Compression, Torsion & Extension Springs Manufacturer Expands to New Complex

Katy Spring & Manufacturing one of Industry’s Larger Wire Formers

Houston, Texas (Marketwire) January 27, 2009 — Spring manufacturer Katy Spring & Mfg., Inc. will move from its current headquarters at 27711 Katy Freeway to a state-of-the art complex at the end of the first quarter of 2009. The new location, located five miles northwest at 3535 Schlipf Road in Katy, marks the fourth expansion in 10 years for the spring and wire form manufacturer.

The company, founded in 1999, specializes in custom manufacturing metal products including extension, torsion, flat and compression springs and wire forms. Last year Katy Spring & Mfg. added a new CNC wire forming machine which automatically produces custom wire forms up to 3/16th wire sizes. The addition of that technology makes Katy Spring & Mfg. one of the larger wire formers in the industry.

“We look forward to the move to our new headquarters,” said Katy Spring & Mfg. co-owner, Scott Pitney. “This is an exciting opportunity for our company and will improve our work flow tremendously.”

The company is highly regarded for its customer service, quality control and leading edge design assistance of springs, coils and wire products. Their national list of clients includes worldwide oil and gas industry giants, Baker Oil Tools and Cameron Drilling & Production Systems.

In 2008, the recently acquired Katy Heat added another vacuum furnace to expand its vacuum heat treating capacities.
In an economy mired in a recession, Katy Spring & Mfg., has continued to grow, citing a 12% increase in business in 2008. For the second year in a row, the company made the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America. In addition, they have applied for participation in the National Petrochemical & Refiners Association annual meeting which attracts over 1,700 executives representing refining, technology and chemical industries.
