Company Profile

As a part of Vallourec Group, VALLOUREC TUBES (former VALLOUREC & MANNESMANN TUBES) was founded in October 1997 as a joint venture between the French Vallourec Group (55% of shares) and the German Mannesmannroehren-Werke (45% of shares) joining together all their production units and marketing interests for seamless hot rolled tubes and threaded oilfield tubulars (OCTG). In 2005, the Vallourec Group took over the 45% stake previously held by Mannesmannrren-Werke GmbH and thereby increased its 55 percent holding to 100 percent.

During the past decade, VALLOUREC TUBES has increased its worldwide presence to more than 20 countries including USA, Brazil, Russia, China, etc.

VALLOUREC TUBES is a world leader in the production of seamless hot rolled steel tubes for all applications. The company's eight European tube mills (4 in France and 4 in Germany) and production sites in Brazil, USA and China (Vallourec  Changzhou Phase II in 2012) use state-of-the-art production processes. Our plants have a combined capacity of more than 3 million tons. Our tubes and pipes cover the world's largest range of dimensions for seamless steel tubes.

Vallourec has steelworks of its own in Saint-Saulve (France), Duisburg-Huckingen (30% shares in HKM, Germany), Belo Horizonte and Jeceaba (Brazil) and in Youngstown (USA).
