The largest U.S. manufacturer of steel pallet rack west of the Mississippi River, Hannibal Industries, today announced its expansion into the South with a new facility slated to open in Houston, Texas later this year. Between its headquarters in Los Angeles, California and its new facility in Houston, Texas, Hannibal Industries is looking to offer additional value to existing customers and increase its business in the Southern United States.
While the cost of shipping steel products is a hindrance to most steel fabricators, Hannibal is driving its steel pallet racking products closer to businesses in the Southern United States and Houston’s World-Class port; opening many more opportunities for international business while reducing the cost of shipping.
“Hannibal Industries currently manufactures and ships more than 100,000 tons of steel products each year and we’re looking to significantly increase Hannibal’s business moving forward, create jobs and better serve our customers with our Houston expansion,” said Hannibal Industries’ President, Blanton Bartlett.
Hannibal Industries provides storage solutions to the food and beverage, home improvement, warehouse distribution, retail, archive storage, automotive and 3PL providers. The company works closely with system integrators, consultants, and forklift suppliers to offer innovative solutions.
