E&M Supply Group carries a large inventory of new drill pipe, only purchased from the top A.P.I. certified manufacturers, so you’ll know you’re buying the best quality. We offer competitive pricing, so be sure to contact us.
There are several A.P.I. drill pipe manufacturers in the U.S. Two of these companies, Grant Prideco and Vam Omsco, are very large publicly held corporations. The main business model of these two manufacturers is to supply other large, publicly held drilling contractors and rental companies. In addition to the “big two” there are also several independent manufacturers throughout the USA. The independent manufacturers usually have more favorable pricing and delivery than their larger counterparts. E&M Supply Group proudly represents all USA drill pipe manufacturers and their products. We make every effort to keep our new inventory filled with those items our customers need. This eliminates long delivery times and long-term financial commitments for our customers.
In addition, the oil industry boom of the mid-2000’s gave way to a new acceptance of foreign-made drill pipe, primarily from China. As of February 2011, however, the US enacted stiff anti-dumping duties on most drill pipe made in China, virtually eliminating imports of Chinese drill pipe. There was only one major Chinese manufacturer that escaped stiff duties. Having to pay only minimal import duties, Baoshan Drill Pipe still maintains a presence in the USA and is the largest steel company and drill pipe manufacturer in China. They avoided the practice of dumping during the collapse of the late 2000’s and as a result, they are still able to import into the US.
