One brand, two production sites

BUTTING is expanding its production capacity to two locations in Germany. Butting’s core business is producing high-quality, longitudinally welded stainless steel pipes. Few companies in Europe can boast such extensive experience and diversity in the production of pipes. BUTTING has supplied a wide range of industries for decades, including the food, pharmaceutical and biochemistry industries.

The employees are qualified and certified for all current welding procedures. BUTTING can always guarantee its customers longitudinally seam-welded stainless steel pipes that meet the requirements. At its main plant in Knesebeck (Lower Saxony), the company processes more than 60,000 tonnes of stainless steel into longitudinally welded pipes and pipeline parts annually. In Könnern, stainless steel is processed into pipes in five production halls with a production area of almost 18,000 m2.

“BUTTING Könnern has made decisive progress since the takeover to meet the customer requirements for our well-known quality,” explains Henning Lütkemüller, Managing Director of BUTTING Könnern. “Our focus is on producing stainless steel pipes: strip pipes up to DN 600 and sheet metal pipes up to DN 1200 with small

to medium wall thicknesses.” An in-house sheet metal warehouse enables the short-term production of standard pipes according to BUTTING’s quality standards.

Norbert Heinzle, Managing Director of BUTTING in Knesebeck, believes in the strategy. “With BUTTING experts, we have another competitive location with lean structures,” he says. “This is for large-scale projects and short-term repairs and route transactions, especially for common

dimensions and materials. Our production capacities

enable reliable availability for strip and sheet metal pipes, allowing us to offer our customers short and reliable delivery times for fast-track requirements and add to the broad range of products and services BUTTING offers.”
