Hatboru opens pipe plant in Romania
Hatboru Romania, a subsidiary of Turkish pipe manufacturer Hatboru, has unveiled its state-of-the-art production facility in Giurgiu, located in southern Romania. This significant investment project, valued at USD 11 million, marks a pivotal development in the region’s manufacturing sector.
The new factory is expected to become a hub of employment, set to provide opportunities for over 100 skilled machine operators and specialists. This investment not only signifies a financial commitment but also underscores the company’s dedication to contributing to the local economy.
At the heart of the cutting-edge plant is the production of helically welded steel pipes, with the impressive capability to manufacture pipes with diameters of up to 2,54 meters. These versatile pipes play a vital role in a wide range of sectors, including the construction of natural gas pipelines, crude oil conduits, petroleum product transportation, water intake infrastructure, sewerage networks, heating systems, road and bridge construction, bank reinforcement projects, and port expansions.
“In the first year of operation, we aim to surpass the volume of pipes imported into the Romanian market over the last 15 years. Our success hinges on securing new projects within the local and regional markets. This ambitious goal underscores Hatboru Romania’s commitment to becoming a key player in the Romanian steel pipe industry”, stated Mehmet Kiliclar, President of Hatboru Romania’s management board.
Hatboru entered the Romanian market in 2008, and since then, the company has made substantial contributions by delivering over 25 000 tons of high-quality pipes produced in Turkiye. These pipes have played a crucial role in supporting the expansion and development of Romania’s natural gas transportation infrastructure, states the company.
