CONROE, Texas – Falcon Steel America, a manufacturer of high-voltage transmission tower and other steel structures, acquired a 226,000-SF manufacturing facility in Conroe, north of Houston.
The addition of the new plant, located on 25 acres at 3575 Pollok Drive, will more than double the Fort Worth-based company’s manufacturing capacity.
Falcon Steel America, which is remodeling the plant, expects to hire 150 skilled and unskilled workers, including quality assurance and quality control inspectors, welders, fitters, machine operators and truck drivers in the near term.
“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.”
