Luxfer-GTM Technologies, a joint venture between GTM Technologies and Luxfer Group, has moved into a new production facility in a modern, 2,000-acre industrial park. Situated on the Arkansas River near Tulsa, Okla., the Port of Catoosa is the largest inland port in the U.S. The facility is now producing products for Luxfer-GTM’s three primary markets: CNG, hydrogen fuel cells and industrial gases. The products are either gas transports or systems, all of which use lightweight Type-3 carbon composite cylinder technology manufactured by Luxfer Gas Cylinders.
Michael Koonce, president of Luxfer-GTM, said: “This move allowed us to consolidate three separate manufacturing facilities under one roof, which has streamlined and significantly improved our operating efficiencies at a time when our product line is expanding and our sales are growing.”
The new Luxfer-GTM facility features an array of modern material-handling equipment that can accommodate the company’s wide range of products from small pickup-towable trailers to 52-foot-long bulk gas transports. The facility includes a welding and assembly shop, high-pressure testing equipment and a research and development and test lab, as well as high-pressure filling capabilities for the company’s growing line of hydrogen products.
The products manufactured at the facility also include the small G-Pak™ gas transports, which fit in the back of a pickup truck, that are used for refueling hydrogen and CNG vehicles and drones.
