Permalok® Steel Casing Pipe to be Featured in Educational TV Series 'Manufacturing Marvels®'

9 March 2021

Permalok® steel casing pipe will be the subject of the Manufacturing Marvels® television segment airing on the Fox Business Network® (FBN) on March 15, 2021, at approximately 7:30pm PT.

Permalok®, a wholly owned subsidiary of Northwest Pipe Company, manufactures steel casing pipe, which is commonly used in trenchless construction. The proprietary press-fit interlocking connections eliminate field welding and install quicker than any other system on the market today. Often used in microtunneling, pipe jacking, auger boring, and pipe ramming construction applications, these methods minimize environmental and community impact. Located in St. Louis, Permalok® has been manufacturing quality steel casing pipe since 1995 and joined Northwest Pipe Company in 2014.

The video highlights the manufacturing process and quick field installation of Permalok®, which keeps field teams moving forward while avoiding costly delays and field welds. With over four million feet successfully installed and 25 years of manufacturing experience, Permalok® continues to collaborate with customers to develop new products and advance the steel pipe industry.

"We look forward to seeing the Permalok segment air on national television to showcase our St. Louis team's workmanship," said Scott Montross, President and CEO of Northwest Pipe Company. "We hope this segment entertains as well as educates the public on our quality product and the hard work that goes into every piece of Permalok pipe."

Manufacturing Marvels® airs on FBN five nights a week at approximately 7:30pm PT. The two-minute segments spotlight North American manufacturers, their products, and the markets they serve. Last month, the filming crew spent a full day at the St. Louis manufacturing plant to film the upcoming segment. Learn more about Manufacturing Marvels® on their website
