In the year 1945…..
 Company began business (founder Charlie Carter)
 supplying purchased 3”OD x .065” wall “shot hole
 casing” and dynamite to the seismograph crews
 exploring for oil on the Gulf Coast.

 These 10-foot long pieces of casing were joined with
 a Tex-Tube designed integral joint with a rolled
 thread.

                                                        4
Line and
Standard Pipe
Tex-Tube entered the line and standard pipe distribution
market in 1949.

In 1950, we built our first welded tube mill and pioneered
the use of light-wall ERW pipe. This product has
remained the predominant business of Tex-Tube to this
day.

In 1957, Tex-Tube obtained licenses to produce pipe and
casing to API specifications.
