Bri-Steel Manufacturing Announces Thermal Pipe Expansion Mill Construction in the USA
19 January 2023
Bri-Steel Manufacturing (Integris International Inc.) a leading North American manufacture of large diameter seamless steel pipe is pleased to announce they are building their second North American Thermal Pipe Expansion mill (TPE) in Enid, Oklahoma.
The Facility and Operation
Bri-Steel has acquired the former GEFCO facility in Enid, Oklahoma. The facility is approximately 329,000 square feet with over 43 acres of land. This facility has enough infrastructure for future expansion and provides the company with multiple options to produce a hyper-efficient factory that can survive even the worst of times. The Bri-Steel team has completed the equipment layout and has started to procure the manufacturing equipment for the plant. The new equipment will be the latest technology to improve on our industry-leading quality products. Renovations and pre-commissioning work is expected to begin in the next few months using local industry and trades people. The plant will produce seamless pipe in sizes 12"-36" in wall thickness up to 3" thick. Bri-Steel will make Carbon Steel and Alloy Steel pipes. With the flexibility of this facility, we have plans to explore higher-yield piping in the coming year. Bri-Steel will produce to all major industry standards and will continue with their API Q1 quality system. Bri-Steel will apply, upon commissioning, to expand on their American Petroleum Institute (API) Monogram program to include the Enid location. The company will employ between 50 and 100 people once in full production. Hiring shall begin in Q3, and production should start late Q4.
"We have had such positive feedback from the people in Enid, and the State officials have been excellent to deal with. We are excited to bring back 12" and larger seamless pipe manufacturing to the USA and to fill the void left behind by US Steel. This is a true Southern Expansion!" Neil Rasmussen - President
