Tenaris to build its first US seamless pipe mill in Bay City, TX

Tenaris

Tenaris will build its first US seamless pipe mill in Bay City, Matagorda County, Texas. With an estimated investment of $1.5 billion (USD), the new facility will have an annual production capacity of 600,000 tons of high quality seamless pipe.
 
With its proximity to Houston, the world’s energy capital and to Tenaris’s North American headquarters, the location offers a combination of favorable geography, operational logistics and availability of a skilled workforce. “Our new facility will complement our integrated global manufacturing network and work closely with our existing North American operations to further strengthen domestic production,” Paolo Rocca, Chairman and CEO said.
 
“This announcement is only possible thanks to the hard work of state and local officials, as well as, the area business community, which always plays a major role in decisions like this,” Texas Governor Rick Perry said.

“The most profound statement about our favorable economic climate comes when companies like Tenaris make an investment of this size in our state.That says that not only is Texas the best place to grow your business now, but they’re confident that we’ll remain that way moving forward.”

“With this investment, we will strengthen our local production and service capabilities to address the growing demands of the energy industry,” Germán Curá, President, North America said. “We are grateful for the support we have had from The State of Texas, Matagorda County and Bay City.”
 
An analysis conducted on the economic impact of Tenaris in Matagorda County states the company will have a large direct and indirect influence on the area.  The new plant will generate 600 direct manufacturing jobs and offer substantial economic impact in Matagorda County as well as in the surrounding areas.
 
“The company’s commitment to the environment and safety is a top priority,” Curá said. “The facility is being designed according to the most stringent environmental and safety standards, with the implementation of control technologies that will reduce our emissions footprint and exceed state and federal regulations.” The new facility is expected to begin operations in 2016.
