Vallourec, a leading producer of hot-rolled seamless steel tubes, contributes to the success of your industrial projects.
Our tubes come in a full range of steel grades, dimensions and shapes. Our seamless tubes are designed and used in a variety of applications: architectural constructions such as roof spans, bridges, and offshore wind projects; cranes and lifting equipment; agricultural and industrial machinery; and vehicles like cars, trucks, trains, and roller coasters, among others. Vallourec can manufacture products to fit any customer’s requirements.
Whatever your needs are, we make sure to devise a solution that matches the specificities of your application.
Our products are supplied directly by us or via distributors. This allows for the purchase of small quantities and for shorter lead times.
For the automotive industry
Vallourec’s line of automotive portfolio offer automotive manufacturers high-quality, durable and cost-effective solutions, for passenger, commercial and heavy-duty vehicles.
For the railway industry
With a wide range of tubular products, Vallourec remains a trusted partner for construction of onshore and offshore projects. Over the years, our solutions have been integrated into major projects around the world.
Onshore projectsFor many years, Vallourec has been producing quality steel frame structures, and more specifically hot-rolled circular, square and rectangular MSH sections. Our solutions have been successfully integrated into some of the world’s most stunning architectural and structural projects. They have been used to construct iconic stadiums (Wembley Stadium in London, Stade de France in Paris, Allianz Arena in Munich), airports (New Bangkok International Airport, Hong Kong Airport), train stations (Berlin Central Station), and halls (Landesmess in Stuttgart, Hall 3 in Frankfurt).
With products that resist harsh environmental conditions (including saltwater corrosion, fierce storms and very low temperatures), Vallourec provides solutions for the technological challenges inherent in offshore projects such as wind farms, subsea structures, platforms, jack-up rigs and installation vessels.
With the standard range of MSH sections as well as a series of special grades, our solutions meet all specific requirements for offshore applications. Vallourec has additionally developed PREON® marine, an innovative system for offshore wind turbine foundations.
Vallourec’s tubes meet the stringent requirements of the defense industry. The characteristics of our seamless steel tubes make them particularly well adapted to usage as structural components. They have high resistance to tension and bending, significant load capacity, good weldability and many other advantages.
Our products can be used, for example, in Roll Over Protection Systems for light military vehicles and in chassis frame parts and axles for special military vehicles.
Vallourec can work with you to develop customized solutions and supply test material in small quantities.
Vallourec has developed rich expertise in the field of mechanical equipment, partnering with major players to provide tubular components for agricultural machines, construction, mining and lift equipment, as well as for cranes.
Our hot-formed square and rectangular MSH sections produced in a wide range of specific grades make the ideal material for agricultural equipment frames or hollow section-based structures like bridges. Their high load-bearing capacity, excellent weldability and tight corner radii optimize any type of design and component connection.
Vallourec also manufactures key components for all types of crane constructions. From small truck-mounted and tower cranes to heavy-duty crawler cranes, our solutions are tailored to each need. With hot-finished mechanical tubes and structural hollow sections of different diameters, wall thicknesses and grades, our products boast high buckling resistance under tensile and compressive loads. We are proud to offer slim and durable high-strength designs for loads involving cyclic vibratory stresses.
The advantages of Vallourec mechanical tubes for hydraulic cylinders are widely recognized. They are used worldwide by leading manufacturers of hydraulic units for cranes, roof supports, hydraulic shields, and heavy earth-moving and agricultural equipment.
