The STI Group-  Port Arthur Processing Center began operations in 2006 to provide additional steel fabrication capacity. In 2007, in order to efficiently process plate and structural steel, this facility was converted to the centralized material processing center for STI Group-Fabrication.

Today, STI-Port Arthur provides custom-kitted processed material for its internal fabrication facilities as well as external customers. Well-trained, dedicated people using modern, well-maintained equipment have earned us the enviable reputation for quality and responsiveness. While our craftspeople are key to continued customer loyalty, The STI Group-Port Arthur Processing Center complements them by employing high state-of-the-art technology equipment.

We utilize AutoCAD with SSDCP as well as 3D modeling software to meet customer design requirements. Using SDS/2 and TEKLA, we have the ability to create shop drawings of unprecedented accuracy. Our CAD/CAM system is made available to customers, and our staff technicians can assist with the design and modification of customer drawings.

In addition, our CAD system can accept customer DXF files and feed them directly into our computerized multi-torch cutting machinery for accuracy and replication. Both quality assurance and simplicity of record keeping are enhanced. The 3D modeling software generates CNC files which are uploaded to our state-of-the-art Peddinghaus processing machinery.

Executing Lean Manufacturing processes, we are able to consistently deliver a quality product at a reduced cost to our customer. With implementation of our FabTrol MRP system, we are able to accurately track projects through 8 key areas from the original bid until the final shipment to the customer. With our processing teamwork you will enjoy all the benefits of one-stop shopping. We can cut, slit, form, shape, and hold the product until you need it.
