Steelpipe has been at the forefront of pipe technology and innovation since it commenced trading as Spiral & Lock-Bar Steel Pipe Company of New Zealand Limited in 1903. Over the years the Company has refined its spiral forming process with the development of butt welded spiral pipe in the 1950s.
We have had production facilities in Whanganui, Gisbourne, Auckland and Perth, and made thousands of kilometres of pipe, forming an essential part of New Zealand’s infrastructure through various guises and ownerships. We have added some historical press clippings from various parts of Steelpipes history to the articles section, under the products tab.
Today Steelpipe operates automatic double submerged arc welding, with world class non-destructive testing equipment, to produce pipes to the highest international standards for domestic and overseas markets.
Steelpipe is part of the McConnell Group, one of New Zealand’s largest privately owned construction, property and infrastructure groups.
