Falcon Steel America (FSA) recently acquired a 226,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Conroe, Texas. The addition of the new plant will more than double the company's manufacturing capacity for high-voltage, steel-lattice towers and commercial galvanizing and dulling operations.

FSA anticipates hiring 150 local skilled and unskilled workers, including quality assurance and quality control inspectors, welders, fitters, machine operators and truck drivers in the near term.

At the new facility, the company will first establish its fabrication line, followed by its galvanizing line. Within the first year of operations, FSA will expand production to monopoles.

"We see robust growth opportunities on the horizon, and our expansion into Conroe allows us to significantly increase our production, and shrink turnaround time between fabrication and delivery for our customers," said Jim Taylor, chief executive officer. "Further, our new world-class facility establishes a strategic foothold for our company in the Greater Houston area. We look forward to being an active community partner in Conroe and Montgomery County and continuing to build upon our 'buy American, hire American' initiatives."

A leading designer, engineer and fabricator of American-made steel structures, FSA builds and galvanizes steel monopoles and substations, and is the only fabricator of high-voltage, steel-lattice towers in the United States.
