Continental Industries Brings Production In House

Tulsa-based Continental Industries Inc. brings the in-house manufacture of their anodeless and transition risers.
The anodeless meter riser provides a positive transition joint between polyethylene pipe and the gas-carrying steel pipe of the meter assembly set, and requires no cathodic protection below the ground.
Manufacturing the entire unit in Tulsa will allow CI to manage the quality control and deliver the product to their clients in five days.
“We simply saw a need in the market to take our technology, knowledge and expertise and manufacture alternative risers and transitions,” said Russell Claybrook, vice president of the connectors division of Continental Industries gas & water division. “We are looking at the future and meeting the needs of our clients. Our goal is to be more efficient and deliver a better quality product to our clients.”
For three years CI has seen tremendous growth in their risers sales when they combined risers with their current package. Previously CI worked with an outside supplier to manufacture the anodeless riser. CI will begin tig welding the adapter that protects the actual transition.
Continental, manufacturing fittings since 1958, is an industry leader in the manufacturing of plastic and steel mechanical fittings for the gas and water industry.
An ISO 9001 certified company, CI has manufacturing locations in Tulsa and Broken Arrow.
