Phoenix Stamping Group Expands with new Manufacturing Facility in Fort Worth, Texas

We are very pleased to announce that as of January 1, 2023, Phoenix Stamping Group, a division of PHX Holdings, has opened a manufacturing facility in Fort Worth, Texas.

Phoenix Stamping Group, the largest division of PHX Holdings, is a successful, 36-year old family-owned business founded by Bill Chapman in 1986. His son, Brandyn ran the business from 2005 until 2022, at which point, Brandyn transitioned to CEO of PHX Holdings and Chris Woods assumed the responsibility of President of Phoenix Stamping Group. Phoenix Stamping is in the metal stamping and fabrication business with sheet metal and rod products serving primarily the material handling, towable trailer, truck aftermarket, transportation and agricultural equipment markets. The company currently has over 275 employees and has grown sales by 5x over the past 10 years.

The Fort Worth opening facilitates additional growth opportunities for Phoenix Stamping Group and the entire PHX family and this strategic location will support Phoenix’s large customer base in Texas and the West Coast. The facility, totaling 80,000 square feet, will provide added capacity and redundancy in metal stampings, fabrication, tool & die design and kitting & assembly. Fort Worth will be integrated as Plant 05 of Phoenix Stamping Group with Shod Neely, hired in August 2022 as Plant Manager, supporting the continued buildout and capacity ramp-up.

Phoenix Stamping Group has been successful through 1) principled leadership; 2) sales-driven growth focused on specific markets and customers; 3) formal planning and execution processes, supported by current, integrated systems and implementation of lean principles. PHX plans to support Plant 05’s growth by bringing its resources, processes and systems to bear, including Brandyn’s personal commitment and involvement.

All of the PHX companies are owned by a partnership between Brandyn and Covey Equity, a Columbus, GA based investor group focused primarily on small-midsized manufacturing companies.

New Capabilities

Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to have our current and potential customers push us to develop new products and processes, and this work continues. We recently added over 15,000 square feet in our main facility in Atlanta, GA in order to grow our stamping and tool and die capabilities. With stamping, we added a 1000T press line, and as demand increases have plans for more high-tonnage lines. On the tool and die front, we added wire EDM, multiple CNC machining centers and other support equipment to improve responsiveness and reduce costs for both maintenance and new tool and fixture builds. As with all growth, these efforts direct relate to our ongoing ability to service our customers.

Our New Fort Wayne Indiana Plant

In 2013, we opened an operation in Fort Wayne, Indiana to warehouse and distribute product to local customers. Since that time, we’ve continued to add manufacturing capacity in an effort to develop redundancy for all key processes and to provide a local manufacturing solution for certain segments of our customer base. In 2016 we expanded our Fort Wayne facility to over 65,000 square feet and now have redundant capability for all stamping and fabrication processes.
