Corrosion Resistant Alloys, LP (CRA) (Houston, Texas, USA), a just-in-time manufacturer of corrosion-resistant alloy tubulars, recently broke ground on the construction of a new manufacturing facility in Brenham, Texas.

According to the company, this facility will deliver an expansion of manufacturing capabilities and capacity, streamline processes, and further advance CRA’s vision of being the world’s fastest, most reliable, and quality provider of corrosion-resistant alloy tubulars. It will enhance CRA’s ability to offer customers creative solutions that are tailored to ever-changing industry and energy demands.

On a campus of more than 40 acres (161,874 m2) in size, the new facility’s first phase will house cold pilger mills, rotary and press straighteners, various computer numerical control machines and machine tools, band saws, and pipe inspection facilities.

“This project is the culmination of over a decade of planning,” says Cole Patchell, president of CRA PipeSearch. “We are excited to be able to offer our customers increased capacity, enhanced capabilities, and increased speed. The Brenham location is strategically positioned near the energy capital of the world, providing a strong workforce to support future growth. The community offers the values and quality of life that CRA places great significance on.”
