K&B Machine moves to improve port access ///
Family-owned premium threader K&B Machine will celebrate its 40th birthday next year, in a new facility being developed, in part, to provide the Houma company closer access to Port Fourchon.
The company will move its headquarters, and threading and manufacturing operations, to a completely covered 200,000-sq-ft facility in nearby Schriever, La., off Highway 311, said Vice President of Operations Doug Hemstreet. He said plans call for the new facility to be open for business in the spring of 2014, coinciding with the company’s fourth decade of operation. He said K&B, which holds API and premium treading licenses, encompassing well over 100 different connections servicing a diversified client base, will also continue to use its birth home for full-length pipe threading operations.
