The Ellwood Closed Die Group (ECDG) completed construction of its climate-controlled close-tolerance finish machining complex at its Ellwood Texas Forge Navasota (ETFN) facility. The new operation concludes a year-long initiative to integrate operations of the former Ellwood Texas Forge and Machine with ETFN to improve customer solutions and to better leverage engineering and management resources. Capabilities include turning, milling, drilling, boring and single-point threading operations, with up to 14,000 square feet serviced by several overhead bridge cranes.

The facility includes an instrument-duty compressed air system and lab-quality environmental controls to ensure top-notch quality within a modern, clean and safe working environment.

“This is the next step in our evolution to become a complete forging solutions provider to our customers,” said ETFN President Valli Senthilnathan.
