Texas-Based Pipe Mill Announced

June 2013, Vol. 240, No. 6

Bryan is scheduled to get a new pipe and tubular facility. The Prolamsa Group will build the 300,000-plus tons-per-year facility in the city’s Texas Triangle Park area.

The mill, which will cost in excess of $120 million, is expected to employ more than 285 people. It is scheduled to begin production by mid-2014 and will produce energy tubular products aimed at meeting the growing demand of the oil and natural gas industries.

The facility will operate under a newly formed company, Axis Pipe and Tube, Inc. The plant commissioning is scheduled by mid-2014. The plant will receive and ship by truck and rail. The 183-acre plant will produce ERW energy tubular products in diameters up to 16 inches with wall thicknesses up to .625 inches. It will have the capability to produce API grades and ASTM-specified products.
