Vallourec Niko Tube, a joint venture of Vallourec and Interpipe, was created in April 2018 to produce seamless pipes for the European market.
The manufacture is situated in the city of Nikopol and consists of two lines in the pipe-rolling shops Nos. 2 and 7 of Interpipe Niko Tube.
Interpipe is responsible for the manufacture and delivery, while Vallourec controls quality and handles negotiations and sales.
The first pipes were produced in November 2018.
Now the JV has reached its design capacity. (Ukrainian metal)
