Voestalpine Tubulars says it will take over section tubes production facilities from Vallourec Germany, to be able to cover an enlarged portfolio.
In the future, the product range of welded hollow sections at voestalpine Krems, Austria, will be supplemented by seamless hollow sections from voestalpine Tubulars at the site in Kindberg, also Austria. To that purpose, voestalpine Tubulars has purchased the related equipment, including all rights, from Vallourec Germany, Kallanish learns from the Austrian company.
Voestalpine Tubulars is active in the production of seamless round tubes and, in future, will thus be able to produce square and rectangular hollow sections up to large formats and wall thicknesses seamlessly hot-rolled. The firm adds it will give further information at a later stage.
