Methods Machine Tools Expands with New Texas Production and Distribution Site
285,000 sq. ft. facility will double production capacity upon opening
Methods Machine Tools, the foremost supplier of high-quality, high-precision CNC machine tools and automation in North America, will open a state-of-the-art production and distribution center in Fort Worth, Texas.
Scheduled to open in February, 2023, the 285,000 square-foot facility will serve as a flagship production, engineering, and logistics hub from which Methods will continue to aggressively scale its North America business. Additionally, the site will host leading-edge innovation programs conducted by Methods’ engineering, applications, and automation experts, dedicated training areas, and a showcase technical center.
“This is a momentous day for Methods Machine Tools. Our Texas hub is a foundational piece of our national expansion strategy,” said Mark Wright, Methods President and CEO. “For the most sophisticated manufacturing across all verticals, our new facility will uniquely position us to better serve our customers throughout the greater Southwest, Pacific Coast regions, and Mexico.
“Our customers and our growing dealer network want more of our automation solutions and unmatched machine tools,” Wright continued. “With proximity to Houston’s deep water port and excellent access to highways systems, we will strengthen our national supply chain to rapidly fulfill our increasing demand.”
“While thinking about what this expansion means for Methods’ future, I first go back to my grandfather and our founder Clement McIver, Sr.,” said Methods Owner and Chairman Scott McIver. “Decades ago, he envisioned Texas one day becoming a central location to support our long-term growth. Today, on behalf of my family, I’m humbled and proud to see his vision become reality.”
Methods is hiring at its current Texas locations with more roles to be added before and after the Fort Worth opening, while hiring continues at its 11 other locations coast to coast.
