Pittsburgh, Pa.-based L.B. Foster Co. has completed the relocation of its Threaded Products water well group from Houston to a new facility in Magnolia, Texas. The move expands L.B. Foster's ability to supply agricultural, municipal and industrial customers with tubular products.

The Magnolia plant has extended operating hours to increase production capacity to accommodate the addition of new Oil Country Tubular Goods threading services. The new facility is strategically located adjacent to L.B. Foster's joint venture operation, LB Pipe & Coupling Products LLC. "It will now allow us to coordinate product inflow and outflow  more efficiently with LB Pipe to assure our customers receive timely orders of column pipe," says Gary Foerster, general manager sales, L.B. Foster Tubular Products.

The new Magnolia site totals 40 acres, and accommodates product storage and future growth. The company has moved its experienced team to the new plant north of Houston, and will be hiring additional employees. The new facility is located at 21270 FM 1488 in Magnolia, Texas.
