ABILENE, TX, November 3, 2011: Lauren Engineers & Constructors (Lauren) recently finalized the purchase of property near Bynum, Montana which will be used as a modular construction facility.

The new plant will work in conjunction with Lauren’s fabrication facility in Abilene, Texas to construct and assemble modular equipment for shipment to Western Canada and beyond. The modular components will be fabricated in Abilene, TX, and other locations, and then shipped to the Montana facility for assembly and transport.

“Lauren is excited about this expansion of our business into Montana,” said Mike Breed, Lauren Vice President. “We look forward to partnering with the local community to see that this plant has a positive impact on the residents of Bynum and the rest of the region. This extension of our capabilities will allow us to offer attractive modularization options for our customers in western Canada and other parts of Canada and the northern United States.”

Lauren has extensive experience fabricating and assembling large modules at the company’s fabrication facility in Abilene, TX. Building upon this experience, the Bynum facility will allow Lauren to offer its customers an attractive value proposition by reducing the cost of shipping fully-assembled, large-scale modules into Canada.

Initially, Lauren will focus on providing modular services to the heavy-oil industry in western Canada. The heavy oil industry is ideally suited for utilizing these types of process and pipe rack modules.

The company plans to bring the plant into operation in late spring of 2012.
