On the 6th of April at the Tube trade fair in Düsseldorf Vallourec officially opened the new e-business portal iTube® with an integrated online shop, the company's timely contribution towards digitalization in its industry at the start of the international trade fair. Andreas Denker, Managing Director of the Industry Division of the Vallourec group, sold the first 1,000 tons of seamless steel tubes to steel trader Klöckner & Co at the opening of the iTube® Portal. A new chapter of the history of the company was written on the occasion of the opening of the new iTube® Portal in the presence of the mayor of Düsseldorf, Thomas Geisel, the Vallourec management and numerous visitors to the trade show. Thanks to these new services, Vallourec can make better use of its existing warehousing and logistics structure and make the processes even more efficient for customers and dealers.
“An increasing number of our customers plan on a short-term basis and have highly individual requirements for their seamless steel tubes. They want to buy quickly and conveniently. It is precisely these requirtements that we are meeting with the iTube® portal“, says Andreas Denker, Managing Director of the Vallourec Industry Division.
Delighted at the excellent cooperation: Andreas Denker, Managing Director of the Industry Division of the Vallourec group and Sven Koepchen, chairman of the board of Klöckner & Co Deutschland GmbH, after the sale of the first 1,000 tons of seamless steel tubes via the iTube® Portal
