The history of Vallourec, whose origins date back to the 19th century, is that of the progressive merger of many regional, national and then international companies in the metallurgy sector, leading to the creation of today's Group, the world leader for premium tubular solutions primarily serving the energy industry.

The foundations of the Group's current economic model - a strategy based on expertise, innovation, high added value, as well as global scope combined with a local presence in close proximity to its customers - have been apparent throughout its development.
