Houston, Texas - May 12, 2015
VAM USA LLC, the leading supplier of premium threaded connections for the oil and gas industry in the USA, began producing the first pipes for commercial sale at its new premium thread- ing plant in Youngstown, Ohio earlier this month. The recently constructed facility manufactures premium VAM® connections for casing and tubing with outside diameter sizes of 2-3/8 to 7-5/8 inches for oil and gas applications. The new site increases product availability options and offers premium connections from the same location where Vallourec pipe is produced.
“The Youngstown facility offers increased premium capacity in close prox- imity to the local shale plays, enhanced response timing, and the latest in finishing process technol- ogy” said Eric Shuster, President. “Our rigorous commissioning and quali- fication process ensures the highest quality stan- dards. The new thread- ing plant is integrated with VAM USA’s sister company, Vallourec Star’s pipe rolling mills, which enhances efficiencies and brings additional synergies that benefit our customers and further differentiates us from the competition.”
