Company History: Experience in pipes & components

More than 60 years of piping solutions

Over the last decades Ferrostaal Piping Supply has developed into a piping solution provider focussing on oil & gas, petrochemical and energy projects, with 60 years of experience. Today we are a well-established partner for international engineering companies, machine and equipment builders, shipbuilders and leading piping manufactures.

The company heritage goes all back to the year 1953. The company was founded as Stahlhandel Systemrohr Lübeck GmbH by Mr Carl Schaeffer. Originating from Lübeck, Germany, the company became part of the Ferrostaal Group in 1985. The headquarters of the company moved from Lübeck to Essen, Germany, in 1998.

Ferrostaal Piping Supply was able to acquire a growing market share in the home market (Germany) in the 1950s and 60s. In order to expand its activities on the international markets, a subsidiary was founded in 1969 in the Netherlands (Hooge Zwaluwe), between the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. Ferrostaal Piping Supply started the international expansion of its business in 2000 and has today representations in many parts of the world. In 2013 Ferrostaal Piping Supply acquired the piping activities of CCC International in order to extend the product portfolio to non-ferrous (NE) metals.
