TIGG Corp. announced the acquisition of a new manufacturing facility on 40 acres in Heber Springs, Ark. The former Robert Bosch Tool Co. building will be the new home of TIGG’s tank and pressure vessel manufacturing plant.
TIGG purchased the 154,000-sq ft building with the intention of expanding its current manufacturing capabilities. Major modifications planned for the new facility include:
• Installation of a high bay crane area, crane structures and accessories and larger steel columns and foundations to accommodate 2- to 10-ton cranes with 30-ft underhook height, a 7.5-ton crane and several 5-ton cranes;
• Construction of a new vessel prep booth and paint spray booth to accommodate lining and finishing larger vessels; and
• Installation of 2- to 16- ft overhead doors with truck ramps for receiving and shipping materials and products.
TIGG’s manufacturing capabilities include manufacturing steel tanks and pressure vessels with diameters up to 14 ft in carbon steel and stainless steel, the company said. Additionally, it can provide a variety of linings and finish coatings such as high solids epoxy and vinyl esters. TIGG is fully certified for fabrication of steel tanks and pressure vessels in accordance with ASME Code Section VIII and holds ASME R and U stamps.
“We plan to complete the renovations and relocation by the middle of the year," said Georgiana Riley, president of TIGG Corp. "The new facility is part of our overall strategic plan to expand our capabilities and enable us to build much larger vessels which will position us well for our next phase of growth. In addition to manufacturing tanks and pressure vessels for our traditional water and air purification business we intend to provide tanks and pressure vessels for various other markets including air receivers and water storage tanks.”
