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, Okla., at the Port of Catoosa.
Michael Koonce, president of Luxfer-GTM, said, “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.”
The new facility includes a welding and assembly shop, high-pressure testing equipment and a research and development test lab, as well as high-pressure filling capabilities for the company’s growing line of hydrogen (H2) products.
The facility is now producing products for Luxfer-GTM’s three primary markets: compressed natural gas (CNG), H2 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.
“Thanks to our new facility, we now have the capacity not only to build these existing products, but also to keep adding innovative new products to our line,” Koonce added.
