Our products

Our business activity focuses on the processing of stainless steels, particularly special steels and clad materials, to create "tailor-made product solutions".

Stainless steel welded pipes

Since stainless steel made its entry into the industry, we have been offering longitudinally welded pipes in sizes from 18 to 3 000 mm with wall thicknesses of up to 70 mm.

Clad pipes

Our line pipes and riser pipes fulfill highest requirements as to corrosion resistance, strength and cost effectiveness in corrosion-resistant or clad completion.

Vessels, tanks and apparatus

At BUTTING vessels with a height of up to 16 m and a diameter of up to 6 m are constructed in one part, larger dimensions are produced in segmented parts.

Spools and plant construction

In an ideal case, welds on site can be reduced by more than 80 % through the prefabrication of pipelines in our works. We produce sophisticated welding constructions in more than 85 different material grades inclusive of machining and customized quality assurance.

Customised components

For you we produce special pipes with tight tolerances on form and position and special surface conditions. Together with you, we develop individual solutions for structural components ready for installation.


The assembly of pipelines and vessels is a responsible task. BUTTING guarantees their customers a professional handling of all materials, experienced staff in logistics and site management, as well as timely completion of the installation work.

Christmas donation to the Hankensbüttel Grammar School rowing club

January 2020

For BUTTING, living social responsibility means, among other things, getting involved in the region in a variety of ways. Against this background, the family-owned company from Knesebeck again decided against Christmas presents for its customers this year. Instead, the Hankensbüttel Grammar School rowing club (RVGH) was given financial support to construct new sanitary facilities with a youth fitness area.

Variety of production options pays off

December 2019

BUTTING is the only pipe manufacturer in the world that produces longitudinally welded stainless steel pipes as well as metallurgically clad and mechanically lined pipes (BuBi® pipes). Our customer TechnipFMC utilised the production of these different pipe types "from a single source" and ordered all three pipe variants for the Duva & P1 project from the main plant in Knesebeck.

Investment in Research and Development

December 2019

For about 240 years, the name BUTTING has stood for quality and reliability in metal processing. Therefore we are always open to new procedures in quality control. Against this background, BUTTING recently acquired an innovative company with extensive expertise in the field of ultrasonic testing.
