Tri Tool’s New Houston Facility to Serve Gulf Region
Tri Tool Incorporated will be opening a new 15,000 square foot office and warehouse location to better serve the Offshore and Onshore Pipeline Oil & Gas industries in the Gulf Region.
On May 7th, Tri Tool will be hosting a grand opening event inviting Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) attendees to view the facility, live welding and machining demonstrations.
“Tri Tool has had a presence in the Houston area for years, but the focus was on service and rental of our 200, 300 and 600 Series in situ machine tools,” stated Jerri Wernette, Executive Vice President. “With the popularity of our PipeMaster® Pipe Facing Machines and ClampMaster® Internal Line-Up Clamps, and introduction of our new High Production Counterbore Service, we decided that an expansion was required. We needed a facility where we could house, rent and service our pipeline equipment and quickly mobilize our service personnel to meet the demands of our Oil & Gas customers.”
This new larger facility will also be the base for Tri Tool’s high production CNC Counterbore Service with newly developed machining technology. Tri Tool delivers deep counterbore precision, rapid cycle times and superior surface finishes, using the safest pipe handling system available.
To meet the demands of the ever expanding Oil & Gas markets, Tri Tool has hired a new Oil & Gas Sales Manager, Robert Korey. “Robert brings 20 years of experience in the Oil & Gas and Power Generation industries,” says Chuck Friedrichs, Vice President of Domestic Sales. “We know his knowledge in these fields will be a great asset to our team. We look forward to him working with and assisting our customers in the Gulf Region.”
