Metex Yekaterinburg says Maxi Group to have hard time entering weldless pipe market

31 August 2007 (12:44)

‘Maxi Group is going to have a hard time breaking into the weldless pipe market; such pipes are made by a great number of companies, so the competition is quite fierce,’ Metex Yekaterinburg’s Sales Manager Sergey Chelkov said to UrBC.

Mr. Chelkov believes that because of this competition, Maxi Group will spend a lot of time finding its customers and will even have to sell at low prices.

‘If they want to stay on the market, their weldless pipes must be cheaper than those of their competitors,’ he says.

Maxi Group has recently started putting up a weldless pipe production plant in Revda; experts tend to feel the company is going to experience a number of difficulties winning its share of the market.
