Tubular Perforating Manufacturing

Building With Integrity

Tubular Perforating Manufacturing, Ltd., (TPM) is the leading innovator in oilfield perforated tubing and a trusted source for cost-effective solutions. In an industry where turnaround times are short, product specifications are demanding, and downhole conditions are rugged, TPM tubing is the preferred solution for many operators worldwide.

TPM products are also used in water treatment, food processing, nuclear energy, and pulp and paper industries. Typical applications are support cores and protective shrouds for filters and strainers.

The Company

TPM was founded in 1992 by Edward F. Blackburne, Jr., who pioneered a revolutionary process for making custom, spiral-welded, metal tubing.

The process, which incorporates specially designed mills and proprietary techniques, gave TPM unprecedented flexibility in handling various product sizes and features. It also provided the consistent quality, production speed, and cost-efficiency TPM needed to earn a loyal customer base in a variety of industries.

Measured Growth

This innovative production technology, along with an unwavering commitment to responsive service, launched an era of steady growth and success for TPM. Expanded plant facilities, additional production lines, and continually refined manufacturing methods have since kept TPM at the forefront of the industry.

A Force For New Technology

Today, TPM serves a global marketplace. A recognized leader in producing components for oilfield screen assemblies, TPM has developed patented UniScreen,™ OnScreen™ and AccuShroud sand screens and recently introduced proprietary IsoFlo™ balanced-flow sand-control screen products.

Independent, Agile, Capable
