Large U.S. Pallet Rack Manufacturer Adding 42,000 Square Feet to Houston Facility as Part of Southern Expansion
Hannibal Industries, Inc., a major U.S. manufacturer of pallet rack, today announced it is breaking ground on a 42,000-square-foot addition to its Hannibal South manufacturing center on 10.5 acres in Houston’s booming industrial area.
The employee-owned company headquartered in Los Angeles announced expanding its manufacturing and distribution operations to Houston earlier this year. Construction is now underway to enlarge the existing 110,000-square-foot facility at 6501 Bingle Road to house a new state-of-the-art powder-coating production line, an environmental room and additional office space.

According to Steve Rogers, Hannibal’s vice president, “Hannibal Industries’ customer base in the South East has grown, and the company has been shipping more and more racking from Los Angeles to the region. The company’s management team felt it was time to expand in an effort to provide our customers with a National presence that will meet their growing needs.”
The Hannibal South facility in Houston will offer their full range of racking products to serve the Eastern U.S. markets. An official grand opening of the entire facility will be held early next year following the latest construction.
Hannibal Industries provides storage solutions to the food and beverage, home improvement, warehouse distribution, manufacturing, cold storage distribution, retail, archive storage, automotive and Third-Party Logistics Providers (3PL). The company works closely with system integrators, consultants and forklift suppliers to offer innovative solutions.
