Raccortubi at Houston OTC2016
NRG center booth 3547
From 2nd to 5th May, Raccortubi Group will be making its debut appearance at the OTC in Houston. With an ever-expanding global presence, Raccortubi has decided to take part in the 2016 event with its own stand.
Founded in 1969, the flagship conference represents an annual opportunity for energy professionals to meet and exchange advanced scientific and technical knowledge for offshore resources and environmental matters.
Raccortubi Group will be present at stand 3547 to share its expertise in the fields of international manufacturing, stockholding and distribution of piping materials for critical applications, such as offshore platforms, chemical and petrochemical plants, and oil installations.
Raccortubi Norsk Inaugurates New Warehouse in Aberdeen
Raccortubi Norsk, Raccortubi Group’s most recent acquisition, has moved into new premises on Blackburn Business Park. 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.
Formerly known as Norsk Alloys, Raccortubi Norsk was acquired by Raccortubi Group in 2015 to extend its distribution network to the United Kingdom. With Group support in the form of a global distribution network, supplementary ex-stock material from the 10,000 m² warehouse in Italy, reliable provision of products for frame agreements, and butt weld fittings to short lead times from integrated production facilities, Raccortubi Norsk is fulfilling customer orders for Oil & Gas and offshore platforms quickly and cost-effectively.
In addition, it 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 & Gas industry requirements are available off-the-shelf, and, where requested, Raccortubi Norsk provides further testing as well as additional services such as in-house cutting and machining, reducing time and costs for its clientele.
Raccortubi Group has been investing heavily in its UK presence of late. Starting with the establishment of its branch office Raccortubi UK just outside London in July last year, it then acquired Norsk Alloys, renowned stockholder of piping components in special materials for offshore platforms, in Aberdeen.
STAND 3/D02 - NEW HALL FOR RACCORTUBI AT TUBE 2016
At this year’s Tube exhibition in Düsseldorf, from 4th to 8th April, Raccortubi will be exhibiting in Hall 3, dedicated to Tube Trading and Manufacturing, as opposed to its traditional Hall 1.
Raccortubi is looking forward to presenting the Group to visitors at its stand, particularly in terms of the Group’s most recent consolidations: Raccortubi Norsk, Raccortubi UK and Petrol Raccord. Members of Raccortubi Group are awaiting the opportunity to explain the added value that the new stockholding, supply and manufacturing sites can offer to customers in the form of complete service and piping solutions.
RACCORTUBI GROUP APPROVED MANUFACTURERS IN FIGHT FAKE PRODUCTS INITIATIVE
Raccortubi Group would like to invite manufacturers, distributors, EPC contractors, end users, governmental representatives and media operators to the Fight Fake Products Approved Manufacturers’ Joint Meeting, Open Table & Press Conference at Tube 2016.
The aim of the Fight Fake Products initiative is to increase awareness and combat the harmful, illegal practice of branding uncertified goods with approved manufacturers’ names.
The approved manufacturers have worked hard to achieve high quality in accordance with stringent standards and provide quality guarantees. Not only do the products that they supply have greater longevity, they are also much safer. The widespread practice of buying cheap, low-quality stock and importing, marking and certifying products with an approved manufacturer’s name is dangerous and damaging to all market players, from manufacturers to end users.
As an approved manufacturer, Raccortubi is asking for support at the Fight Fake Products press conference, which will take place on Wednesday 6th April at 13:00 in Room 7, CCD South (connected to Halls 1 & 3) at Tube 2016.

Raccortubi Group Receives Elite UK-Italy Business Award
During the 9TH UK-ITALY BUSINESS AWARDS at Palazzo Mezzanotte (Milan), Raccortubi Group received the ELITE AWARD for excellence and entrepreneurship in its field.
Hosted by Borsa Italiana, Italy’s main stock exchange, Raccortubi Group was awarded the prize thanks to its recent expansion in the United Kingdom, with the establishment of Raccortubi UK near London in July 2015 and the acquisition of Norsk Alloys in Aberdeen (Scotland), now Raccortubi Norsk, in October 2015.
By extending its local presence and distribution network to the United Kingdom, Raccortubi has managed to enhance its efficiency in terms of cutting times and costs for customers in the region. Whilst Raccortubi Norsk concentrates on the stockholding and distribution of pipes, fittings and flanges in stainless steel and special alloys, Raccortubi UK focuses on providing EPC contractors, fabricators and blue chip companies with a dedicated service for the complex order management and project handling of piping materials.
Both Raccortubi Norsk and Raccortubi UK are supported by Group headquarters and integrated production mills in Italy in the composition of package orders. With additional stock material and on-demand manufacturing at their disposal, they can ensure that requests are fulfilled quickly and effectively.
