Epoxy pipe company expands in UAE

17 Jun 2010

Future Pipe Industries has announced that it is to start production in Abu Dhabi of the group’s marine GRE epoxy pipe systems, after receiving international type approvals.

Future Pipe Industries Group (FPI), has certified its manufacturing facility in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates to produce the group’s marine glassfibre reinforced epoxy (GRE) pipe systems.

This news comes after inspectors from Lloyd’s Register, Bureau Veritas, Det Norske Veritas, Germanischer Lloyd and ABS surveyed the plant and issued type approvals.

Marc Groenewoud, unit manager shipbuilding of FPI said: “The marine industry is an increasingly important market segment for us and we continue to see strong demand for our fibreglass reinforced epoxy pipe systems for marine applications”.  

Groenewoud added: “Prior to receiving these important international type approvals for our plant in Abu Dhabi, the production of our marine pipe systems was exclusive to our factory in The Netherlands. Having a second plant producing this application for the marine market will without a doubt help us to further position fibreglass as the material of choice and will give us the opportunity to further improve our services to our customers’ ships calling on ports in these markets.”
