CST announces Global Manufacturing Center of Excellence, consolidation plan
KANSAS CITY, MO — CST Industries announced that it plans to transform its global covers manufacturing footprint by creating a Global Manufacturing Center of Excellence in its existing Conroe, TX, facility. The covers that will be manufactured there can be used in various applications, including biomass storage, biofuel storage and processing, and others. The company will invest in equipment and personnel at the Conroe facility and will transfer manufacturing equipment from the Rincon, GA, location, which produces aluminum domes and covers. The company plans to consolidate cover production and increase capacity at the Conroe facility and cease operation in Rincon. The 34 affected workers at the Rincon facility will receive separation pay and other benefits from CST to help with the transition. CST Industries owns CST Covers, CST Storage, and Vulcan Tanks and supplies storage tanks and covers to various industries.
