COVER STORY: Stellar Tube & Pipe Group stands out with industry chain advantage
Being a subsidiary company of the Tsingshan Group, one of the largest stainless steel long products manufacturer in the world, the Stellar Tube & Pipe Group has been focusing on producing and selling industrial stainless steel pipes since its founding in 2006. With ongoing development on its productivity and competitiveness in the past years, “Stellar” brand stainless steel seamless pipes have taken a remarkable share in both domestic and international markets. In recent years the stainless steel pipe market has showed a general depression. Manufacturers have been confronted with a series of challenges including fluctuation of nickel price, anti-dumping measures in some of the important markets, and also the economy downturn. How is Stellar Tube & Pipe Group doing in such an environement and what is their strategy to maintain competitiveness? Stainless Steel World visited Stellar’s headquarters in Longwan District, Wenzhou City, and spoke to Mr. Wan Chengbei, General Sales Manager of the Stellar Tube & Pipe Group.
