Rancho Cordova-based Tri Tool Inc., a manufacturer of precision portable machine tools and a provider of on-site construction services, announced Tuesday that it will open a new 15,000-square-foot office and warehouse in Texas to better serve the offshore/onshore pipeline oil and gas industries in the Gulf of Mexico region.
Grand opening festivities for the Houston facility are set for May 7.
Jerri Wernette, Tri Tool’s executive vice president, noted that the company has had a presence in Houston for years, but “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 and gas customers.”
Tri Tool Inc. was established in 1972 to respond to challenges facing industries involved in preparing and welding pipe during activities such as building power plants in North America. In spring 2007, Tri Tool acquired a 128,000-square-foot facility at 3041 Sunrise Blvd. in Rancho Cordova to serve as its corporate office and main manufacturing plant.
