What we do

In the context of pipeline, plant and power plant construction, the BUHLMANN Group is a full-service provider, a consulting company and a reliable partner for its clients. We provide you with comprehensive project management from planning and goods logistics to the coordination of technical support for all partners involved on the client’s and the manufacturer’s side.

The BUHLMANN Group is a full-service provider of high-quality boiler tubes from all materials used in power plant construction which have to withstand high pressure and temperatures. In chemical and plant engineering, resistance against corrosion by aggressive chemicals, higher temperatures or very high pressure is essential. In the oil and gas pipe range, BUHLMANN stocks essential welded and seamless steel pipes as well as the suitable fittings and flanges. These also have a high resistance against corrosion and can withstand high pressure.

The BUHLMANN Group has also observed the growing offshore market for some time and has adapted to the increasing demand from the industry. Since 2018, the industrial technology sector has also become a new customer with the subsidiary company BUHLMANN Industrie Technik. This focuses on C or stainless steel as well as boiler tubes for compressed air technology, food industry technology or refrigeration and air-conditioning technology.

Thanks to its worldwide presence in different markets, not only fast and direct contact to the client can be provided, but also personal consultation and tailor-made provision of innovative solutions. We can therefore achieve the result desired by our clients with an understanding for individual expectations.
