Welspun Tubular LLC (a subsidiary of WCL) was established to enhance our global enterprise’s ability to serve our clients more efficiently in and around the North America market. Situated on a 740-acre site adjacent to the little Rock Port in Arkansas, the facility was inaugurated on April 28, 2009 at a glittering ceremony attended by local, state and federal dignitaries, customers, and company.
The facility employed at its inauguration 350 workers, providing an important economic boost to the region. Today, with the addition of a third shift, the facility boasts more than 400 workers and is one of the new large Arkanas manufactures. The Company recently announced the acquisition of a 44 acre site formerly owned by the Wheatland Tube Company for $4.25 million dollars. The purchase includes a 350,000 sq ft building on the site, which is currently being used to store stock material of Welspun’s pipe and coating facility in Little Rock.
The state of the art $150 million API-certified Little Rock facility is capable of producing 350,000 net tons of HSAW (spiral welded) pipes annually.
With diversified sizes ranging from 24 to 60 inches as outer diameter (OD) and 0.23 to 0.98 inches as wall thickness (WT), as well as coating and double jointing capabilities, our Arkansas facility provides a one-stop solution to valued Oil and Gas customers in and around the United States.
