New Industries, Inc. has announced the completion of the expansion of its Morgan City piping fabrication shop. The expansion adds an additional 10,000 square feet of useable space, two additional overhead cranes, and a new automatic Submerged Arc welding system.

The expansion doubles the Company's available capacity for piping fabrication and is the response of New Industries to a growing volume of customer orders for subsea piping components.
