Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Houston-headquarted Whirlwind Steel Buildings has finished manufacturing a metal storage warehouse for the Odessa branch of Southern Tire Mart, the country’s largest independently owned commercial tire dealer and retread manufacturer.
At 21,000 square feet, the steel warehouse measures 120’ by 175’. Owners Representative Kevin Craft explained that steel was selected over alternative building materials due to its efficient construction, low maintenance costs and exceptional durability.
Craft said his company selected Whirlwind for the job after successful partnerships on several prior projects: “Over the past five years, whirlwind has developed an understanding of what we look for and the type of issues that we may encounter which allows Whirlwind to better serve our needs.” Craft added that the building came in on budget and that “Whirlwind made every effort possible in meeting our schedule … [The] customer service and engineering department at [W]hirlwind are superior.” Noting that he’s already worked with the company on numerous projects since the erection of the warehouse, Craft explained that “… the quality of workmanship, customer service, and price … are just a few reasons of why we continue to work with [W]hirlwind [S]teel.”
