Who We Are and What We Do
Pipes rank amongst the most essential innovations of and for our civilizations. The denser the population, the more our all health and wellbeing, that of our economies and not least of our environment depend on functioning piping systems: We need them for potable water supply, irrigation, sewage discharge, for road, tunnel and bridge drainage, to convey water to and from industries and for producing green energy.
We produce pipe systems with state of the art production technologies and market them for these application fields. With the services and support we offer from dimensioning and routing pipelines through calculations to consultancy on site, our products have been installed by a variety of methods such as open trench, jacking, microtunneling, sliplining and above ground in more than 100 countries. Totaling thousands of kilometers of pipe, the line would span the world several times.
Hobas centrifugally cast glassfiber reinforced plastic (CC-GRP) pipe systems are the product of over six decades of innovation, experience, and development. In 2017, the two market leaders for glassfiber reinforced plastic pipes – Hobas Europe, and Amiantit Europe with its Flowtite technology – have combined forces to form a joint venture company, Amiblu.
Hobas is fully owned by Amiblu Holding GmbH through its subsidiary Amiblu Technology AS. Amiblu Technology licenses out its respective technologies, Flowtite and Hobas, to various partner companies operating outside of Europe.
