As our long-time customers know, after many years on Long Drive here in Houston, PT&P purchased 7.2 acres on Holmes Road in Houston, Texas in the summer of 1987. After upgrading the electrical systems, PT&P and Sweco Fab, Inc., PT&P’s ASME code fabricated shop, relocated to this new facility. Since that time, PT&P has continued to expand
and improve its work space at the Holmes Road facility:
