ABOUT RACCORTUBI GROUP
Since 1949, Raccortubi Group has been manufacturing, stocking and supplying piping materials for critical applications, such as chemical and petrochemical plants, power plants, shipyards, fertilizer plants and offshore platforms through its global distribution network. It provides pipes, tubes, butt weld fittings and flanges in austenitic stainless steel, duplex, super duplex, 6Mo, nickel alloys and titanium from stocks at distribution points in Italy, Brazil, Dubai, Singapore and the United Kingdom, being constantly replenished by the internal manufacturing of butt weld fittings at the two Italian production mills Tecninox and Petrol Raccord.
Raccortubi S.p.A., based just outside Milan, represents the Group headquarters, ensuring that its global distribution network is working to the height of efficiency. It has a large warehouse (more than 6000 items) for the direct distribution of piping materials in stainless steel and special alloys, and, together with its integrated production mills and strategic supplier partnerships, Raccortubi handles complete projects worldwide.
Petrol Raccord is a leading manufacturer of specialised butt weld fittings for the Oil & Gas, power generation, fertiliser and petrochemical industries. Founded in 1969, it was acquired by Raccortubi at the end of 2014 in a move to extend and complete the Group’s manufacturing range. In addition to producing hot-formed seamless and welded fittings up to 56”, almost without wall thickness limitations, in stainless steel, duplex, superduplex, 6Mo, nickel alloys and titanium, it also supplies alloy steel butt weld fittings for power plants (P5, P9, P11, P22, P91 and P92).
Tecninox is Raccortubi’s integrated manufacturing plant for the production of cold-formed butt weld fittings. Established in 1988, it takes base material from Raccortubi stock to insert it directly into production, providing the Group with a guaranteed supply of fittings from 1/2” to 16”.
