Devon-based precision tube manufacturer, Fine Tubes, has joined forces with the US company Superior Tube, in a bit to increase its global capabilities.
June 3, 2013. The new partnership will enable the two Watermill Group owned companies to improve service possibilities and production levels both in the UK and US.
Fine Tubes says they can now deliver new products, move in to new markets and meet global demand for high specification metal tubing.
“Being able to realise the synergy between Fine Tubes and Superior Tube will bring exciting added value and supply chain security to our customers,” said Brian Mercer, global sales and marketing director, Fine Tubes. “The opportunities for this arise not only through the sharing of best practices together but also through the increased combined product offering the two companies will have and the ability to provide secure back-up to our customers where single source supply is not untypical.”
He added: “Our customers will also benefit from the increased global service reach two organisations will have through working together – Fine Tubes presently supplies it products to over 35 countries; when this is combined with strong presence Superior Tube Company has in the US this will create a more effective global coverage.”
