With more than 30 years of experience in the steel industry, National Tube Supply’s (NTS) Baytown Branch Manager Terry Flanary is one of the key drivers of growth for NTS, specifically for the southern region.

We got the chance to catch up with Terry and ask him a few questions, so you can learn more about the newest NTS facility and the upcoming plans for growth.

  1. Tell us a little about yourself.

I have been with NTS for 18 years now, and I’ve been in the steel industry since 1985.

I have an amazing wife, three incredible daughters and the two most beautiful grandchildren anyone could ask for: one granddaughter and one grandson. One of my favorite things to do is to spend time with my family. Together, we like to fish, boat and grill out in the backyard.

  1. Tell us a little about your role at National Tube Supply.

I’m the Branch Manager at the NTS Baytown facility, which opened in 2014. With this facility, we service the states of Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Mississippi.

In my role, I work closely with the National Tube Supply headquarters in University Park, Illinois to ensure offices across the country remain consistent in terms of company values and expectations. We are proud of our customer-focused service and I want that to be instilled in our Baytown employees as well.

  1. Where do you see NTS in the next five years?

I envision NTS continuing to grow its market share in the industry throughout North America. We see a lot of growth for the company, especially at the Baytown facility. In the next five years, I would like to see this facility double as we establish ourselves as a major player for mechanical tubing in the south. We will also continue to exceed customer expectations by providing quality products and striving to “wow” our customers daily with our above-and-beyond service.

  1. What do you wish more people knew about NTS?

The main thing that people should know about NTS is our value-added services to complement our massive inventory. Not only do we offer material cut-to-length, but we do it with the ability to ship orders next day as well. Our employees also work directly with our customers to ensure we’re offering the most efficient and cost-effective products for their individual requirements.

  1. What do you like most about working with National Tube Supply?

Simply put, it’s just really fun to be part of the NTS family. Our company’s commitment to our customers starts with our commitment to our employees. Our current team is great, and we are continuing to build that family by bringing in people who want to be part of something that is fun and exciting. It’s a company culture that is valuable to be a part of.

National Tube Supply (NTS) has always supported and assisted employees during times of need. Hurricane Harvey, which ripped through Texas in late August, was no exception.

During the week of August 28, 2017, the Baytown, TX, facility remained closed, to ensure the safety of its employees. Luckily, the building was fortunate enough to come through the storm with minimal damage and the only damage it endured was a small roof leak.

We are pleased to report that all of our Baytown employees and their families are safe, but a few did suffer from large financial hits after losing possessions, cars and even homes. One employee, in particular, lost everything. He and his wife were stranded on the roof of his house with seven neighbors for more than 36 hours, before they were finally rescued by boat. All they had were the clothes on their backs. Every NTS facility across North America came together to collect thousands of dollars to donate to the employees who were impacted by the storm.

In addition to caring for the NTS family, our employees were also out in Baytown area assisting as much as they could. Several employees deployed with first responders and purchased supplies for areas that were hit the hardest.

National Tube Supply is a family-oriented company, so it comes as second nature to take care of family during tough times. We support many community initiatives and during this time, the Baytown community is part of the extended NTS family.

Our thoughts are with everyone impacted during this difficult time, and we look forward to doing as much as we can to help Baytown and the surrounding areas recover.
