Luxfer-GTM Moves to New Efficient Facility in Port of Catoosa, Oklahoma
Luxfer-GTM Technologies, a joint venture between GTM Technologies and Luxfer Group, has moved into a new production facility in a modern, 2,000-acre industrial park situated on the Arkansas River near Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Port of Catoosa is the largest inland port in the US.
“This move allowed us to consolidate three separate manufacturing facilities under one roof, which has streamlined and significantly improved our operating efficiencies at a time when our product line is expanding and our sales are growing,” said Michael Koonce, president of Luxfer-GTM.
The new Luxfer-GTM facility features an array of modern material-handling equipment that can accommodate the company’s wide range of products from small pickup-towable trailers to 52-foot-long bulk gas transports. The new facility includes a welding and assembly shop, as well as high-pressure testing equipment and a research and development and test lab.
The facility is now producing products for Luxfer-GTM’s three primary markets: compressed natural gas, hydrogen fuel cells and industrial gases. Luxfer-GTM products are either gas transports or systems, all of which use lightweight Type-3 carbon composite cylinder technology manufactured by Luxfer Gas Cylinders.
