The founding of EEW Korea Co. Ltd. in Sacheon on the south coast of Korea in 2001 was a significant step in order to serve the markets in the Far and Middle East as well as the American market. A 13.2 m bending press (43.3 ft.) and as 12 m roll bending machine (39.4 ft.) guarantee the efficient production of SAW pipes for various application purposes in the offshore industry, in oil and gas processing facilities and in the building industry. The annual production output of 125,000 tonnes in our Korean works was significantly expanded in 2015, because a second plant - EEW Korea Heavy Pipe Construction (EEW KHPC) - began operation.
As a special service for our customers in the steel construction industry, EEW offers the Point-to-Point-to-Point Construction Service. In accordance with this service, complete pipe components are pre-fabricated according to individual customer wishes.
After the commissioning of a second plant in Korea that is specialised in the manufacturing of large pipes with diameters of up to 5,080 mm (200”), EEW Korea can more closely concentrate on the production of pipes with diameters of up to 1,524 mm (60”) than ever before. The adjustment to the manufacturing programme, combined with the most modern and completely automatic facilities, guarantees the highest levels of product quality and process efficiency.
With its extensive product portfolio, EEW Korea can offer SAW pipes for extremely diverse application purposes. No matter whether it is line pipes, process pipes or construction pipes, EEW Korea is in a position to perfectly fulfil the requirements of its customers.
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.
