PipeSearch started with a technology mind that saw an opportunity to disrupt the tubular industry and a tubular industry expert that saw the value in bringing a digital platform to the space. The two realized the buying and selling of OCTG was generations behind other markets. There was real value to be had in bringing it online, supporting it with data and analytics, and ensuring confidence in material quality and reliability. From this passion for improvement, PipeSearch was born.

Today the team is comprised of knowledgeable industry veterans, talented technologists, and expert operations managers. Our team is dedicated to the construction of technology that will bring trust, transparency, efficiency, and communication to the surplus OCTG market.

Our goal at PipeSearch is to create the first digital global warehouse for buyers and sellers of OCTG to connect and transact with confidence. We believe bringing superior quality assurance, advanced data enrichment, and automated trend and market analysis to the transactions will benefit the tubular industry by providing a higher return for surplus owners and viable, compliant options for critical end-user requirements.

Meet the team working to make it all happen.

A Message From Our Founder
PipeSearch started with a single hypothesis: digital technology can benefit everyone within the steel pipe ecosystem. PipeSearch began attempting to connect supply and demand via a web platform instead of traditional channels. It was an underwhelming failure.
We listened to customers, found a strategic partner in CRA, and re-focussed on the missing piece of the equation: trust. PipeFacts was born to create trust by doing two things, identify every data point that can impact reliability, and deliver an impartial data profile for assets in the secondary market. We combined this effort with next-generation technology to better connect the industry to opportunity.
