Construction on the facility began in September 2010 and was completed on time and on budget. The facility has already booked $17 million in new orders.

Linton in a prepared statement.  “Our goal is provide the highest level of quality and engineering expertise to support our customers in the refining and petrochemical industries.  This facility provides them with continued improvement in technology, processes and quality while providing the safest work environment available.” 

The new facility covers over 12 acres of property and includes a 118,000-square-foot manufacturing area.  Key features include one of the largest, fully enclosed blasting and paint facilities in the U.S., refractory installation, superior material handling and convenient barge transportation. The facility creates about 100 jobs, from engineering positions to skilled welders and fitters. Curtiss-Wright Flow Control currently employs 255 employees in the Houston area.
