Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:FET) is pleased to announce the opening of a 10,000 square feet addition to its state-of-the-art facility in Elmore City, Oklahoma. This Production Equipment facility expansion will increase the plant to 70,000 square feet of manufacturing space located on over 50 acres. The expansion of the manufacturing capabilities will mean more efficient production times on larger size pressure vessels. Gauthier Pierozak, Plant Manager, said, “We have increased our manufacturing capability in Elmore City significantly over the last several years as we have responded to growth in customer demand. This latest expansion will allow us to produce larger size equipment for the unconventional shale markets under development throughout the United States.”
The Grand Opening will be held on September 11, 2013, with expected guests including Lieutenant Governor Todd Lamb, Senator Susan Paddack, Oklahoma Representative Lisa Billy and other local dignitaries. Since first expanding in 2011, this facility has had a significant impact on the local economy.
