Tyler Pipe held a grand opening celebration at their new transload facility Monday October 30, 2023, on the 7.6 acres they purchased from Henderson Economic Development Corporation (HEDCO) located at Industrial Drive in the Henderson, Texas Industrial Park.
“The facility is a major investment in the future of Tyler Pipe. This facility will transload raw materials by rail needed to manufacture pipe and fittings that are distributed all over the United States. The facility will also load finished product by rail to our three distribution centers servicing the west and east coast. Tyler Pipe is proud of our partnership with the city of Henderson,” said Joseph Holzbauer, General Manager of Tyler Pipe.
Representatives from Tyler Pipe, Blacklands Railroad and Rusk County Rail District along with Mayor Buzz Fullen, Rusk County Judge Joel Hale, HEDCO Executive Director John Clary and several of the HEDCO Board members joined a host of other dignitaries and guest for this special event.
“We are happy to welcome Tyler Pipe to the industrial community in Henderson. Tyler Pipe will be utilizing the rail for inbound and outbound shipping. Tyler Pipe’s new transload yard in Henderson Industrial Park will facilitate the growth of our industrial rail footprint in east Texas. Henderson is one of very few locations along the East Texas I-20 corridor that has rail access,” Clary said.
