SUDBURY, MA—Methods Machine Tools, a supplier of automation and CNC machine tools, says it will open a production and distribution center in Fort Worth, Texas in February 2023.

The 285,000 square-foot facility will serve as a flagship production, engineering, and logistics hub for Methods Machine Tools. In addition, the site will host innovation programs conducted by Methods’ engineering, applications, and automation experts, dedicated training areas, and a showcase technical center.

“Our Texas hub is a foundational piece of our national expansion strategy,” says 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. With proximity to Houston’s deepwater port and excellent access to highways 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. The company 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.

“Decades ago, my grandfather and our founder Clement McIver Sr., envisioned Texas one day becoming a central location to support our long-term growth," says Methods owner and Chairman Scott McIver. "Today, I’m humbled and proud to see his vision become reality.”
