Adhesives & Sealants Headlines


Dixon Valve has announced the opening of a new manufacturing and warehouse facility in Houston, TX. The new 70,000 sq. ft. facility distributes Dixon products to customers throughout Texas and the Gulf Coast/Southwest region, as well as becoming the new manufacturing location for the company’s Holedall fittings and related products.

The new facility, located at 6526 Homestead Road in Houston, replaces another Dixon facility nearby. According to Bob Grace, vice president of distribution, the new complex provides a state-of-the-art facility for both manufacturing and warehousing. The building features 30-ft. ceilings and high-racking storage, along with significantly more total warehouse space, enabling Dixon to stock a larger volume and variety of products for ready delivery to customers.

“We are able to increase the number of orders shipped same-day,” Grace says. “Also, our new location is more convenient to major Interstate highway arteries, making it easier for customers who want to pick their orders up.”

Furthermore, the new Houston facility features an upgraded product training center. Dixon offers numerous technical and sales training courses for distributors and customers that pertain to its wide-ranging hose assembly, couplings, and fittings product lines.
