WLS Drilling Products Inc. -- a company that offers a mining bit product line developed through study of drilling applications across the United States, Mexico and South Africa -- is building a new office/warehouse facility near Lake Conroe, Texas, located north of its headquarters in Houston. The 9,000-square-foot building is scheduled for completion some time this month.

A number of other changes have been taking place recently within the company ranks. WLS recently promoted James Ramey to mining sales manager U.S.A., making him responsible for mining bit sales in the United States. Ed Rinehart and Victor Parra also have garnered new titles: from now on, refer to Rinehart as the Eastern U.S.A. sales manager, and Parra as his counterpart, Western U.S.A. sales manager.
