RTLC Industries Inc. has formed a new subsidiary, RTLC Windtowers Inc. RTLC Industries, through its subsidiary RTLC Piping Products Inc., has been a supplier of large-diameter pipe, specials and fittings to the water and wastewater industry since 1995.

According to Billy Terrell, RTLC president and CEO, "our management team will bring over 100 combined years of large-diameter tubular structures manufacturing experience to this exciting industry. Our experience in the fabrication, welding, coating and lining of hundreds of miles of large OD pipe will allow us to offer a high-quality product to our customers on time and at very competitive prices."

RTLC will begin construction of its new plant soon on 150 rail-served acres it has acquired in McGregor, Texas. Phase I of the facility will go online this year with an additional capacity to build 800 towers coming online in 2009.

"This new facility will feature the latest technology in cutting, rolling, welding and coating operations, along with specialized equipment of our own design that we've developed over the years," says Terrell. "We hope to become a solid supplier to our wind tower customers for many years to come."
