Innovating through R&D

Our state-of-the-art Research & Development Center serves as the heart of IPSCO’s innovation initiatives, including new product design and development, experimental and validation testing, and advanced metallurgical research. This 70,000 square foot A2LA-accredited R&D Center combines the most advanced virtual and physical testing equipment with some of the industry’s leading engineers, scientists, and technologists.

A Premier Center for Technology and Product Advancements
The Center employs a team of capable and qualified personnel who maintain a strict quality system with tight control of all aspects of testing and inspection from sample tracking and data management to equipment calibration and test methodologies. Here, we focus on metallurgies, corrosion resistance and testing services as well as customized, engineered solutions for nontraditional drilling environments and new applications and services for existing products to meet the demands of increasingly complex well designs and completion intensity.
