Werts Welding & Tank Service Inc, a leading US supplier of tank trailer parts, turned westward to Billings MT to open its seventh parts sales and distribution facility. The facility manager is Andy Ricci.
Booming oilfield activity certainly was a factor in the decision to open a Billings location, according to Bruce Cornelius, Werts Welding parts and sales manager. “The oil and gas production activities in Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota are generating a lot of tank truck business,” he says. “We're seeing a lot of demand for pumps, crude oil valves, and hoses with quick-couple fittings. We had been considering a move west for quite awhile, and this seemed like the perfect time.”
The 7,500-sq-ft facility has three employees and carriers and extensive parts inventory. The branch is located at 103 Sugar Ave, Billings MT 59101. The local phone number is 409-259-7563.
The new Billings branch joins six others in the Werts Welding system in Wood River IL, San Antonio TX, Birmingham AL, Atlanta GA, Tampa FL, and Des Moines IA.
