THE TECHINT GROUP IN BRIEF
Peru, Poland, as well as other
countries (see detailed references
in the Techint Group Companies
section of this publication). In
over 70 years of activity, Techint
Engineering & Construction has
successfully completed more than
3,500 projects in more than 45
countries, and continues to work on
major industrial and infrastructure
projects around the world.
At the same time, Techint Group’s
steel pipes business also continued
to grow. In the mid-1980s it undertook a major, export-oriented expansion of the
Campana mill and acquired Argentine welded pipe-manufacturer Siat. In the 1990s
it also acquired control of the Veracruz mill in Mexico and the Dalmine seamless pipe
mill in Italy. Over time, steel pipe manufacturing facilities were also acquired in Brazil,
Venezuela, Japan, Canada and Romania.
Tenaris, the company under which all the manufacturing and service activities in
the steel pipe business are grouped today, went public at the end of 2002. Its shares
are listed on four stock exchanges: Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Milan, and on the
New York Stock Exchange.
Tenaris became a leading North American producer of welded OCTG, line pipe and
coiled tubing with the acquisition of Maverick Tube Corp. in 2006, and in 2007, it
integrated premium connections into its USA portfolio by acquiring Hydril. Tenaris also
expanded its presence in other regions by acquiring a presence in Colombia through
TuboCaribe; gaining control of Seamless Pipe Indonesia Java (SPIJ), an OCTG processing
business, and completing its premium threading facilities in Saudi Arabia and in China.
Over the last decade, Tenaris undertook two major investments in North America: a
rolling mill in Veracruz, which began operations in 2010, and a greenfield seamless
pipe mill in Bay City, Texas, which started operations late 2017. The new facility has an
annual production capacity of 600,000 tons. TuboCaribe in Colombia also underwent
major expansion and a new plant began operations in 2015 with an output of 250,000
tons of welded and seamless pipes.
Tenaris also increased the production of sucker rods, with an expansion of the mill
in Veracruz, Mexico and the construction of a new mill in Conroe, USA.
Today, Tenaris is a leading supplier of tubes and related services for the world’s energy
industry and certain other industrial applications. It has an integrated worldwide
network of steel pipe manufacturing, finishing, service and research facilities with
industrial operations in North and South America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East
and Africa, and a direct presence in most major oil and gas markets.
