Victaulic pipe joining company ditches OneSteel and goes out alone

Grooved and plain-end mechanical pipe joining systems provider, Victaulic, is investing in its Australian operations by consolidating ownership of its local brand, formerly owned by OneSteel, and building a new distribution network throughout the country.

The new distribution network will allow Victaulic customers in various industries to have a dedicated service centre, said Victaulic Australia Pty Ltd regional manager, Gennaro Sposato.

“We are also increasing our warehousing facility to significantly decrease waiting time for deliveries. Our clients need parts and service quickly in this highly competitive market.”

Victaulic will be appointing new distributors that specialise in key vertical markets such as fire protection, heating/ventilation/air conditioning (HVAC) and the mining sectors, strengthening Victaulic’s position providing tailored solutions to its Australian customers.

“This is good news for Victaulic customers in Australia who will now have the benefit of a shorter supply chain and dedicated support from a nationally focused company,” said Sposato.

Victaulic has been developing mechanical pipe joining systems for 80 years. Its piping systems are used in a wide selection of industries, including HVAC, mining, fire protection, water and wastewater treatment, oil field operations, power plants and every day plumbing.

Throughout its history the company has developed an extensive portfolio of products, including the Snapjoint — designed to eliminate the need for nuts and bolts; and the Style 99 Roust-A-Bout plain-end coupling — designed to end the need to groove or prepare pipe ends. Both of these solutions are targeted at the mining sector.

“Our long history of research and development is shaped around our customers’ needs, which has led to the design of products that have proven crucial across a number of industries,” said Sposato.

“Increasing our local presence enables us to offer a fully comprehensive service and truly meet the needs of our Australian customers in applications where it really matters.”
