Construction is another industry in which Tuboacero has traditionally participated by supporting the development of infrastructure in Venezuela, and in other Andean, Central American and Caribbean countries.
Tuboacero has a huge stock of large diameter carbon steel pipes, typically used for large-scale works, ranging from 20 to 42 inches. All our pipes, with various thicknesses, qualities and grades, are duly certified. In addition, they are manufactured and stored according to the highest quality standards based on the guidelines of our ISO 9001 quality management system.
ASTM A500 and A252 are the specifications commonly used in structural piping; however, our stock meets higher specifications, thus guaranteeing competitiveness. Operating IMOSA plant for more than 15 years has allowed us to increase our ASTM A53, API and AWWA, and commercial quality pipe inventories up to around 20,000 metric tons.
We have historically participated in large projects by supplying materials for the construction of tanks, ships, stabilization works and retaining walls, foundations and piling, stabilization works and piers with sheet pile systems, shopping centers, and institutional works.
Some of the projects we have participated in are as follows:
- Sambil Shopping Center, several states in Venezuela
- Enlargement of Jose Complex Piers, Puerto Píritu
- Cachamay Stadium, Puerto Ordaz
- José Antonio Anzoátegui Stadium, Puerto La Cruz.
