In 1948 Peter Hoberg and Toni Driesch founded their own steel piping and tubing company. Their aim was to provide their clientele with something unique: a range of all possible high quality steel pipe and tube variants, always available for delivery at any time.
Their concept proved successful: Hoberg & Driesch is today not only one of Europe’s leading steel pipe and tube wholesalers, it can also boast a very satisfied customer base. And with good reason.
We are proud of our independence and as a privately owned company we can offer the reliability that you look for in a trustworthy business relationship. Our focus is on a wide range of seamless and welded, high quality steel tube products from German and international manufactures.
