Methods Machine Tools to open production, distribution center in Texas

April 13, 2022

Methods Machine Tools, a supplier of CNC machine tools and automation in North America, will open a state-of-the-art production and distribution center in Fort Worth, Texas.

Scheduled to open in February 2023, the 285,000 square-foot facility will serve as a flagship production, engineering and logistics hub from which Methods will continue to scale its North America business. Additionally, the site will host innovation programs conducted by Methods’ engineering, applications and automation experts, dedicated training areas, and a showcase technical center.

“This is a momentous day for Methods Machine Tools. Our Texas hub is a foundational piece of our national expansion strategy,” said Mark Wright, Methods president and CEO. “For the most sophisticated manufacturing across all verticals, our new facility will uniquely position us to better serve our customers throughout the greater Southwest, Pacific Coast regions, and Mexico.

“Our customers and our growing dealer network want more of our automation solutions and unmatched machine tools,” Wright continued. “With proximity to Houston’s deep water port and excellent access to highway systems, we will strengthen our national supply chain to rapidly fulfill our increasing demand.”

Methods expanded into Texas in late 2021 upon completing its acquisition of Houston- and Dallas-based Koch Machine Tool, shortly followed by recent expansion in the Midwest.

“While thinking about what this expansion means for Methods’ future, I first go back to my grandfather and our founder Clement McIver, Sr.,” said Methods owner and chairman Scott McIver. “Decades ago, he envisioned Texas one day becoming a central location to support our long-term growth. Today, on behalf of my family, I’m humbled and proud to see his vision become reality.”

Methods is hiring at its current Texas locations with more roles to be added before and after the Fort Worth opening, while hiring continues at its 11 other locations coast to coast.
