The Prolamsa Group Invests More Than $120 Million In Bryan, Texas, Pipe Mill
The firm said the plant, which will operate under a newly-formed company, Axis Pipe and Tube, Inc., scheduled to begin production by mid-2014. It will produce energy tubular products aimed at meeting the growing demand of the U.S. oil and natural gas industries. The new 183 acre plant, which will receive and ship by both truck and rail, will produce ERW energy tubular products in diameters up to 16", with wall thicknesses up to .625”. It will have the capability to produce API grades as well as ASTM specified products.
Bryan, Texas, located in Brazos County, was selected after a comprehensive search of possible sites throughout the southeastern and southwestern United States, company officials said. Bryan was chosen for several reasons including the business-friendly environment, the adequate supply of skilled labor nearby, and its proximity to a large and growing base of customers for the plant's products. Prolamsa has been granted approvals for certain economic incentives, and is in the process of processing and finalizing others, which played a critical role throughout the site selection process.
A company spokesman said, "Everyone from Governor Perry's office, to public officials from Brazos County and the city of Bryan, and the Research Valley Partnership was extremely helpful and provided the information and an enthusiastic spirit that convinced us to locate in Bryan. We felt they truly wanted us as neighbors and business partners."
The Prolamsa Group was established in 1954 and is a leading in North America. It currently operates major mills and distribution centers in Mexico and Texas.
