TWB to Open New Kentucky Facility

TWB Company, the tailor welded blanking joint venture operated by Worthington Industries, plans to open a new facility in Glasgow, Ky. The company will lease a 12,000-square-foot plant from Fortis Manufacturing and begin production in the first quarter of 2016.

“This expansion is evidence of the strength of the relationships we have with our customers, as well as the increased demand for our tailor welded products,” says Geoff Gilmore, president of Worthington Industries’ Steel Processing business. “This location will increase efficiencies in the supply chain and will help put stronger, lighter trucks on the road.”

The Kentucky TWB facility will laser weld different types of high-strength grade steel to create material used for heavy-duty truck rail assemblies that are stronger and lighter with improved crash performance, the company claims. The material will be stamped and assembled at a Tier 1 supplier before being used in Ford F-250 and F-350 pickup trucks.

“Our innovative laser welded blank offering continues to expand into new vehicle parts like these heavy-gauge truck rail assemblies,” says Ivan Meltzer, president of TWB Company. “We look to continue this trend as we grow our capabilities and expand the application of our products, helping our customers find ways to reduce the weight of vehicles while increasing strength.”
