CONSTRUTEC – U.S. PIPE Alliance: The force required to achieve pioneering solutions.

By May 10, 2018 No Comments

Construtec Duktil, a company specializing in ductile iron pipes for water supply since 1998 in Spain and Latin America, and US Pipe, a technological leader in the production of ductile iron pipes and fittings based in Birmingham (Alabama), have sealed an alliance to develop hydraulic solutions for the European and Spanish-speaking Latin American markets.

The American manufacturer, currently part of the Forterra group, is well known for the contributions it has made to the ductile iron industry. Among others, one of its best known patents at the global level is the “push on” TYTON® joint, used by leading manufacturers of pipes and fittings and still available in the market under such worldwide trademarks as TYTON® or TYTON JOINT®.

An alliance of quality

The CONSTRUTEC – US PIPE alliance is intended to provide the market with premium, high added-value solutions developed by US Pipe involving their locking systems without bolts such as Lok&Play®. The following locking systems are available: TR FLEX®, HDSS®, HP LOK® and TR-XTREME®, this latter a recent innovation awaiting its patent, developed to provide a solution for the disasters that result from pipelines disconnecting during seismic movements.

This is why this alliance will bring new opportunities to the water market in Europe and Latin America, where premium solutions and products are in great demand.
