We recently announced our DOM product line has officially been changed back to Sharon Tube, headed by President Bill Perrine. Perrine, a 32-year veteran of the steel pipe and tube industry, who most recently served as the CEO of Sharon Tube prior to his retirement in 2007.
The reinstatement of the Sharon Tube brand could not have come at a better time. Sharon Tube has always been the recognized quality and service leader in the precision tubing industry and as the highest-quality producer of DOM tubing—with numerous customer awards acknowledging this recognition.
Sharon Tube manufactures cold-drawn mechanical tubing for customers who need the precision of tight tolerance mechanical tubing. Sharon Tube specializes in A513 Type 5 and Type 6 Drawn Over Mandrel (DOM) tubing and A513 Type 1 ERW (as welded) tubing. Both products are produced using the strictest manufacturing processes that conform to industry standards. Applications for DOM include hydraulic cylinders, machine parts, and applications which require a superior surface finish, precise dimensions and specific physical properties.
In preparation for the official launch, the facility in Wheatland, PA has made a significant investment to become the world's most modern DOM manufacturing facility. This facility includes a completely automated pickle and lube line, a new draw bench, an annealing furnace and a finishing line complete with advanced nondestructive testing equipment. These upgrades will support the expansion of the size range capability—up to 9.000" OD.
The expansion of our size range will enable us to meet the needs of our customers with Sharon Tube's trademark customer service and quality reputation. We understand that our customers need the highest-quality, globally competitive DOM product, and our new world-class equipment will meet this need.
Our top-of-the-line equipment will allow for faster order fulfillment as well as the production of the highest-quality precision tubing, made to exact customer tolerances.
In addition to the brand, we are very pleased to welcome Bill back to the company as president of our DOM product line. Bill’s extensive experience will make him an enormous asset for the division, and I look forward to working with him to continue to make our Sharon Tube DOM product line the best in the industry.
Now that we've built the world's most modern precision tube manufacturing facility, increased our size range and doubled our capacity, we can deliver even greater value to our customers.
