The Prolamsa Group has announced plans to build a $120 million pipe and tubular products facility in Bryan, Texas. The plant, which is expected to employ more than 285 people, will produce 300,000+ tons of ERW energy tubular products per year in diameters up to 16 in. with wall thicknesses up to 0.625 in. It will have the capability to produce API grades as well as ASTM specified products.
The facility will operate under a newly formed company, Axis Pipe and Tube Inc. Construction will begin in the next few weeks, with plant commissioning scheduled for the second quarter of 2014.
