Raccortubi Norsk, Raccortubi Group’s most recent acquisition, has moved into new premises on Blackburn Business Park in Aberdeen, Scotland.
The stockholder and distributor of piping materials in stainless-steel and special alloys now benefits from a warehouse consisting of a larger square footage to hold a stock of pipes, tubes, fittings and flanges.
Formally known as Norsk Alloys, Raccortubi Norsk was acquired by Raccortubi Group in 2015 to extend its distribution network to the UK. Raccortubi Norsk is receiving Group support in the form of a global distribution network, supplementary ex-stock material from the 10,000m² warehouse in Italy, reliable provision of products for frame agreements, and butt weld fittings to short lead times from integrated production facilities.
In addition, Raccortubi Norsk is placing a great deal of emphasis on the quality and personalisation of the final product. Fully tested and certified items in accordance with oil and gas industry requirements are available off-the-shelf, and, where requested, Raccortubi Norsk provides further testing for its clients, as well as additional services such as in-house cutting and machining.
Raccortubi Group has been investing considerably in its UK presence of late. Starting with the establishment of its branch office, Raccortubi UK, just outside London last July, it then acquired Norsk Alloys, renowned stockholder of piping components in special materials for offshore platforms, in October in Aberdeen.
