Delta Rigging & Tools recently held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the start of construction on a 27,000-square-foot multipurpose building located on 3.7 acres of land in Pasadena, Texas.

Representatives from Capital Commercial Investments, Tomorrow Planning, Investment & Development Ventures, & Structura participated in the ceremony, along with some of the Delta Rigging & Tools’ employees and executives.

"Today we take an important step in providing support for our growing business with this year’s most eagerly anticipated project at Delta Rigging & Tools," said Mitch Hausman, President and CEO for Delta Rigging & Tools, during the groundbreaking ceremony.

Plans to expand started in 2010 when Delta Rigging & Tools worked with Houston-based commercial real estate brokerage company, Mason Partners, who introduced Delta Rigging & Tools to a commercial park developer, Capital Commercial Investments Inc. Once it was decided that Delta Rigging & Tools would lease the commercial property from Capital Commercial Investments, they looked to Tomorrow Planning Inc. to head the architectural design of the new building and Structura Inc. to oversea the construction.

The new 27,000-square-foot facility will consolidate Delta Rigging & Tools’ current Pasadena branch location and the corporate office building located in Pearland into one location. The current Pasadena branch which houses 29 employees within 10,000 square feet is mainly used as rigging production shop and sales distribution office. The new Facility will be located less than 5 miles down highway 225 from the current Pasadena Delta Rigging & Tools’ location, but will now boast a total of 22,000-square feet of rigging shop and warehouse in addition to an expanded 5,000- square-foot corporate office space.

Delta Rigging & Tools is now 18 locations strong and the addition of the new facility will allow the business to further expand to meet future customer needs. Construction on the new Delta Rigging & Tools’ facility located at 221 Beltway Green Boulevard, Pasadena, TX is expected to be completed by spring 2014.
