Tenaris US President to chair new US OCTG Manufacturers Association

Efforts to level the OCTG playing field in the United States and to raise the profile of the domestic industry has led to the creation of the U.S. OCTG Manufacturers Association (USOMA).

At the helm of the association is Tenaris US President Luca Zanotti, who has been elected to serve as the new trade group’s chairman by its member companies:  Vallourec Star LP, Borusan Pipe US, PTC Liberty Tubulars, Welded Tube US and Axis Pipe and Tube.

“As American energy production is a matter of national security, we must promote and develop reliable, domestic supply chains, such as a world-class U.S. OCTG industry,” stated Zanotti in a news release introducing USOMA. “Foreign producers, many from countries that do not have a local OCTG market, and consequently, have non-market excess capacity, account for roughly half of the U.S. market. The U.S. industry can replace these imports and create thousands of high-paying jobs in American OCTG plants and in the American steel plants that supply their hot rolled coils, while reducing the carbon footprint.”

Combined, association member companies have 19 facilities across nine states and employ approximately 7,500 American workers, representing about 75% of OCTG production in the States. 

The new trade group will work with the US Administration for a strong, secure domestic energy industry that promotes a healthy OCTG industry supported by effective, fair trade.
