In order to even better fulfil the needs of our customers in the construction industry, in the year 2015, a second plant was founded in Korea with EEW Korea Heavy Pipe Construction (EEW KHPC). With a 4.2 m (13.8 ft.) and a 6 m (19.7 ft.) roll bending machine as well as comprehensive circumferential welding facilities, EEW KHPC is oriented to large-dimensioned structural pipes and pre-assembled pipe components. The direct access to the harbour facilities in Gwangyang City makes smooth product transport possible.
Flexibility is a major factor for success in today’s quickly-changing market conditions and challenges in pricing. That is why the EEW Group does not just deliver single pipe lengths, but also pre-assembled and ready-to-install pipe components. EEW KHPC is able to manufacture components with
- outside diameters of 1,200 mm (47.2”) up to
5.080 mm (200")
- wall thicknesses of up to 125 mm (4.9”)
- a length of up to 80 m (262.5 ft.)
- and a piece weight of up to 300 tonnes.
With the location in Gwangyang City, EEW KHPC is perfectly prepared for the production of structural pipes and pipe components with large dimensions. The direct access to the sea makes smooth loading and transport by ship possible.
With more than 2,100 employees and nine production facilities throughout the entire world, the EEW Group is the world’s leading specialist for the production of submerged-arc welded pipes.
We move in complex markets where one aspect is more important than all of the others: the development of custom solutions for unique projects. For that, you need abilities and know-how. For that, you need experience. But most importantly, you need employees who make every effort to achieve the best results. Motivated people who gladly meet new challenges are always welcome to become a part of the EEW family. Together we develop new dimensions.
