Pipe firms set up Middle East JV

German pipe manufacturer Buderus and UK pipe-fittings firm Ham Baker have set up a joint venture to serve the Middle East region.

German pipe manufacturer Buderus and UK pipe-fittings firm Ham Baker have set up a joint venture to serve the Middle East region.

The joint venture firm, Buderus Pipe Systems, will offer products from both firms to enable a one-stop-shop solution to clients. Edward Howard, group managing director of Ham Baker explained: "Buderus could sell pipes but had no access to fittings and Ham Baker manufactures fittings but not pipes. The two firms have worked together in Europe and they knew we had a presence [in Dubai] so we carried out discussions, which have resulted in this joint venture."

The firm will be based at South Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZ) and will serve the whole of the Middle East region. Products will continue to be manufactured in Europe and Asia before being collated and packaged in Dubai ready for distribution.
