Philip Cornes Becomes TW Metals in Houston
 
After opening its first U.S. metals service center in Houston a little more than a year ago, U.K.-based Philip Cornes will begin doing business out of that facility as TW Metals. The change becomes effective Nov. 1.

Philip Cornes is a 50-year-old company specializing in distribution and processing of nickel alloy products to the specialty metals market worldwide, and has long been a division of Exton, Pa.-based TW Metals. The company had not operated in the U.S. until last year, when it began offering nickel alloy plate, sheet, bar, pipe and tubing in grades 330, 400, 600, 625, 800 and 825 at the Houston facility. It also offers processing services, including high-definition plasma, shearing, and saw cutting for pipe and tube.

"Having established a unique product line in Houston, composed of products not currently offered by TW Metals’ other 27 facilities, it made sense for the Philip Cornes operation to be folded into the larger company," says Jack Elrod, president of TW Metals. "In doing so, the Houston facility can take advantage of TW Metals’ broader name recognition to grow its business, while TW Metals can benefit by having an even more diverse inventory of products to offer new and existing customers".

Along with the name change, the Houston facility’s computer system is being converted to that of TW Metals, allowing all of the company’s other branch operations to have quick and easy access to the expanded product line. Those products have also been added to TW Metals' website inventory at www.twmetals.com.

Kim Shelton-Brown, a 25-year veteran of the metals industry, will continue to serve as branch manager of the ISO-registered Houston facility.
