UK-headquartered Special Piping Materials (SPM) has announced that from 1st January 2014 it is re-branding to commemorate 25 years of success as a specialist supplier of alloy pipe, fittings and flanges to the Oil & Gas and water treatment industries
The family-owned company is modernising its logo to mark the occasion and ensure that the brand remains at the forefront of this fast-paced sector.
In the last 25 years Special Piping Materials has established itself as a market leader, growing from a single office in Manchester, UK to a global network of seven sales offices and warehouses across five continents.
During that time the business has become recognised as a major supplier of a wide variety of duplex and super duplex stainless steel products and from the start of 2014 it will be extending its range to include NORSOK M-650 approved forged pressure fittings in the same grades.
Les Buckley, managing director of Special Piping Materials, said: “For the past 25 years we have invested heavily in our people, products and processes which has resulted in the company becoming known for always delivering on price, quality and market expertise.
“To ensure our success continues in the future we need to ensure that the company evolves alongside the sector which is why we have taken this step to remodel the brand and broaden our product range.
“It firmly positions Special Piping Materials as front-runner in the field and our clients should be assured that we will always offer a global service. Our reach around the globe will grow further in 2014, with the opening of a warehouse in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil during the first quarter of 2014, therefore providing an entry into South America”
Special Piping Materials was founded in 1989 by Les Buckley who has guided the company through many challenges and positioned it as the specialist distributor it is today.
