5ELEM and NordiTube extend their Cooperation
Cooperation of leading Chinese tech-manufacturer with leading European pipe rehabilitation technology provider advances to the next level
The signing of a master license for the Chinese market, in July 2020, was the beginning of the strategic partnership between 5ELEM and NordiTube. Now, two years later, 5ELEM becomes the main shareholder of NordiTube Technologies SE. Together the two companies will expand their presence and will provide their rehabilitation technologies to customers in all global markets.
5ELEM – LEADING CHINESE TEC-MANUFACTURER
5ELEM, located in Jiangsu, China, is one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality woven jacket hoses and rubber-covered hoses in the world for a wide range of applications such as firefighting, irrigation, mining, marine, petrochemical, water discharging, manure transfer, fertilizing and shale gas exploration.
NORDITUBE – LEADING TECHNOLOGY PROVIDER FOR TRENCHLESS PIPE REHABILITATION
NordiTube Technologies has already established a global position as the leading technology provider for trenchless pipe rehabilitation especially for pressure applications, like potable water and gas and has been producing CIPP liners for more than 35 years with its own production site in Belgium. NordiTube’s long-standing experience in producing CIPP rehabilitation liners is an optimal condition for the cooperation.
Thanks to the partnership, 5 ELEM and NordiTube are able to offer leading expertise in no-dig technology production with local know-how and service in all global markets. NordiTube contributes its leading expertise in innovative technologies, comprehensive know-how and proven systems while 5ELEM contributes the hi-tech infrastructure for the production and access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
At the same time, 5ELEM becomes a minority shareholder in RTi Austria Group, a leading rehabilitation service provider with international references and partners. This will allow the new 5ELEM – NordiTube Cooperation to support global customers with RTi Austria Group’s experienced design and installation teams.
5ELEM and NORDITUBE are now providing the largest portfolio of pipe rehabilitation technologies as solutions to solve problems related to aging pipe infrastructure.
“We are very happy to announce the next step of our cooperation with 5ELEM, which represents an excellent opportunity for us to expand production capacity for NordiTube´s technologies worldwide. The additional production facilities and the additional 5ELEM products, like the High-Pressure Long Distance IH liner, will be a perfect complement to our global representation,” Jan Luksch, Managing Director of NordiTube Technologies SE proudly announces.
