TapcoEnpro is building a new manufacturing facility in Baytown, Texas, which will create 100 jobs and generate $26 million of capital investment. The company is the recipient of a $675,000 Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) award.
"The state's investment through the Texas Enterprise Fund has helped bring us here to mark the start of construction on TapcoEnpro's new manufacturing facility at Cedar Crossing," said Flow Control Vice President Curtiss Wright and General Manager Clif Jacobs. "We have set a target to improve our competitive position significantly. When completed, our new heavy fabrication facility will provide the flexibility to grow into new markets, offer new products, increase our ability to bid competitively on large-scale refinery projects, and increase our global market share."
TapcoEnpro will build vessels for the refining and petrochemical industries, and support the production of large valve products.
