Texas manufacturer to expand business in Norfolk, Neb.


LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- A Texas-based manufacturer is expanding its operations into Norfolk, bringing an estimated 200 jobs to the area.

Tejas Tubular Products Inc. is expected to begin construction on a new facility later this year, with a target completion date in 2015. Gov. Dave Heineman announced the project on Thursday.

Nucor Steel Bar Mill of Madison County will provide more than 150,000 tons of steel products for the pipeline company, including casing, drill pipe and line pipe for oil and gas production.

Tejas Tubular will apply for incentives under the Nebraska Advantage Act, with a required minimum investment of $109 million and 50 new jobs. The state is contributing $1.4 million for the project, and Norfolk has earmarked $3.6 million.
