Stupp's 24-inch, high-frequency welding mill was the first in North America. The firm produces, coats and transports line pipe joints up to 80 feet in length, reducing the number of expensive girth welds that need to be made in the field. Source: Stupp Corp.
North America’s midstream has enjoyed a significant growth spurt in the past decade with the unconventional shale boom—and that means thousands of miles of new pipe added to the nation’s already outstanding transportation infrastructure.
