Falcon Steel America Acquires Manufacturing Facility in Conroe, Texas
New plant increases company’s production capacity by 60% annually with plans for 150 new hires
CONROE, Texas – November 28, 2017 – Falcon Steel America (FSA), a leading designer, engineer and fabricator of American-made steel structures, announced today that it has acquired a 226,000-square foot manufacturing facility in Conroe, Texas. The addition of the new plant, located at 3575 Pollok Drive and sited on 25 acres, will more than double the company’s manufacturing capacity for high voltage steel-lattice towers and commercial galvanizing and dulling operations.
“We see robust growth opportunities on the horizon, and our expansion into Conroe allows us to significantly increase our production, and shrink turnaround time between fabrication and delivery for our customers,” said chief executive officer Jim Taylor. “Further, our new world-class facility establishes a strategic foothold for our company in the Greater Houston area. We look forward to being an active community partner in Conroe and Montgomery County and continuing to build upon our ‘Buy American, Hire American’ initiatives.”
FSA anticipates hiring 150 local skilled and unskilled workers, including quality assurance and quality control inspectors, welders, fitters, machine operators and truck drivers in the near term. Information about available positions and job fairs will be announced on the company website and on company social media channels in the coming weeks.
FSA builds and galvanizes steel monopoles and substations and is the only fabricator of high voltage steel-lattice towers in the United States, making it possible to quickly deliver critical structures to customers especially in times of disaster. The company believes in being environmentally responsible and uses 100% United States recycled steel.
At the new Conroe facility, the company will first establish its fabrication line, followed by its galvanizing line. Within the first year of operations, FSA will expand production to monopoles.
