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.

The latest from BUTTING

Donation to the forest kindergarten

March 2020


Two women have the courage to break new ground. To do this, they set up an association, leave their secure jobs and work hard to set up a forest kindergarten in Barwedel / Germany. That's the sort of courage that BUTTING hopes to see in our company and in society as well. So it was a labour of love for Hermann Butting to support this project for the benefit of our region.

Permanent: new marking for pipes from coil

March 2020


Product traceability is an essential quality criterion. This also applies to longitudinally welded stainless steel pipes. With this in mind, BUTTING has optimised its manufacturing process for pipes from coil. In future, pipes produced from coil will be marked using a new procedure. This offers the customer one crucial advantage: the marking is permanently easy to read.
