Cortec (Houma, La.; www.uscortec.com), a leading manufacturer of high quality API chokes, valves and manifolds, and Louisiana Economic Development (LED) have announced a $2.5 million expansion of Cortec’s industrial coatings facility in Port Allen, La.

Cortec and LED began working on the proposed expansion in March 2018, which will be completed by Q2 2019. The expansion will allow Cortec to increase its space, equipment and capabilities from its existing operations and expand further into specialized coatings to enhance the performance and lifespan of equipment. Cortec will create four new jobs and seven indirect jobs with the Port Allen expansion.

Founded in January 2004, Cortec is a leading manufacturer of high quality valves and flow line equipment for production, drilling and service applications in the global oil and gas industry. CORTEC is comprised of two manufacturing divisions, CORTEC Fluid Control (CFC) and CORTEC Manifold Systems (CMS). These main manufacturing centers are located in Houma and Port Allen, Louisiana, ideally positioned to service the oil and gas industry. CORTEC designs, engineers, manufactures, assembles and tests its products in Louisiana, USA, under API 6A and 16C licenses and is a registered ISO 9001 and API Q1 manufacturer.
