A manufacturing plant that was set to close in 2021 has been acquired by another local company, keeping dozens of jobs in Wichita Falls and creating new opportunities.

Delta T Thermal Solutions LLC, a Sharp Iron Group Company, announced they have entered into an agreement with Tranter Inc. to acquire product assets and an over 150,000 square foot manufacturing plant located off Burkburnett Road in Wichita Falls.

This comes after Tranter announced they would close the plant by the end of 2021. The purchase prevents the closure from happening and keeps over 60 jobs in Wichita Falls while adding the possibility of new ones in the future.

The new company will be led by Scott Poenitzsch, former Vice President and General Manager of Tranter, who possesses extensive experience in the heat exchanger industry as well as decades of experience in leading companies in the international B2B environment with a focus on enhancing customer value.
