation solutions a reality. Every $60 donated will help provide one family in need with life-changing access to safe water or sanitation.

Every year, UTECH organizes trade shows around the world – Europe, Asia, North America, Central America. We gather the best and brightest minds in the urethanes industry where we share ideas, technology and build our network. At UTECH, we believe our mission goes beyond business and profits. Therefore, it is our hope that our network, our community of business professionals and their companies will join us in supporting such a worthy cause as Water.org that provides such a basic human right as access to water.

Please give what you can and help us toward our financial goal. If you can’t support this cause monetarily, we ask that you spread the message through social media using the hashtag #UTECHWater.

Water.org is an international nonprofit organization that has positively transformed millions of lives around the world through access to safe water and sanitation. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, Water.org pioneers market-driven financial solutions to ensure everyone has access to safe water and sanitation – giving women hope, children health and families a bright future.
