Customer Demand for Surface Production Equipment Drives Decision.
Beaumont, Texas—Dragon is proud to announce the acquisition of a new 19-acre production tank manufacturing plant in San Angelo, Texas. The purchase comes in response to increased customer demand for the company’s surface production equipment in the Permian Basin.
