Tejas Tubular to Open Manufacturing Plant in Nebraska
Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman announced that Tejas Tubular Products Inc., a Texas-based manufacturer and supplier of OCTG (oil country tubular goods) for the petroleum industry, plans on opening a facility in Norfolk. The project will create approximately 200 new jobs. The planned 350,000-square-foot plant is scheduled to be completed by the third quarter of 2015. Tejas Tubular will apply for incentives under the Nebraska Advantage Tier six, which requires a minimum investment of $109 million and 50 jobs. Nucor Steel Bar Mill of Madison County will supply more than 150,000 tons of steel for products that include casing, drill pipe and line pipe for oil and gas production.
