Mar. 31, 2016 – MEI Rigging & Crating says it is expanding its commitment to the greater Houston, Texas, market with a new 80,000-square-foot storage and crating facility.

The new building, with more than 100,000 square feet of secured storage — including gated outdoor storage — was officially introduced into the community with a ribbon cutting ceremony through the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce, followed by an open house. The six freight docks, ground level doors, and a paved yard will support MEI’s expanding Rigging & Crating operations in the area, says the company.

“The ribbon cutting really showcased what MEI Rigging and Crating is capable of,” said Barbara Thomason, president of The Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce, “and this facility is a wonderful improvement of convenience and safety for their customers equipment.”

MEI is using the expanded interior space for storage, staging and crate assembly. According to company officials, the larger yard enables “more deliveries, outdoor storage and expanded facilities for packing and crating of air and ocean freight, as well as other large items for export.” Security features include indoor storage space for warehoused equipment and a fenced outdoor area with security cameras.
