Tenaris to reactivate heat treatment line at Koppel

Tenaris is gearing up to reactivate its heat treatment and finishing lines at its Koppel, Pennsylvania, plant to streamline the flow of seamless products at its facilities in the northeast.
The heat treatment line is part of the manufacturing process which gives pipe their required metallurgical properties for enhanced performance in oil and gas wells. The line is located at Tenaris’s melt shop in Koppel, which started producing steel in June 2021 following a year-long investment of more than USD 15M.
Tenaris will be carrying out an investment of about USD 3.5M, performing updates in IT and automation systems, non-destructive testing equipment and in maintenance activities to ensure equipment on the line is in a ready state for an April 2022 start. Tenaris is looking to bring about 75 employees onboard to run the heat treatment and finishing lines.
By the end of 2022, Tenaris expects to hire an additional 700 employees as part of its US ramp-up.
