CORINTH PIPEWORKS SA
started operating in 1969 and became a robust Group of companies, which manufactures medium- and large-diameter steel pipes used to transmit oil, natural gas and water, as well as hollow structural sections for the construction sector.
The main CORINTH PIPEWORKS production plant operates in the Industrial Area of Thisvi, Viotia and is considered as one of the top, state-of-the-art steel pipe manufacturing plants in the world.
The plant’s construction was completed in 2002 and the facilities include two pipe production units, two exterior coating units and one internal lining unit.
In early 2013, CORINTH PIPEWORKS S.A. signed a memorandum of understanding with the German Manufacturer of equipment SMS Meer, for the supply of a new pipe mill that will have the capability of producing natural gas and oil transmission pipes with external diameters ranging from 18" to 56", wall thicknesses of up to 40 mm, pipe lengths up to 18.3m, and Steel Grades up to X100, using the LSAW/JCOE production technique.
By making this investment, CORINTH PIPEWORKS aims at expanding its product range in order to capture the fast growing global demand for high strength pipes that are used in the manufacture of offshore and onshore natural gas and oil transmission pipes. These new products will meet very strict quality criteria and their inclusion in the existing range will offer a unique product portfolio, thus contributing to excellent customer service. Moreover, these new pipes target, among others, markets on Mediterranean Region, Gulf of Mexico, Latin America, West Africa and North Sea.
Within the Industrial Area of Thisvi, where the plant is located, a port equipped with dock and port cranes, fork-lifts and other cargo loading/unloading machinery operates. The use of the port guarantees CORINTH PIPEWORKS reduced delivery times for raw materials and delivery of final products and also lower transportation costs.
