• Growing Our Global Family

    We are pleased to announce that Vallourec Drilling Products (VDP) recently became part of the NOV family, which we now market under the Grant Prideco brand.

     
    Description

    We have brought together two world-class organizations who are driven by a commitment to deliver the industry’s most innovative and highest quality drilling, completion, and landing tubulars.
     
    We appreciate your continued support as we integrate the acquired intellectual property and assets of VDP into the Grant Prideco organization. We will maintain legacy VDP product lines under new nomenclature and provide global support for these products as prior to the acquisition. As we move the business forward, the best of these technologies will be utilized in our future offerings.
     
    With this growth comes not only the expanded breadth of our combined portfolio, but also some of the best and brightest minds in the industry. The expanded Grant Prideco team will continue to provide highly engineered, technologically advanced products and manufacturing processes that will help you optimize your drilling performance.
     
    The products and processes we are integrating are leaders in innovation, technology, and thoughtful development. These products, combined with our existing product lines, provide value-balanced, performance-based solutions for the most challenging drilling requirements.
     
    We remain committed to purposeful innovation and operational excellence. Supporting our customers is our highest priority, and we look forward to partnering with you today and every day to achieve lasting success.
     
    Please contact us directly if you have any questions regarding this acquisition or our collective product offerings.
