09 Apr RACCORTUBI & BUTTING STRENGTHENING THEIR PARTNERSHIP IN SOUTHEAST ASIA
Raccortubi announces its partnership with Butting for the distribution of longitudinally welded Butting pipes in Southeast Asia.
In particular, Raccortubi Singapore has been appointed as sole distributor of Butting pipes in the area. Hence, Raccortubi stock in Singapore will initially feature duplex pipes – 10S and 40S wall thickness, sizing from 219.1 to 508, to be exclusively available to customers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). In addition, it will also stock fittings – i.e. elbows, tees, reducers, in the same grades and dimensions, manufactured at the Group’s production plants Tecninox and Petrol Raccord.
By expanding its stock availability to include welded pipes from Butting, Raccortubi will thus be able to broaden its offer in the Southeast Asian market for the supply of complete packages of fittings, flanges and pipes, both in seamless and welded execution.
Customers of the area will thus be able to obtain high-quality pipes, produced and accepted in accordance with ASTM A928 class 1, with short delivery times, in line with the two companies’ common goal of improving efficiency in fulfilling short-term requirements for welded pipes in the region through a reinforced local presence.
Luca Pentericci, President of Raccortubi, states: “Our presence in various markets supported by our own internal production is further enhanced by this partnership in a challenging and demanding market such as Singapore and the other ASEAN countries. We are proud to be associated with BUTTING, one of the most renowned welded pipe manufacturers in the world and a long-standing supplier of Raccortubi for many years.”
Norbert Heinzle, Managing Director of Butting, explains: “True to our self-conception, we are designing a powerful network with cooperation partners worldwide. Here our goal is always to be present locally with our products for our customers in the global markets.”
The supply of piping material from such a globally renowned partner coupled with the deep knowledge of the local market of our team at Raccortubi Singapore is the perfect synergy to meet the needs of the Southeast Asian customers with efficient, tailored solutions.
