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.
