08/10/2020 - PartnershipsVallourec provides threading services at Baker Hughes’ - a leading energy technology company - facilities in Singapore. Previously, the threading of our VAM® connections was performed by the customer under license. It is now carried out by Vallourec’s teams in a brand-new threading cell at their premises.
A brand-new installationThis installation allows for complete flexibility along with the expertise and high-quality standards offered by our team. It also represents a major improvement in terms of transportation and logistics. We are now able to satisfy accessory requests within a few days reducing lead times by approximately 50%. Furthermore, less handling of heavy parts will reduce safety risks and potential damage to the customer’s goods.
We have a long-standing partnership with this client and a trusted relationship based on successful designs. Two threading cells have already been set up in the US by Vallourec Tube Alloy at Baker Hughes' facility to their complete satisfaction.Anthony Lasjournades Business Unit Manager
