Water Transmission, Our Bread & Butter The Water Transmission Group is the largest manufacturer of engineered steel pipe water conveyance systems in North America. With our Water Transmission manufacturing facilities, the Group is positioned to meet North America’s growing needs for water and wastewater infrastructure.

The Water Transmission Group serves a wide range of markets and their solution-based products are a good fit for applications including: water transmission, plant piping, low pressure and gravity flow, energy, tunnels, river, railroad and highway crossings, large diameter pressure pipe rehabilitation, structural, and industrial. Casing Pipe Enhancing our product offerings is the proprietary Permalok® steel casing pipes. We offer a wide range of custom fabrications ranging from elbows, flanges and tees to ring girders and bifurcations.

Permalok®  – Enhancing our product offerings is the proprietary Permalok® steel casing pipe, a proprietary interlocking push joint system that eliminates the need to field butt-weld traditional plain-ended steel casing pipe.

The acquisition of Permalok® in January 2014 now enables us to provide high quality casing pipe on water and sewer pipeline projects whenever design and specifications require added structural protection of a carrier pipe while crossing roads, railways and other man-made and natural obstacles.

Variety of Sizes and Wall Thicknesses We provide several different types of connection systems as well as a host of linings and coatings for corrosion protection. Diameters range from 30-inch to 150-inch, and wall thickness of up to 2 1/2-inch.

With plants located in St. Louis, MO and Salt Lake City, UT, Permalok® can be supplied to your projects anywhere in North America.

Beginning in 1999, Northwest Pipe has used its 100+ years of experience working with steel products  to manufacture and provide  ASME pressure vessels, tanks, pipe fittings and custom fabrications  to customers around the world. As a registered maquiladora operation all of our products are exported to the U.S. and find their way from our U.S. customers to the end user. Many of the finished goods are then exported to destinations around the world.
