Foundation of SCouP SRL, a dedicated company for SMA couplings

After several new SMA pipe coupling development contracts and corresponding technological and industrial break-throughs', a dedicated jointly held (50% ChP Consult + 50% Flexmet) company was founded in February 2020.

About the company name and logo:

  • The company's name SCouP was deduced from the first ESA project acronym (Shape Memory Alloy Couplings for Pipes).
  • The company's logo symbolically represents a pipe assembly with the help of SMA couplings. The blue colour of the couplings suggests the sky which in turn suggests an aerospace focus. The assembly features connections of pipes of same diameters, different diameters and a "Tee" connection. The aim is to suggest that SCouP can provide solutions to a wide variety of pipe connection situations.
