Team Industries, Inc. is excited to announce the expansion at our Port Arthur, TX facility to begin in December of 2019. This is the largest expansion in our Texas region since acquiring the Team Fabricators facility in 2008. Planned completion of the expansion is set for May 2020.
Phase I construction on Team’s Port Arthur, TX main fabrication building will add an additional 22,822 sq. ft. to the existing 75,000 sq. ft. facility. This expansion brings an impressive segregated fabrication bay dedicated to stainless and high alloy fabrication, an addition to the existing carbon and low alloy fabrication bay and an office remodel.
Phase II consists of a 40,000 sq. ft. newly constructed building for the onsite Paint and Blast facility. Team’s new coating facility will be SSPC-QP3 Certified and equipped with the latest technologies for the surface preparation and coating application of pipe spools, vessels, and structural supports. The coating facility will incorporate an abrasive blast cleaning booth and coating application booths and has additional space for growth.
Mike Schmidt, Team Fabricators Facility Manager stated, “I’m very excited about the plans to expand our Texas facility. This will give Team Fabricators the facility and equipment to meet the upcoming requirements of our customers in the Gulf Coast region and beyond.”
The expansion of this facility was fueled by the growing demand for pipe spool and tank/vessel fabrication in the Gulf Coast region. The ability to meet all project requirements under one roof, from start to finish, will significantly improve project efficiencies. Our focus is on continuous improvement to better meet our customers’ expectations. Team is working closely with the Port Arthur Economic Development Corporation to support this expansion, and is expected to create approximately 50 new jobs over the next two years.
