Interpipe Registers Trademark in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to Fight Fake Steel

Global steel pipe producer Interpipe has registered its trademark with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This follows the trademark registration in UAE in 2015, a move that will strengthen the company’s position in its fight against counterfeit steel pipings.
“Over the last five years, we have supplied over 80 thousand tons of pipe products for clients from the Kingdom. However, we are increasingly facing competition from counterfeit products on the market. The registration of the trademark is a measure to protect our clients from counterfeit products of inferior quality and reinforces the company’s commitment to delivering the highest quality certified steel”, commented Andrey Burtsev, Commercial Director for Middle East, Africa and Asia markets, Interpipe.
With a mission to fight against fake steel across the Middle East market, Interpipe is an active member of Steel Alliance Against Counterfeiting. It is a non-profit organization that now counts 18 reputable producers of steel pipes, flanges and fittings as members. The mission of the Alliance is to ensure quality and safety in the construction segment and its protection against trademark counterfeiting through close cooperation with governmental bodies, distributors and contractors around the Gulf.
