The Pipe Line Development Company, or PLIDCO®, is a United States, family owned business, founded in 1949 by Joseph B. and Berneice K. Smith. PLIDCO® manufactures pipe line repair and maintenance fittings and holds many patents throughout the world with hundreds of thousands of fittings sold. The factory has 56,000 square feet of office and lab space, and employs 80 people. The factory has all of the standard fabrication and machine tools plus special equipment required to completely manufacture standard and special fittings.

PLIDCO® fittings have been used worldwide for pipeline repair and maintenance, in a wide variety of applications, both onshore and offshore. Applications include oil, gas, water, chemical, steam, slurry and other piping systems. PLIDCO® fittings are designed and manufactured following the applicable codes, and a strict Quality Control program. These proven products have enabled customers to avoid or minimize costly and dangerous shutdowns, saving risk, time, and money. All products are designed to quickly and safely repair pipelines, most without shutdown; all to keep downtime to a minimum. PLIDCO® products can be backwelded with the line in operation, or bolted-only for weld-hazardous or weld-difficult areas. Factory trained technicians are available to assist you with difficult installations or with measurements for special designs.
