Rigid Global Buildings is one of the industry leaders when it comes to manufacturing metal building components and pre-engineered steel buildings, so it is no surprise to learn that the firm is a big player in the development of Houston’s commercial sector. It has just begun work on a new facility that will manufacture structural steel. This announcement is seen as a statement of intent by Rigid, as it enters the local heavy construction market.
Expect future stadiums, hospitals, skyscrapers, office buildings, and other major commercial real estate projects to be built with Rigid structural steel. Best of all, the manufacturing facility, which is a massive 126,000 square feet, is likely to provide up to 200 new jobs in the North Houston area within the next five years.
This is what Rigid appears to be attempting and industry experts say that the company has a very clear five-year plan, which is to become the leader in the structural steel and metal building/pre-engineered building sector. Additionally, Rigid is expected to introduce a wide range of services and products in a bid to shake up the industry, as it expands its empire through acquisitions, development, and general growth.
If that isn’t enough, it is reported that Rigid is on the verge of branching out into the coil business and will also develop an international trading company to further the company’s desire to import and export steel products around the world. This should not come as a surprise, since the company’s name is Rigid ‘Global’ after all!
It could prove to be a shrewd move, as this will allow companies in the Houston construction industry to purchase products at low prices. Since Houston is undergoing an increase in the level of commercial real estate projects to accommodate new businesses, Rigid will not be short of customers. As Rigid is a single source supplier, it can provide businesses with metal buildings, engineering services, coils, structural steel, and almost anything else metallic that is needed to complete a construction project.
The new facility being developed by Rigid is to be located at 18933 Aldine Westfield Road and is just another example of Houston leading the economic turnaround, particularly in the commercial real estate industry, which is really set to pick up in 2014 and 2015 with an incredible amount of construction projects either underway or announced.
Rigid aims to get in on the ground floor, so to speak, and its five-year goal of achieving $200 million worth of sales does not seem to be unrealistic. The President and CEO of the company, Fred Campana, stated that Rigid wants to be seen as a ‘one stop steel solution’ for all of its clients. He also said that another major goal was to make Rigid a public company.
Rigid is a testament to an organization that built itself from the ground up though hard work and professionalism. It is also a positive sign for other companies involved in the commercial real estate industry, as there seems to be plenty of business to go around.
