The new facility

TenarisGPC doubles production capacity in Saudi Arabia

JUBAIL, 15 days ago

TenarisGPC has inaugurated its latest investment in its Longitudinal Submerged Arc-Welding (LSAW) Pipe Mill which will double the company’s production capacity in the country. It will also provide over 100 jobs for the local community in this initial stage of the operation.
The new production line underscores the commitment of the company’s partnership with Saudi Aramco and also the industry, through the provision of extensive training and educational opportunities in the running of the new plant.
The completion of this investment comes after a strategic rebrand earlier this year where Global Pipe Company rebranded to TenarisGPC, marking the next chapter in the company’s growth and innovation as it works towards becoming a pipe export hub for complex projects worldwide.
Partnership with Aramco
Renwar Berzinji, Chairman of TenarisGPC, and Managing Director and CEO of TenarisSSP commented: “This is a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to deliver excellence across all aspects of the production and supply to complex line pipe projects across the kingdom and beyond. The new mill will see us further strengthen our partnership with Saudi Aramco, which has the largest footprint of steel pipes in the country.”
“The rebranding reinforces our commitment to synergising our operations with Tenaris to create unrivalled value for our customers. It adds significant strength to TenarisGPC where - together with TenarisSSP and Tenaris Saudi Arabia in Dammam – Tenaris becomes the sole domestic supplier able to cover the full product range of Saudi Aramco’s steel pipes requirements, and we have an unwavering commitment to position TenarisGPC to become a global leader in the supply of LSAW pipe,” he continued.
Over the course of the next year, the new operation will deliver 15,000 manhours of training and will see the team work closely with top local universities, focusing on hiring Saudi talent for the new opportunities that will be created, and offering practical training and valuable experiences for the next generation of engineers in the country.
TenarisGPC's LSAW facility in Jubail 1 Industrial City complements TenarisSSP’s ERW production specialisation and Tenaris Saudi Arabia’s premium OCTG threading capacities, making Tenaris the only supplier in-kingdom capable to cover the comprehensive needs of Saudi Aramco with the largest footprint in KSA’s steel pipes industry.--TradeArabia News Service
