Fine Tubes, a leading UK manufacturer and global supplier of precision tubes for critical applications, announces that it has been selected as an approved manufacturer of impulse piping and tubing for the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC).

This third-party endorsement will help the Plymouth-based company expand its range of customer approvals in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region.

It has sales offices in the UK, the US, India and Europe, as well as an extensive network of partners in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

We are delighted in how much they value our products and look forward to continuing our relationship with KOC well into the future. This endorsement will further help build our reputation for quality and reliability throughout the region."
