Trinity Steel Fabricators Inc. is pleased to announce their corporate headquarters is returning to Trinity as of July 2018. The company was founded in 1976 by Roy E Karnes in Trinity Texas and was headquartered in Trinity until the fall of 2013 when it moved to Houston, Texas. Trinity Steel has historically maintained three plants, most recently two in Trinity and one located in Tomball. The Tomball facility will also be closing so that the company can consolidate all of their capacity to two centralized locations in Trinity. The move has been part of Trinity’s “long-term strategy to reduce our overall operating costs and consolidate our fabrication capacity to Trinity,” President & CEO Richard Neal said.
In 2014 Trinity acquired United Steel Fabricators, now known as the Trinity South plant, and the company invested in several pieces of state of the art CNC equipment reconfigured process flows and added additional roofline to the facility. Now with the closure of the Tomball plant, Trinity is in the midst of a second expansion of their Trinity South plant, moving additional CNC automated equipment from their Tomball plant and adding more roofline to accommodate the additional fabrication capacity.
With the additional capacity comes the need for a growing labor force and Trinity is currently accepting applications for day and night shifts. Their openings include positions for welders, fitters, CNC operators, maintenance and entry-level positions with the opportunity for on the job training as the company prefers to promote from within. Trinity Steel participates in the E- verify program, requires drug and background testing as a prerequisite for employment.
While Trinity Steel has always maintained a presence in Trinity since their founding in 1976 Mickey Swor, Vice President of Project Management states “We are excited about continuing to grow the company and be a bigger contributor to the local economy.”
