Manoir Industries and Howell Industries are officializing their industrial partnership to propose local fabrication and assembly for their North American clients at the occasion of an opening ceremony at Howell premises. The special day will include a technical session focused on Manaurites® high alloy developments and on the Manoir latest technology services, and a visit of the Howell facilities and associated equipment.
Under this partnership, Howell Industries has been certified according to Manoir quality standards for its assemblies and fabrication of Manaurite® high alloy tubes, fittings and ancillary equipment for ethylene, hydrogen and direct reduction of iron furnaces.
Howell Industries has been established in 1965 and has developed key competencies for the welding of high alloys, in particular for the fabrication of furnace components such as ethylene coils. The facility, with nearly 50 employees and over 50,000 sq.ft under roof of shop space, is located in Sulfur, LA, between Houston and New Orleans.
Since Manoir Industries and Howell Industries started their partnership, several audits by key US gulf coast customers took place and were found satisfactory. Among those customers, Exxon Mobil, Dow Chemical, BASF and Sasoil have shown significant interest in local fabrication.
The Howell / Manoir partnership aims at warrantying Manoir’s best quality standards while reducing overall project costs by shipping, either from Manoir France or Manoir China, loose components in more compact crates. Subsequent fabrication and final testing take place at Howell Industries. An additional benefit for local clients is the possibility to inspect the assemblies at his doorstep rather than traveling to any Manoir facilities for final inspections.
Manoir Industries, an international metal processing casting and forging group, develops proprietary alloys and manufactures high performance metal components molded and forged for the petrochemical, nuclear, oil extraction, civil engineering, energy, defense and construction markets. The solid expertise reputation has driven sustainable position through the worldwide industry and its customers.
