It was just three years ago that the owners of pipe manufacturer Bilcon Industries, based in Singapore, made a decision to introduce new pipe technology. Following the construction of a test line, the company swiftly made a start on in-house production of the concrete-HDPE Perfect Pipe (the initial report can be read in BWI 2/2016). Ever since, the corrosion-resistant concrete pipe with its easy-to-install connector, conceived by system developers Schlüsselbauer Technology, has been produced at the Singapore site and successfully deployed in dozens of pipe jacking operations. After just two years of market development, rapid growth in demand has prompted this highly reputable manufacturer to bring into service an automated production line with higher capacity, at a new site.
