Systems Approach Selling Points that Pressure Pipe Manufacturers can Point to Clients

Posted on

The construction industry is expected to experience exponential growth between 2019 and 2021. It is an opportunity for not only the construction industry but also for related industries such as system pipe manufacturers. Therefore, if you are in the pressure pipe fabrication business, then you should take advantage of the projected growth. However, strategic operations are necessary when manufacturing pressure mainly because of the high competition in the market. With some pipe suppliers supplying pressure pipes on a piecemeal approach, a systems approach will help you beat competition effectively. This article highlights a few benefits of the systems approach.

Availability of Compatible Parts

When clients shop for pressure pipes, for either a sewer or underground water supply system, they are looking for something more. They do not want to go from one fabrication shop to the next trying to find compatible pipes and parts. The need can be attributed to the fact that compatibility allows for a smooth installation process. A systems approach, for instance, makes it possible for manufacturers to produce liners or stiffeners that can be used on different pipe sizes and lengths. The same would apply to pipe connectors where clients will have access to connectors that can be used to join pipes of varying diameters.

Faster Installation

On-site installation of pipes on a construction site can take quite a bit of time, which can be attributed to the uncertainties associated with the industry such as weather conditions. For example, if it starts to rain as site workers begin to lay underground pressure pipes, the time and resources needed might double. However, since a systems approach involves assembly in a factory, some of the uncertainties become a non-issue. Therefore, it enables clients to spend very little time when installing piping systems for their sewer or water supply. Additionally, there are high chances that pipes and related parts will get damaged with an on-site installation. As such, assembling pressure pipes at the fabrication shop will reduce wastages related to damages.

Smaller Field Crews

One objective of contractors is to keep operating costs as low as possible, and use of small field crews is one way to achieve cost saving. The size of plumbing crews usually depends on the complexity of the piping system to be installed. A systems approach is the only sure way pipe manufacturers can help contractors in this regard. By fabricating and assembling pressure pipes at a manufacturer's shop, you allow contractors to use the small crews in an already assembled piping system.
