The expansion will allow Weir SPM to install new machinery for increased pump, fluid end and flow manufacturing capacity.
The project includes the purchase of 12.7 acres adjacent to the current location for a dedicated Fort Worth Service Centre to provide quick response times for major pump overhaul. Warehouses, an assembly and engineering office, pipe shop, pump machine shop, a swivel manufacturing facility and a service centre will also be built. New and renovated offices will accommodate recently hired management and engineering staff. The site also includes land for future expansion.
Construction is underway and should be completed by the third quarter of 2012.
