Manufacturing Facility:

Manufacturing Facility

The Broach Manufacturing Plant was designed and built exclusively for the construction of Process Heat Equipment. Located at 8199 East 44th Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma on a 16 acre tract, our 84,000 square foot assembly plant is fully covered by sixteen 50’ overhead bridge cranes with 22’-6” under hook.

Our facility has three private rail spurs and a 440’ internal rail bay for inside loading, painting, tie-down and final assembly for shipment. Each of the 21 final assembly bays open through individual 15’ wide by 22’ high doors to our direct car loading system.

All manufacturing functions are performed under one roof, in environmentally controlled conditions, so that weather is not a factor in production or scheduling.  Consistent thermostatically controlled temperatures and uniform mercury vapor lighting are maintained throughout to provide year-round control of welding and refractory quality.

Strict ASME and AWS quality control programs ensure that each unit meets the highest standards of craftsmanship, performance and dependability. We are fully qualified to weld all materials, ranging from low-temperature steels for arctic and cryogenic applications through low alloy, intermediate alloy, stainless steel and the most exotic high temperature alloys. Our plant is renowned for the finest craftsmanship in the industry.

Our manufacturing facilities also include 6,400 square feet of office space for production management and quality control, in addition to 10,200 square feet of warehouse space. A 1,500 square foot fully equipped instrument and electrical shop gives us the in-house capability to build control systems and fuel trains for any class or to any size.

Single Source Responsibility, without the use of subcontractors, has allowed The G.C. Broach Company to demonstrate our unique capability to design and manufacture replacement equipment on an emergency basis faster and more efficiently than any other organization.
