It has offices in Australia, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan and affiliations worldwide.

Founded in 1987 in Perth, Western Australia, PFP Aust has developed strong network associations globally with internationally recognised manufacturers supporting continued growth and increasing market demands for products such as Flanges, Pressure Vessel components, Valves, Engineered Products, Forged Components, Buttweld Fittings and Heavy Wall Pipes in general & sophisticated materials.

In addition to these manufacturing associations PFP Aust has forged close relationships with a number of the world’s best practice stockists, to supplement their own inventory. This enables them to offer and service a comprehensive product range covering all grades of pipe, fittings, flanges and valves on either a stock basis and or a priority delivery, dependant upon the clients needs.

Since the late 1980’s PFP Aust’s products have been instrumental in the servicing of key oil and gas projects for a who’s who of industry clients concentrated predominantly in Australasia.

During 2000 the company took the next step towards expanding its market coverage and service to its target markets, with the opening of a branch in Brisbane Queensland, the primary objective being to service existing clients and develop new business on the East Coast of Australia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand & New Caledonia.

Further expansion took place during 2005, through the growth of the Specialist Stock operation, resulting in the commitment to inventory increasing from the current 3000 tonnes of Buttweld Fittings & Flanges, warehoused at the Perth operation, to 4000 tonnes by the end of 2006, with additional commitments increasing this to 5000 tonnes by the end of 2007.

The growth of this division is forecast to contribute to a significant increase in PFP Aust’s scope of supply and the ability to service short lead and stock requirements of the industry.

PFPs ongoing commitment to servicing its clients, incorporates the planned opening of additional branches during the coming years, which will ensure they maintain and improve their customer service objectives.
