GOLDEN, Colo., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CoorsTek, Inc., the world's largest technical ceramics manufacturer supplying critical components to high-technology markets, today officially announced the acquisition of Oklahoma-based Tulsa Machine Works & Manufacturing (TMW), a quick-turn crankshaft and industrial cranks manufacturer.  

Established in 1950, TMW focuses on the needs of oil & gas companies with a specialization in oilfield pump crankshafts. Seeking to become the primary manufacturer for this segment of the industry, the company recently invested $3 million in an Austrian crankshaft mill for larger crankshafts (up to 260 inches long) and purchased an additional 15 acres for expansion of their current facility.

"TMW serves the oilfield market with precision, fast-turn crankshafts so their customers remain operating at capacity," states Hank Prey, Vice President of CoorsTek, Inc. "CoorsTek and our customers expect to benefit from their 60+ years of machining expertise and industry knowledge," he continues.
