Houston, Texas (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
Trinity Steel Fabricators, Inc. announced today that it acquired Triton Vessel Manufacture of Houston, Texas, an ASME pressure vessel fabrication business. The purchase expands Trinity Steel's service offering to now include vessel fabrication. The new division will produce pressure vessels, separators, reactors, columns and towers for the upstream and downstream oil & gas and chemical industries.
“The success of Trinity Steel revolves around operational excellence in metal fabrication. With the acquisition of Triton Vessel Manufacture, we can now offer the fabrication of vessels at Trinity process standards to our customers,” said Bill Moran, CEO of Trinity Steel Fabricators.
Brothers, Jason and James Lowry, the owners of Triton Vessel Manufacture, will stay on after the acquisition and lead the new vessel division of Trinity Steel. Jason and James founded the company in 2011 after almost 20 years in the vessel fabrication, packaging and inspection industries.
“Combining forces with Trinity Steel allows us to make the investments in facilities and equipment to expand our vessel production capacity to better serve our customers,” said Jason Lowry, VP of Vessel Operations at Trinity Steel.
The new division’s current capacity can produce ASME Section VIII Div. 1 vessels of various configurations with facility-driven fabrication limits of 30 tons weight and 12 feet in diameter. With the planned capital investment, the vessel size capabilities will more than double in the coming year. The new vessel division will target customers located in North America. From day one, the division will carry vessel certifications of AMSE “U” stamp Certificate of Authorization as well as a NBIC “R” stamp Certificate of Authorization.
