"IF YOU CAN’T EXPLAIN SOMETHING SIMPLY, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND IT WELL ENOUGH."

Petrol Raccord is a leading manufacturer of specialised butt weld fittings for the Oil & Gas, power generation, fertiliser and petrochemical industries. Founded in 1969, it was acquired by Raccortubi at the end of 2014 in a move to extend and complete the Group’s manufacturing range. Since the acquisition, considerable investments have been made at the plant to enhance efficiency, particularly in terms of raw material stock, advanced machinery and welding capabilities. There are now 150 tonnes of sheets/plates in duplex, superduplex, 6Mo and titanium onsite, meaning that fittings from thin to heavy-wall thicknesses can be produced quickly and cost-effectively.
