Pearland, TX – March 23, 2023 Third Coast recently announced the successful completion and commissioning of their latest project startup with an expansion at their facility in Friendswood, Texas. The expansion, which is dedicated to a strategic customer, includes 45,000 square feet of temperature-controlled warehouse, a high-speed packaging line, and a 14,000 square foot state-of-the-art sub-zero freezer. To fully support the project, the company also expanded packaging capabilities at its Pearland, Texas facility and a sister company added vehicles to its trucking fleet.

“We’re exceptionally pleased to announce the startup of this project, which serves one of our most important customers,” said Jim Clawson, Owner, and CEO. “Completing this project ahead of schedule, during a very challenging supply-chain environment, took an extraordinary level of teamwork, attention, and dedication between our customers, suppliers, and contractors. Failure was not an option, as this project dovetails into our customer’s world-scale expansion.”

The Project Startup at Friendswood Facility, which moved from groundbreaking to completion in less than nine months, nearly doubled storage capacity at the Friendswood site. Third Coast leveraged its longstanding relationships with equipment suppliers, construction contractors, and in-house fabrication and construction companies to keep the project on schedule, despite numerous challenges due to shortages of materials and equipment.
