WITH ALMOST A CENTURY OF SERVICE, NEW ORLEANS COPPER, INC. is anything but what the name implies. Today the company is involved in the fabrication and bending of all types of tubing and pipes-especially to the dozens of major petroleum, petrochemical, pipeline and shipbuilding companies who recognize us an industry leader in the bending of carbon steel and alloy pipe products.
Since 1930, our company was an innovator, first in the bending of copper tanks and coils for the distillery, brewing and sugar refineries in the Gulf South. Through the generations of family ownership, we’ve changed our business along with the changes and demands of industry, technology and materials.
After WWII, the challenges of an emerging economy produced a boom in the oil and gas exploration industry. New Orleans Copper was asked to bend pipe for Shell Oil Company – and word got around. Ever since, we have provided services to the drilling and pipeline industry worldwide -both onshore and offshore.
New Orleans Copper, Inc. has become a leading designer in expansion loops for the oil and gas industry. Virtually every drilling platform in the Gulf of Mexico have been supplied bends for pipelines, flow lines and bumpers for oil rig flow lines by New Orleans Copper.
