In September 2021, at the Dnieper site of the Interpipe Niko Tube plant, an investment project was completed to create its own production of cold-rolled small diameter pipes 21-32 mm.
“Investment in the new mill amounted to $ 1 million. With the help of this equipment, the company will be able to gain a foothold in a new segment and ensure the production of almost the entire line of pipes demanded by our customers at its own facilities, ”commented Denis Morozov, Deputy General Director of Interpipe.
The new equipment will make it possible to produce up to 100 tons of small diameter cold-rolled pipes per month. Pilot tests have already been successfully passed, the plant has started production of the first order.
Small-diameter cold-rolled pipes are one of the most promising areas for the development of sales of pipes for mechanical engineering. There is a demand for such products, but the supply is very limited. In recent years, Interpipe has been fulfilling these orders in cooperation, and now it will fulfill these orders on its own.
Interpipe supplies the bulk of pipes for mechanical engineering to Europe, the Middle East and the CIS.
