Standard Alloys Opens New Machine Shop in Houston
December 1, 2015
In early November, Standard Alloys Inc., Port Arthur, Texas, opened its new 15,000-sq.-ft. facility in Deer Park, Texas. The $1 million investment will operate as a repair center for Standard Alloys, which specializes in engineering and repairing replacement castings for a number of industries including refining, chemical, power and water.
The machine shop will have tools, lathes and assembly and disassembly operations. The new facility will support Standard Alloys’ metalcasting operation in Port Arthur, which pours more than 300 alloys.
“We can make the parts needed for pump repair whether they require fabrication, casting and/or machining,” said Richard Martinez, managing director, Standard Alloys. “This means that our customers know where their parts are manufactured and are welcome to come witness throughout the process. It’s simply a matter of reverse engineering the parts, making a pattern, and pouring a casting.”
Standard Alloys was acquired by the KSB Group, Frankenthal, Germany, in 2010. The new facility is the company’s third, with other sites in Vidor, Texas, and Port Allen, La.
