Tool-Flo Consolidates Operations in New Houston Facility
Tool-Flo has doubled its manufacturing capacity with a new facility intended to increase product developments.
Tool-Flo (Houston, Texas), a member of the IMC Group, has consolidated its sales, engineering and manufacturing operations into an 88,000 square-foot facility. The site doubles the company’s current manufacturing capacity and is expected to improve production, lead times, quality and service. The facility is also expected to improve communication between sales, product engineering and manufacturing.
The move is intended to increase development of custom solutions, facilitate technological advances and enhance the range of services provided to customers.
Tool-Flo says the expansion is a reflection of its investments into the design, development and engineering of its products.
