Forged Components Inc. (FCI) of Humble, Texas, announced the acquisition of Western of Texas Forge & Flange Co. (WTFF) in the fourth quarter of 2019. WTFF manufactures pipe flanges and forgings to standard and custom sizes to the oil and gas exploration and production, oil refining and processing, petrochemical, chemical, and power-generation industries. Kountze, Texas-based WTFF will continue to operate under its current name.

According to FCI, Western of Texas Forge & Flange Co. is particularly a good fit because FCI does not manufacture commodity flanges, and WTFF expands FCI’s forging capabilities with the addition of 4,000, 8,000- and 12,000-pound hammers.
