The Techint Group is a multinational corporation based in Argentina and founded by Agostino Rocca, an engineer, manager and entrepreneur of italian origin. Since its foundation in 1945, Techint has become a regional and world leader in steel making, building of complex infrastructures, design and assembly of industrial plants, oil and gas exploration and production, and selected public services. Its merging with other Latin American steel, oil, and gas providers, as well as its ownership of over one hundred affiliated companies operating worldwide has managed to consolidate a solid pathway towards the company's ultimate goal of multilocal and multiregional presence, ensuring its presence in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas.

The totality of the Techint Group can be subdivided into a group of 6 major sub-companies, each one in charge of a different set of operations, as follows:

Tenaris has a leading global presence in seamless and welded tubular products, technologies and services for the oil and gas industry and for specialized industrial applications

Ternium is a leading Latin American supplier of flat and long steel products with world class steel mills and processing facilities throughout the Americas;

Techint Engineering and Construction (E&C) is involved in major projects on a world scale, and is internationally recognized as top ranking builder of pipelines, oil and gas facilities and metals and mining plants;

Tenova offers a number of world leading technologies and capital goods for the metals, mining, power, raw material and rock wool industries worldwide;

Tecpetrol is involved in oil and gas exploration and development, as well as in gas transportation and distribution projects in the South American region;

Humanitas has established a relevant presence in the supply of health services in Italy managed with a technologically advanced, patient oriented approach.

Company History

“Compagnia Tecnica Internazionale” - soon named TECHINT after the original telex code - was founded as an international corporation in 1945. The founder, Agostino Rocca, was an innovative engineer, manager and entrepreneur, and a key force behind the development of the Italian steel industry in the 1930s. The company began by providing engineering services to a growing number of clients in Latin America - to where Agostino Rocca had traveled after World War II - and Europe.

Construction activities soon followed: the first major Techint engineering and construction (E&C) project was a network of large diameter pipelines in Argentina and Brazil. After building the southern gas pipeline in Argentina (inaugurated in 1949), and completing other pipeline projects, the E&C activities of the company extended during the 1950s to the field of power infrastructure. In those early years, production of steel structures and heavy mechanical equipment and parts was also started near Buenos Aires in order to support the industrial ventures which soon followed. The company expanded and diversified its original activities by building and then operating two seamless steel tube plants, one in Veracruz (Mexico) and the other in Campana (Argentina). Both plants began production in 1954. In the late 1960s a flat steel cold-rolling facility was built in Ensenada (Argentina), which was meant to be the first step of a planned fully integrated operation. Steel manufacturing was now the main industrial activity of the Techint Group.

In the 1960s and 1970s the E&C activities were developed further, establishing Techint as one of the world’s major pipeline builders, and a supplier of turnkey plants for productions ranging from steel to petrochemicals. In sixty years of activity, Techint E&C has successfully completed around 3,500 projects in more than 50 countries, and is presently engaged in large industrial and infrastructure projects worldwide. The Techint Group’s steel pipes business also continued to grow.

In the mid-1980s it undertook a major, export-oriented expansion of the Campana mill, and acquire Argentine welded pipe maker Siat. In the 1990s it also acquired control of the Veracruz mill in Mexico and the Dalmine seamless pipe mill in Italy. Steel pipe manufacturing facilities were also, in time, acquired in Brazil, Venezuela, Japan, Canada and Romania.

Tenaris, the company under which all the manufacturing and service activities in the steel pipe business were grouped, went public at the end of 2002. Late in 2006 Tenaris acquired Maverick Tube Corp., a leading North American producer of welded oil country tubular goods (OCTG), line pipe and coiled tubing for use in oil and natural gas wells. In May 2007 Tenaris acquired Hydril, a renowned producer of premium OCTG connections in the USA with a solid international presence. Today, Tenaris is the leading global manufacturer and provider of tubular products and services used in drilling, completion and production of oil and gas, in process and power plants, and in specialized industrial and automotive applications. Tenaris continues to strengthen its competitive position investing heavily in research and the continuous improvement of its talented workforce. Cold rolling of flat steel in Argentina continued to grow through the 1980s.

In 1992 the Group acquired a majority share of Somisa, the largest integrated flat steel plant in Argentina, and brought it up rapidly to international production standards through a major investment program. Steel coating and processing capacities were also expanded through investments and acquisitions. All Argentine flat steel facilities were then integrated in Siderar, which today is part of Ternium, a public company that also has control of Sidor, Venezuela - one of the largest and most efficient plants in Latin America - which was acquired in 1997.

In August, 2005 Ternium acquired Hylsa, the largest steel manufacturer in Mexico, and the one with the highest level of vertical integration, from the extraction and processing of iron ore to the manufacturing of value-added steel products.

In August 2007 Ternium acquired IMSA, a company with a strong presence in Mexico and processing facilities in Guatemala and the United States, achieving a potential to ship to market up to 12 million tons of steel products per year. Ternium, which has become one of the most significant and dynamic players in the Americas, plans to carry out important investments in its steel mills and in mining exploration in order to increase production, improve quality and draw synergies from process integration and product specialization.

Starting in the 1980s, a series of acquisitions and expansions in Italy had multiplied the portfolio of products and leading technological solutions, particularly for the metals and raw materials industries. Recent acquisitions under the Tenova brand have increased the scope and global presence of the business whose product lines today include direct reduction plants, melt shops, secondary steel making facilities, reheating and heat treatment furnaces, roll grinders and roll shops, mining and bulk material handling systems and plants for glass and rock wool.

During the 1990s the Techint Group also invested in oil and gas blocks in Argentina through exploration and production company Tecpetrol. In time, the company has acquired operations in Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela. Through Tecpetrol, the Group also holds operating interests in a number of gas transportation businesses, such as TGN in Argentina and TGP in Peru. The latter holds the concession of the two Camisea trans-Andean pipelines, one for gas and one for liquids, whose construction has been one of the most challenging projects undertaken by Techint. Tecpetrol continues to pursue the development of energy infrastructure projects in the Southern Cone, a synergic field of activity involving all the major strengths of the Group.

In Italy, the Techint Group entered the health services sector in the mid 1990s by building and managing Istituto Clinico Humanitas, a state-of-the-art hospital and medical research institute near Milan. Specialized company Humanitas has subsequently acquired controlling interests in other important private hospitals in Bergamo, Turin, Catania and Castellanza, where the successful technology-based and patient-oriented management model originally adopted in Istituto Clinico has been replicated. Humanitas continues to invest in new health and science facilities, consolidating its position as a foremost private health concern in Italy.

Today, the Techint Group comprises more than 100 companies operating worldwide with a workforce of experienced professionals and skilled workers numbering 51,600 permanent employees. The global annual turnover of companies of the Techint Group, public and non-public, is USD 22 billion. [1]

PERU: Fresh Evidence of Construction Problems in Camisea Pipeline

Techint, the Argentine company that built the Camisea pipeline which carries natural gas from Peru's Amazon jungle region to a port on the country's Pacific coast, used unqualified welders, in a clear violation of international norms, according to a new report by E-Tech, a California-based non-profit engineering and environmental consultancy firm.

The pipeline leaked five times in less than two years, from late 2004 to March 2006, prompting an outcry against TGP and forcing the government of former president Alejandro Toledo to order an audit to investigate the leaks.

PERU: Bank Signals More Funds for Problematic Pipeline

Critics of a controversial pipeline in the Amazon rainforest that has ruptured five times since its inception in 2004 are dismayed that the main public funder of the project is on the verge of giving more money for its second phase despite earlier promises to await the results of audits probing the pipeline's persistent leaks.

Last week, the Washington-based Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) signed a "mandate letter" with companies of the Peru Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) pipeline that transports gas from the highly controversial Camisea field.

SOUTH AMERICA: Debate on Infrastructure Mega-Projects Finally Begins

BUENOS AIRES, Oct 16 (IPS) - Rather late and somewhat quietly, civil society organisations have begun to discuss the impact of the Initiative for the Integration of Regional Infrastructure in South America (IIRSA), launched by the region's governments in 2000, which is planning 335 major projects.

Concerned about the lack of available information on the projects, some of which have already got underway, the South American Regional Committee of the World Conservation Union (UICN-Sur) convened an Electronic Forum on Civil Society Perspectives on IIRSA, which opened in September and ended this month with a summary of the contributions received.

"Will IIRSA really be effective for sustainable development?" Silvia Sánchez, of the Peruvian Association for Nature Conservation, asked on the Internet forum. "Highways are valuable, but they're useless unless they go hand in hand with land use planning that puts human beings at the centre of development," she said.

Human Rights

November, 2002

Techint violently repressed, through the use of nearly 30 members of the 44th "Comandancia de la Policía Nacional", a pacific protest held by workers in Kiteni, Alto Urubama, Peru, who demanded effective improvements in laboring conditions, adecuate work tools, and food provision.
