Shareholders’ club

Do you want to get to know Vallourec better? Do you want to receive transparent, high-quality, exclusive information? Are you ready to invest in our company and create a personal relationship with us?
If so, our Shareholders’ Club may be right for you.

Through this entity and in compliance with its legal framework, we wish to promote sincere, continuous dialogue with our shareholders as well as strengthen the close, trusting relationships that we have built together. 
Events for the Shareholders’ Club are organized regularly at our headquarters in Boulogne-Billancourt. These are unique opportunities to take time to have discussions with our Investor Relations and Financial Communications teams. 
These are also good occasions to share your view of the group, discuss any concerns you may have, and initiate a conversation about your expectations.  

Above all, the Vallourec Shareholders’ Club is intended to be a space for people to speak their minds and engage in constructive dialogue. Join us!

  • We are expanding our range to include digital solutions, particularly with connected or “smart” tubes.

These services, which represent a new and more-inclusive customer experience, aim to support clients along the entire value chain by merging the best of our physical and digital skills.
  • Our local and international industrial presence allows our more than 19,000 employees in over 20 countries to work as closely as possible with our customers. This proximity guarantees our competitiveness: each of our four regions is able to serve its markets via industrial routes that are cost- and time-optimized from production to delivery.
