Houston-based Brawler Industries announced in a May press release that it has increased geomembrane fabrication capacity at its Midland and Pleasanton facilities in Texas.
The release stated that:
- Brawler’s new fabrication capacity now allows for up to 670 feet of fabrication with no butt-seams. • New multi-sealer technology is capable of producing 8,000-pound panels.
- Multi-sealer machines are currently being used at the company’s Midland and Pleasanton locations.
- Brawler now has more than 300 million square feet of fabrication capacity annually.
“By both manufacturing and fabricating in-house, we are able to closely monitor and ensure the quality of every liner we produce,” said Noel Aulds, quality assurance and quality control manager at Brawler. “We utilized the commercial geosynthetics testing laboratories accredited by the Geosynthetic Accreditation Institute, in addition to our own quality testing laboratory that allows us to test a sample from every roll of material we produce.”
The press release noted that the Brawler facility in Midland has been fabricating for 25 years, and recently installed a six-station multi-sealer allowing for faster production seaming and larger panels. The Pleasanton plant specializes in tank and drop-in liners for oil and gas, environmental, and agricultural applications. Combined, the two facilities have more than 300 million square feet of annual fabrication capacity.
The release also noted that in addition to its Midland and Pleasanton locations, Brawler operates a manufacturing plant in Houston and a third converting and distribution facility in Miles City, Mont.
