EEW Group

We are the world market leader in the field of longitudinally welded tubes.

The EEW Group is a globally active family business with its headquarters in Erndtebrück. As an international team, EEW is opening up new dimensions for the energy supply of tomorrow. Around 2,000 employees at six locations in Germany, South Korea, Malaysia and the USA realise pioneering solutions for the renewable energy sector, especially the offshore wind sector, as well as high-quality products for the oil, gas and chemical industries and mechanical engineering.

EEW is a leading specialist in the production of longitudinally welded pipes and has also made a name for itself as a pioneer in the production of monopiles, which serve as foundation piles for offshore wind turbines. With a production capacity of more than 200 monopiles per year, the EEW Group can make a significant contribution to the global expansion of offshore wind energy. In addition to steel tubes for monopiles, tubes for jacket constructions and piles, EEW offers additional services such as coating or the assembly of secondary steel components.

In the early 1970s, EEW was one of the first pipe manufacturers to recognise the increasing demand for pipe components in the offshore oil and gas industry. Since then, the EEW Group has been supplying offshore oil and gas projects worldwide with individual lengths of steel pipe, but also with ready-to-install and customised prefabricated steel pipe components. Whether the project involves the lowest or highest temperatures or exceptionally high pressure: Our EEW Line and Process Pipes are a reliable and high-quality solution for transporting demanding media. The product portfolio includes clad pipes of various material grades. EEW has established itself as one of the leading manufacturers of clad pipes with a full production line. The portfolio also includes LSAW pipes made of nickel alloys and nickel-based alloys for use in plant construction and LNG terminals.
