UTUBE Site Swamped by YouTube Users

posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 10/12/2006 07:03:00 PM
It's good to be UTUBE. The company's site traffic has more than tripled in the past week due to publicity about the acquisition of YouTube by Google (Nasdaq GOOG). UTUBE is short for "Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment Corporation." The company offers "wide selection of used, rebuilt, and new equipment for the tube, pipe, and coil processing industries. Includes tube mills, rollformers, benders, shears, and brakes. Site includes current inventory details." UTUBE has been rolling pipes since 1985.
Due to the spillover effect, the site UTUBE.com is getting over a quarter million unique users. UTUBE's headquarters are nothing like YouTube's. However, while YouTube may the starlet of the online video craze, UTUBE gets top honors for being the more experienced online e-commerce company. UTUBE has been online since 1996, while YouTube has only been online since 2005.

The owner of UTUBE turned down a $1 million for the domain. The CEO is holding out for offers of $2.5 to $3.0 million. It is the sixth most popular US manufacturing site, ahead of Whirlpool.
