Girard re-designing Texas facility
Originally published:  26/06/2012
US-headquartered tank component producer Girard Equipment has begun a makeover of its Houston-area facility, located in the city of La Porte, Texas. “The redesign will allow more manufacturing and repair on a local level, as well as provide unrivaled support to its many customers in and around the greater Houston area and beyond,” says the company. “The changes will also allow more support for the Girard Intermodal product line, launched in 2005.”
Girard says that the facility will act as a support depot for all the company’s intermodal and domestic products, including Girard’s line of DOT407 vents. Repair work will be offered on-site for customers, with pickup and delivery service available. “Brent Beamesderfer, Girard’s Houston-area facility manager since 2006, has received extensive training in all aspects of the Girard product lines at the Girard manufacturing headquarters, located in Vero Beach, Florida,” says the company. “He is the main point of contact for customers needing assistance with Girard products and will oversee the repair and recertification of all Girard valves and vents at the facility.
“In keeping with Girard Equipment’s focus on their customers, the company is also taking steps to implement an online support feature. Girard’s new website, being launched shortly, will feature an extended directory of support literature, as well as signup forms for training seminars located at the manufacturing facility in Vero Beach. In addition, Girard will also start releasing instructional videos for its products on the company website, its Facebook page, and on YouTube.”
