Tenaris is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its welded pipe mill in Hickman, Arkansas, and the restart of its Blytheville facility.
2023 marks an industrial milestone at the Hickman plant – three decades of operations. Since producing its first pipe in March 1993, the mill has been serving the energy industry with high quality welded pipe products.
The mill has been a key part of the company’s US industrial framework.
Tenaris has invested approximately USD 275M in the Hickman mill since 2006 in a wide range of projects to improve safety, quality, and process efficiency.
The latest part of the company’s ramp up is the restart of its Hickman North Campus, the Blytheville facility that formed part of the Ipsco Tubulars acquisition. The North Campus will support the company’s US operations by bringing additional heat treatment capacity online.
In addition, Tenaris has continued to strengthen its partnership with the community in Mississippi County where Tenaris has invested about USD 4.6M in education-based programs since 2010 with the launch of its Academic Excellence Afterschool Program, and strategic donations.
