DynaEnergetics expands manufacturing facility in central Texas

11/28/2018

BLUM, Texas -- DynaEnergetics, a business of DMC Global, has opened new manufacturing, assembly and administrative facilities on its industrial campus in Blum, Texas. The facility spans 74,000-sq ft and significantly expands the production capacity of the company’s DynaStage well perforating system. 

The oil and gas industry’s only factory-assembled, performance-assured solution provides wireline companies and operators with a highly effective plug-and-go system that streamlines perforating operations, while alleviating labor costs, assembly time, maintenance and risk of misfire.

New production resources include six DynaStage assembly lines and multiple CNC turning centers for in-house manufacturing of tandem sub adaptors, a key component in the system. The company is also installing two new automated shaped-charge production lines that will more than triple the U.S. production capacity of the business’ advanced perforating charges. The company also has added administrative and sales offices, employee and customer training facilities, a gathering and dining space, commercial kitchen, employee locker rooms and a tornado shelter.

“Completion of these vertically integrated manufacturing facilities will enable us to more efficiently address growing customer demand for our factory-assembled perforating systems,” said Ian Grieves, president of DynaEnergetics. “We have sold more than 500,000 DynaStage units since the system was introduced approximately two years ago to North America’s onshore unconventional oil and gas industry. The systems have led to a step-change improvement in the efficiency, reliability and safety of our customers’ well completion programs.”

Grieves said the new facilities were designed to create a modern, inviting and highly efficient work environment for our growing workforce. “We have taken an important step toward our objective of becoming the employer of choice for this region. In addition to a world-class advanced manufacturing environment, we offer competitive pay and excellent benefits, and have incorporated a number of amenities designed to strengthen the employee experience.”

During 2018, the company has added more than 80 salaried and hourly employees at its facilities in Blum and nearby Whitney, Texas, an increase of approximately 70%.
