V&M produces first pipe at Youngstown mill



Published: Tue, November 6, 2012 @ 11:00 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — V&M Star has produced its first pipe at its Youngstown mill and the plant is on schedule to begin sales in 2013.

The new mill will support the long-term development of shale exploitation nationally, which is driving demand for small diameter oil and gas pipe and connections. The mill line of products also includes line pipe, green pipe for drill pipe and coupling stock.

Following the commissioning of the different equipment of the rolling mill, the first continuous production began Oct. 26.

With an initial production capacity of 350,000 tons of seamless pipes per year, products produced in Youngstown will complement the range produced by V&M in North America.

Good news for the valley as long as Romney wins the election. If the Obamanator gets in good buy V and M and anybody else which is producing products for the oil industry and the fracking process.

If those pipes were to carry hot air to windmills, Obama would make a personal donation to the cause.
