History & Longevity
Founded over 30 years ago in Pearland, TX, Texas Honing, Inc. (THI) was created to fill a need for a specialized honing service company that could provide precision tubular products and services to a wide range of customers. Ever since, our company has offered close-tolerance honing services at industry leading throughput. We took our expertise in honing and applied the same key principles of quality and high throughput to our current suite of services: honing, boring, trepanning, drilling, turning, gun drilling, CNC machining, CNC off-center drilling, straightening, saw cutting, polishing and finished machining. Under the guidance of Robert Steele, an engineer graduate from Texas A&M University, our company has developed a unique level of value-added service in each of these processes that is unmatched in the industry.
Today, THI operates from three facilities to better serve our customers. The original facility, built in 1976, is located just south of Houston in Pearland. The THI North facility is located in north Houston, within minutes of IAH. The Standard Machine Works facility is located in the heart of downtown Houston just off Interstate 10. Each facility provides unique services and is situated to meet the needs of our customers. Convenience and quality assurance are the hallmark of all three full-service operations.
In partnership with H.I.G. Capital, a global private equity firm, Texas Honing is managed by Robert Steele and a management team with an average of 20 years experience in the industry.
