HOUSTON (JULY 8, 2015) – Mobil Steel International, Inc. achieved its highest half-year production in the past decade fabricating steel for a diverse portfolio of projects. The Houston-based company fabricated steel on projects along the Houston Ship Channel, in West Texas, Louisiana and Colorado supporting infrastructure development in oil and natural gas shale plays, as well as expansion of refining and chemical facilities.
According to President and CEO Leonard A. Bedell, Mobil Steel fabricated steel to build a seamless pipe manufacturing facility, a CO2 capture facility, and crude oil gathering systems and pipeline projects in Texas, Louisiana and Colorado. The Company fabricated steel for a $2 billion fertilizer plant expansion in Louisiana. Mobil Steel also fabricated steel for a major bank in the Greater Conroe region, as well as other commercial buildings in Greater Houston.
“We have had an interesting assortment of projects across the spectrum of exploration, production and manufacturing industries, as well as the commercial building industry,” said Bedell. “It gives me a great sense of pride that Mobil Steel is fabricating steel that helps drilling and exploration companies find and collect affordable oil and gas – providing U.S. energy security.”
“Due to affordable and abundant natural gas supplies, we are fabricating steel for new refining, chemical and processing plants, as well as expansions of existing petrochemical facilities. This increase in production facilities is contributing to America’s manufacturing renaissance, and is driving the economic recovery.” Bedell said.
Bedell attributes the current production record to meeting market demand with a focus on customer service and quality performance. Mobil Steel is one of only a dozen Houston steel fabrication facilities to earn quality certification from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). Earlier this year, Mobil Steel earned its ninth consecutive AISC quality certification.
In addition to providing quality steel production that meets customers’ schedules, Mobil Steel has capacity to handle multiple projects at the same time. The steel fabricator’s facility on South Wayside Drive in Houston has 80,000 square feet of space, including six fabrication bays that provide flexibility to handle an assortment of diverse projects, according to Bedell.
