Hydratight, a manufacturer of mechanical pipeline connectors and hydraulic bolt tightening tools, has moved its Houston operations to Deer Park, Texas, because of its expansion in the region.

"We have come a very long way in the two years since the acquisition of Hydratight by Actuant," says Bob Boychuk, Hydratight's business leader for America. "We have improved and broadened the range of torquing and tensioning products and services we offer and we have been able to increase and expand our inventory levels, and will continue to do so."

According to the company, its DL Ricci pipe cutting and machining rental services will operate from the new facility at 1102 Hall Court.
