Precision-Machine Parts Manufacturer and Distributor Expands In Pflugerville
PT Products & Services, Inc., to construct 12,500-square-foot facility to allow for growth into aerospace and military markets; company aims to achieve quality control certifications by fall.
PFLUGERVILLE, Texas—The Pflugerville Community Development Corporation (PCDC) today announced that longtime Pflugerville business PT Products & Services, Inc. will soon begin construction on a new 12,500-square foot, two-story building for its new headquarters, which will house the company’s more than $1 million in machinery and equipment, office space, and allow room for continued growth and the capability to serve new markets, including aerospace and military.
PT Products manufactures titanium, aluminum and plastic precision machine parts for the medical, oil and gas, and high technology industries. The company is also a distributor of high- tech valves and cylinders for OEM manufacturing facilities such as AMD, IBM and Motorola.
President and Owner George Howard said PT Products is expected to achieve ISO 9001:2008 and AS 9100C certifications this fall, which will enable the company to expand its target market to include the military and aerospace industries.
“We expect to see significant growth because we have opened up a new market for PT Products to now be able to serve military and aerospace customers worldwide with the certifications we will soon have in place,” Howard said. “We appreciate the continued support from the City of Pflugerville and the economic development corporation, which has helped enable our business to succeed, prosper and grow in Pflugerville.”
The new building is expected to be complete by the end of the year and will be located on a 1- acre tract adjacent to the company’s existing operations in Commercial Park at 20105 Algreg St. in Pflugerville near the intersection of FM 685 and Rowe Lane. Once PT Products moves into the new building, Howard plans to lease out the two approximately 5,000-square-foot buildings (one industrial and one office flex).
In late June, the Pflugerville City Council and PCDC Board of Directors approved a $97,500 incentive agreement to reimburse PT Products for development costs and moving expenses, and to pay the company $1,500 per new job created up to 15 jobs in Pflugerville within three years. As part of the agreement, construction of the facility must be completed within one year and the company must operate at this headquarters location for at least five years.
“We often spotlight the new businesses that we have brought to Pflugerville, but it is just as important to support and help our existing businesses thrive and grow,” said PCDC Executive Director Floyd Akers. “PT Products is a prime example of a well-established, successful business expanding, evolving and communicating needs to us so that we are able to support them.”
PT Products has 18 employees and is a veteran-owned business founded by Howard in 1988. Howard’s son, Ben, is vice president of operations and is responsible for managing the process to achieve ISO 9001:2008 and AS 9100C certifications.
