TenarisGPC has opened a Longitudinal Submerged Arc-Welding (LSAW) pipe mill in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, which will double the company’s production capacity in the country

The investment will provide more than 100 jobs for local community in the initial stage of the operation.

Strategic rebrand

The completion of this investment comes after a strategic rebrand earlier this year where Global Pipe Company rebranded to TenarisGPC, in furtherance of its ambitions to become a pipe export hub for complex projects worldwide. The new facility complements TenarisSSP's ERW production specialisation and Tenaris Saudi Arabia's premium OCTG threading capabilities.

Renwar Berzinji, chairman of TenarisGPC, and managing director and CEO of TenarisSSP commented, “This is a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to deliver excellence across all aspects of the production and supply to complex line pipe projects across the Kingdom and beyond.

“The rebranding reinforces our commitment to synergising our operations with Tenaris to create unrivalled value for our customers. We have an unwavering commitment to position TenarisGPC to become a global leader in the supply of LSAW pipe.”

In the upcoming year, the new operation will deliver 15,000 manhours of training and will involve collaboration with top local universities, focusing on hiring Saudi talent, and offering practical training and experience for the next generation of engineers in the country.
