Welded Tubes has announced the opening of a new 55,000 square foot facility in Monterrey, Mexico. The new facility will begin operations in early 2024 with a focus on small-diameter, tight tolerance tubing for the automotive industry, a specialty of the Ohio based manufacturer. “Our customers are increasing their presence in Mexico and have asked us to continue to support their expansion efforts and their commitment to the OEM’s.” Says Joe Frandanisa, president of Welded Tubes Inc. “We are listening to our customer’s needs, and our expansion in Monterey will allow us to grow and strengthen our relationships with them.”
The facility is breaking ground on the large Steel Warehouse campus in Monterrey. Steel Warehouse is the sister company of Lock Joint Tube (LJT), the parent company of Welded Tubes. This expansion will strengthen the supply chain of Welded Tubes and their customers. This expansion will take LJT’s combined company presence to six locations and be the first international presence for the tubers. The new facility has plans to expand to include LJT’s capability range after its first several years in operation.
Kevin Marks, President, Lock Joint Tube is looking forward to the new facility becoming operational. “With the support of Steel Warehouse Mexico, we are expanding into Mexico with a ton of confidence. I anticipate more exciting news in Mexico in the years to come.” Says Kevin.
