GAC starts building office and warehouse in Houston near airport


Kuwait's GAC, a provider of integrated services to the shipping, logistics and marine industry, has announced the official start of construction of a new office and warehouse building in Houston's Central Green Business Park, according to the Shipping Gazette. 
The company said it plans to consolidate its existing warehouses with the new LEED (Leader in Energy and Environment Design) registered 181,067 square-foot cross dock building, which includes four acres of outside storage space.
The new building is due for completion in mid-July and is intended to centralise its local and regional executives, multiple business areas and staff under one roof in the US.
"The opening of this warehouse is a key part of our strategy to continue strengthening our portfolio of services to the energy sector, particularly, here in Houston," said Americas vice president Lars Heisselberg.
It said its import and export freight customers will enjoy significant cost savings due to the warehouse's location within a designated Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ), as well being close to George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
The group added that it has been designated by Customs Border Patrol as a C-TPAT certified member, which is awarded to companies only after intense scrutiny, best practices and on-going security commitment throughout the supply chain.
The group's oil and gas warehouse in Laredo will continue to operate as a separate facility near the Mexican border, where its oil and gas customers require daily cross-border transport.
"We are excited about the opportunities this latest new warehouse will bring to the Houston community in terms of jobs and business from the oil and gas markets," says Bob Bandos, CEO, energy & marine services.
