Tianjin Pipe Group Corporation (TPCO),located in Tianjin Binhai New Area, is a steel pipe base of Chinaﾒs energy industry. Its construction started in 1989,hot trial succeeded in 1992 and formal production began in 1996.Its principal product are oil casing and other tubular goods such as high and medium-pressure boiler tube, high-pressure cylinder pipe, hydraulic support pipe, line-pipe and others. In the beginning the most advanced equipment and technology of the early 1990ﾒs in steel-making, pipe-rolling, pipe finishing and direct reduction iron were introduced from abroad supported with perfect automatic systems, which made TPCO the best and largest manufacturer of tubular goods in technology and scale in China then. After almost 20 years of unremitting efforts TPCO has achieved remarkable achievement. There are now 3 units of ultra-high-power electric arc furnace in the steel-making system, 6 sets of rolling mills which are of 4 types namely MPM,PQF,ASSEL and REM in the rolling system and 24 production lines in the finishing system. An annual production capacity of 3.5 million tons of pipes can be attained. A number of high level projects like copper rod, stainless steel sheet, color coil ?PPGI?, high-pressure cylinder and so on has been completed and new industries of equipment manufacture, international trade and logistics have been developed, thus forming a pattern of pipe production as the mainstay and several industries as support. As a result of such development TPCO is now among Chinaﾒs top 500 enterprises and top 500 manufacturers.
