THE COMPANY’S FIRST DELIVERY WILL MARK THE REVIVAL OF THE RAIL SPUR FOR SYLVANIA INDUSTRIAL PARK
FORT WORTH, TX – Andes Coil Processors, a leader in the steel processing and slitting industry, today announced its expansion to Sylvania Industrial Park in Fort Worth, Texas. Sylvania Industrial Park, formerly the site of the American Manufacturing of Texas plant, was once a major manufacturing hub with thousands of workers producing billets and oil pump jacks. The manufacturing facility brings 30 to 50 new jobs and a $5M capital investment to Fort Worth.
The company worked closely with CanTex Capital in the site selection process.
“We are excited about our expansion into Fort Worth, it feels like we are coming home. Andes Coil Processors has experienced significant growth in the past 12 years in Lewisville, Dallas and Grand Prairie, and Fort Worth now adds significantly to that continued growth. Fort Worth offered the ease of access (rail and interstate roadways), a strong workforce, and quality of life we wanted for our team members. We can’t wait to get to work. We couldn’t be happier with our partnership with CanTex in the Sylvania Industrial complex, and with Fort Worth & Western Railroad - it’s been great to work with them during this process,” said Howard Pena, President of Andes Coil Processors.
“Because of local partners like the Fort Worth Chamber and the Fort Worth and Western Railroad, we’ve been able to bring Andes Coil to Fort Worth.” said Sam Cheema, COO of CanTex Capital, “Rail-served properties are becoming harder and harder to come by, and FWWR worked diligently to make this deal happen. In addition to Andes, our team is very excited with all of the improvements at Sylvania Industrial Park. The manufacturing demand has been incredible and we’re seeing a lot of companies relocating to Fort Worth.”
