How we add valueVallourec adds value with services in the fields of engineering, supply chain, asset construction, and life of field. Drawing on our strengths, our initial focus is on supply chain and productivity solutions.
Leveraging synergiesOffering holistic solutions that maximize overall efficiency means connecting the dots along the customer’s value chain. As a global supplier of both products and services, we can use supply chain solutions to benefit asset construction and ensure that any challenges arising during asset construction can, wherever possible, be dealt with from a supply chain angle. By taking advantage of synergies between our different service solutions in this way, customers can enjoy improved safety and integrity, lower operating costs, and better asset productivity for greater profitability.
Developing partnershipsThe move from supplying products to becoming a product and service solutions provider can be equated with Vallourec shifting from a tubular-centric to a customer-centric vision of our business. This shift is offering us new perspectives on customer challenges.
Opening up possibilitiesIn the past, such companies have been our competitors. Now, as we change our focus, they have become potential collaborators with whom we can become more than the sum of our parts.
