NEW YORK — Tenaris SA plans to build a $70-million sucker rod mill with a production capacity of 1.8 million units near the company’s welded operations in Conroe, Texas.

The facility, expected to employ about 200 people once fully operational, will include non-destructive testing, forging lines, heat treatment, threading and finishing processes, a coupling shop and a centralizer line, the company said May 3. Start-up is expected in the second semester of 2014.

"We are committed to enhancing our service and strengthening our local supply for oil and gas companies throughout North America," Alejandro Levrino, the Luxembourg-based company’s sucker rods director, said in a statement.
