Brawler Industries Invests More Than $10 Million To Expand Houston, Texas, Manufacturing Center

Brawler Industries, an industry leader in the development and manufacture of specialty-engineered liners for containment and fluid management applications, is investing over $10 million to expand its manufacturing facility in Houston, Texas.

According to the firm, its expansion will significantly enhance Brawler’s production capabilities and increase its capacity to formulate proprietary developed scrim reinforced and linear low- and high-density liners that meet or exceed GRI-GM13 and GRI-GM17 standards.

When completed in late 2015, the facility will include new multi-layer blow film geo-membrane and high speed laminating lines to complement its existing polyethylene extrusion capacity. The expansion will be completed in stages and fully operational by late 2015.

Brawler Industries, a portfolio company of Tailwind Capital, has been producing customized quick-turn flexible reserve pit and frac liners used for horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing for nearly 30 years. The U.S.-based company was one of the first to manufactures and convert reinforced and unreinforced polyethylene sheeting in a wide variety of thickness and dimensions providing superior longevity, flexibility, durability and chemical resistance.

While maintaining its solid footing in the energy sector, the new facility will also allow Brawler to target flexible liner applications in many other industries, company officials said.

Brawler has decades of experience providing value-engineered liners on short lead times to the oil and gas industry,” says Kent Metzger, Vice President of Sales for Brawler Industries. “We want to build on our longstanding position in energy by providing superior quality, service and choices to the customers in the agricultural, environmental and constructions markets.”
