PTG – Middletown Celebrates 28 Years!
Middletown Tube Works—the Middletown, Ohio division of Phillips Tube Group Inc., (PTG)—is celebrating 28 years of manufacturing specialty welded steel tubing this month!
Middletown Tube Works was originally purchased from Armco Steel in 1993, by the late Ralph Phillips. Mr. Phillips and his team streamlined the company to provide highly formable, coated and non-coated welded steel tube.

In the years following, its automotive footprint expanded to include seating and exhaust components and fluid systems. In addition to automotive applications, Middletown Tube Works is recognized for its high-quality steel tubing products in the HVAC, RV, and appliance markets.
Chamber of Commerce CEO Rick Pearce recognized Phillips Tube Group’s impact in a certificate presentation, “We congratulate CEO Angela Phillips and Middletown Tube Works’ nearly 100 employees on 28 years of success in Middletown. As a strong community partner, Middletown Tube Works has been very active in the Chamber and supporting philanthropic efforts that cultivate a community where businesses and residents can thrive.”
