1890-1957 Vallourec: founding and early years

1890-1899: Creation of the five founding companies in Valenciennes, Louvoil, Montbard, Recquignies and Aulnoye. 1930: Technical and commercial grouping of the VALenciennes-LOUvroil-RECquignies plants. 1957: The Group is renamed Vallourec.

An integrated & competitive process

To secure complete control over the entire production process from steel making to shipment of the finished product, V & M TUBES owns three steel mills (electric steel mills in France and the United States and an oxygen steel mill in Brazil) in addition to a 20% share in the HKM mill (Germany), which has an annual capacity of 6 million tons.Available production capacity coupled with the competence of expert teams enableV & MTUBES to accommodate production of specially formulated grades, thus creating conditions of continuing performance improvement to the service of the customer. Pursuing its growth strategy and in order to increase its competitiveness,Vallourec is teaming up with Sumitomo Metal Industries to build a new state-of-the-art integrated pipe mill in Brazil. Production at this pipe mill, which integrates a steel mill and a rolling mill, will have an annual production capacity of 600,000 tons. Our ability to innovate for our customers arises from an active and comprehensive Research and Development policy. Responsibility for putting this policy into effect lies with our plant-based Research & Development Plain End staff, who are close to the real needs of the market and in daily contact with production processes.
