History
In 1948, Compagnie Industrielle du Nord, better known by its brand name, Chantecler, creates Petrometalic, Inc. in Cambrai. At the time, its business was essentially geared towards gas station maintenance and fuel delivery.

Chantecler is sold to Total in 1956 and Petrometalic SA expands and broadens its expertise in fluid regulation. Soon its operations cover four primary sectors: petroleum, industrial pipes, hydraulic connectors, and manufacturing booster pumps, injection pumps, and inflatable packers (TP and industry).

During the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s the family business builds its reputation in France and abroad, becoming known not only for its extensive experience with industrial piping and selling all types of connectors, but also for the quality of its water infusion rods and its packers (BIMBAR).

Around the year 2000, however, Petrometalic decides to focus its activities with the aim of becoming even more flexible and innovative. For this reason, in 1998 the company sells its maintenance division and its electronic petroleum laboratory to Schlumberger. Then, in 2003, the ATI department (industrial piping) is made into a subsidiary, becoming Petrometalic Fluid Systems. Around that time, the company starts developing geotechnical probes and pneumatic sampling pumps, which have numerous environmental applications (bore hole permeability tests, CO2 capture, soil remediation, etc.)

Today, Petrometalic employs some 40 people and exports to 50 countries, making the most of its rich experience, its ability to react quickly to new challenges, and its well-known technical skills. Over the years, Petrometalic’s primary objective has been to optimize the quality of its services for its clients.

Regarding fluid regulation, Petrometalic has been committed to producing and selling products finely adapted to their client’s needs for 50 years. With over 100 product categories, the company has a permanent stock worth 3 million Euros. If necessary, Petrometalic can also design products end-to-end, as is already the case for many booster pumps, cement pumps, infusion rods, packers, threaded sleeves and certain types of probes.

Petrometalic has separated its hydraulics activities into three departments:

  • Hydraulics Department/ Connectors & Accessories
  • Hydraulics Department/ Specific Activities
  • Hydraulics Department/ Petroleum & Development

Connectors & Accessories
The Connectors & Accessories department stocks and sells specialized industrial supplies for connections (hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, and petroleum/fire related) and also installs flexible hoses (Parker)

Specific TP & Industry Activities
The Specific Activities department (TP and Industry) designs and sells inflatable packers (BIMBAR), test pumps, and booster pumps, as well as components for high- and very high-pressure fluid circulation.

Petroleum & Development department
The Petroleum & Development department researches and designs specialized, custom-built equipment for resolving petroleum-related, hydraulic, and geotechnical problems, as well as numerous environmental applications (permeability tests, soil remediation, CO2 capture, etc.)
